The Pierre's Pricey Penthouse Will Pass From One Billionaire To The Next
Getting tired of staring at the same four walls? The late stock investor Marty Zweig's three-floor penthouse at The Pierre could be yours for just $120 million. And if that sounds a little out of your range, well, just start saving up those loose pennies; you'll get there eventually.
Easily New York's most prestigious hotel residence, the record-breaking (because of its price) penthouse was bought by Zweig back in 1999 for $21.5 million, and now Curbed reports that his family intends to sell it for over five times that price.
And why not? It belonged to the man, after all, who predicted the 1987 stock market crash a day before it happened, so its value lies partly in its history as well as in its design.
Though, really, it's mostly about the design: sixteen rooms, five fireplaces, a library, a private elevator, four terraces, a sauna and a legendary ballroom are what will lure the next billionaire. Well, that, and the Pierre's post-op plastic surgery recovery room.
