Nate Berkus Lists Greenwich Penthouse Duplex for $10.5M

New York PostNovember 20, 2015

Interior designer Nate Berkus, who got his start as an Oprah favorite, is listing the Greenwich Village home he shares with Jeremiah Brent for $10.5 million.


The penthouse duplex, at 39 Fifth Avenue, was recently featured on the cover of Architectural Digest. It is similar in style to homes he has designed for wealthy clients, like Katie Lee, the cookbook author and TV personality who is Billy Joel’s ex-wife.


The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom co-op in the heart of the Village comes with a foyer that leads to a living room with 10-and-a-half-foot ceilings, three wood-burning fireplaces and custom built-ins. There’s also a spacious chef’s kitchen with a butcher’s block and marble-top counters, and all glass doors that dramatically lead to the terrace. Berkus designed and renovated the penthouse, devoting the top floor to entertaining and the floor below for living. The listing calls it a “townhouse in the sky” with open city views.


It also comes with a hefty maintenance fee: $7,073 a month. The building was created in 1922 and designed by Emory Roth.


The listing broker is Emily Beare, of CORE.
