The real estate gossip mill was buzzing last month when rumors were heard about an uber- pricey Manhattan penthouse preparing to sell. On Thursday, the SoHo penthouse officially hit the market—for $65 million.
The penthouse has easily become SoHo’s most expensive listing, leaving the formerly priciest—at nearby 565 Broome St.—some $25 million behind in the dust. The triplex pad is also the most expensive listing currently below 14th Street, listing records show.
The sellers are distressed asset investor David Matlin and his wife, Lisa.
They paid $17.819 million for the four-bedroom triplex in 2011, property records show, and used a limited liability company for the transaction. The Matlins could not be reached for comment.
The condo, on Broome Street, has been on the receiving end of a four-year gut renovation, designed by Roman and Williams, according to the listing shared between Corcoran’s Eric Becker and CORE’s Emily Beare. The brokers did not immediately return requests for comment.
Spanning 8,000 square feet, the penthouse offers arched windows, skylights and wood-burning fireplaces. The chef’s kitchen has a brick barrel-vaulted ceiling, two proper butler’s pantries and wine rooms.
A black marble staircase leads up to the master floor with over 20 custom closets, a coffee bar and private terraces, according to the listing.
On the triplex’s top floor there are more terraces, a screening room, a fitness room, a second full kitchen, a spa and a staff room. The home has a total of 3,700 square feet of exterior space, the listing said.
Another apartment, found lower in the Cast Iron building, which dates back to 1873, was reportedly the final home of actor Heath Ledger and where he died in 2008.
