Shonda Rhimes Drops $11.75M on Posh Upper East Side Penthouse

Shonda Rhimes Drops $12M on Posh Upper East Side PenthouseIt seems like Shonda Rhimes, praised writer and show runner of hits like Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, is shifting her real estate sights towards the East Coast. Months after signing a huge deal with Netflix and shortly after listing her chic LA home, Rhimes has purchased a traditional-style Upper East Side penthouse for $25 million.

Situated on the top floor of a Rosario Candela-designed co-op building, the apartment offers 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a laundry list of luxury perks. The Park Avenue penthouse is accessed via private elevator, which opens onto a colossal corner living room. The gathering area enjoys an abundance of natural light due to double sun exposure from the South and East.

Much like Rhimes herself, the apartment continues to top itself with a state-of-the-art kitchen, outfitted with custom-lacquered cabinetry and a vast eat-in island. Another set of doors reveals an elegant formal dining room-turned-library, which opens out to a spacious, wraparound terrace perfect for outdoor entertaining in the warmer months. Both bedrooms come with their own en suite bathrooms. The master bath impresses with unique marble flooring that displays images of the gardens at Versailles.

For more information on this astounding apartment, Mary L. Fitzgibbons of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing. Curbed first reported on the recent sale.
