Someone Can Step into the World of ‘Succession’ and Nab Kendall Roy’s NYC Penthouse for $29M
Fans of Succession wait all week for Sunday night as that’s when the hit HBO series takes them on a wild ride of wealth, business, and family dynamics. But, people can still get their fix during the week by discovering some of the places the show films. Kendall Roy’s duplex penthouse featured in last week’s episode is currently for sale on the Upper East Side. It’s the tallest residence north of 72nd Street, so it’s no wonder the 5,500-square-foot spread meets Roy-level standards. Everything must be the best of the best for the fictional family, and this $29 million listing is certainly priced that way.
Designed with high-end entertaining in mind, the two living spaces of the penthouse feature a gas fireplace and wet bar, as well as panoramic views of the city that never sleeps. The chef’s kitchen is a custom dream by Molteni & C Dada, with Statuario countertops and Gaggenau appliances.
One of the penthouse’s most jaw-dropping features is its custom sculptural staircase, which looks like it came straight out of the MoMA. Unique architecture can be appreciated throughout, with dramatic windows and archways soaking rooms in light, but the primary suite definitely takes the cake of the home’s five bedrooms. Along with a gas fireplace and private terrace, the primary bathroom is a glass-enclosed retreat to maximize its Manhattan views.
The outside space is almost as plentiful as the interior, encompassing a total of 3,500 square feet across three levels. The secondary bathrooms all have walk-out access to a loggia terrace, and there’s also a private rooftop deck fit for Roy strategy sessions or parties. Should anyone ever get bored up here, further “wow” amenities inside the building include a soccer field, basketball court, game room, and more.
If it’s good enough for the Roys, a real-life billionaire may soon take a liking to the lavish penthouse at 180 East 88th Street by Joe McMillan’s DDG. Michael Gordon of The Corcoran Group holds the listing.
