‘Top Gun’ Star Lists Top-Notch Carnegie Hill Penthouse with Interiors by Victoria Hagan
Goose from Top Gun is flying away from his beautiful penthouse in Carnegie Hill. That is, the actor who played him in the iconic 1986 film is. Anthony Edwards’ home atop Manhattan’s Philip House is an urban oasis with tons of outdoor space. Add in the fact that renowned designer Victoria Hagan created the interiors, and this apartment asking $7.65 million is a winner.
While trying to unload this luxurious penthouse, Edwards may be thinking back to his unforgettable line, “I feel the need, the need for speed.” With three terraces, three bedrooms, and three and a half baths all atop a coveted circa-1927 building, the actor could have a quick sale if the right buyer finds this gem. It has a rare allure few listings can boast since although it tops a Roaring ’20s era structure, the penthouse itself was completed in 2015.
Thanks to this combination of new construction and historic integrity, the penthouse balances a sleek feel with classic Upper East Side sophistication. Large glass doors, high ceilings, and clean lines make the apartment a bright chameleon that can adapt to anyone’s taste. Hagan designed the interiors for every unit in the building, giving Penthouse South warm colors and unique finishes that feel inviting and collected. It’s fresh design and abundant natural light are impeccable, and will no doubt provide ample inspiration for a new owner with top-notch taste.
