Yet another insanely expensive apartment has his the market in New York City. The price tag? A cool $95,000,000, which isn’t shocking considering last month we posted about THIS apartment that hit the market for $95 million as well. The single floor apartment is located at 781 Fifth Avenue on the 18th-floor of the Sherry-Netherland, a 38 story apartment hotel. It is owned by Gilbert Haroche who spent 2 years renovating it. It features 7,000 square feet of living space plus an additional 2,000 square feet of outdoor space. There are 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 3 elevators, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet eat-in kitchen, library with wet bar, solarium and two terraces.

      Exactly! Plus it is only a one-story space with limited views, low ceilings, and still a lot of room for updating and improvement in the interior (ex. Outdated kitchen cabinets).

        I’m sure those are brand new cabinets. They just have a funny look to them and it may be because they are expensive. Meaning that a lot of expensive manufacturers make stuff that looks strange and rich folk buy it cause they want something different. I thought something was odd about the kitchen too but those cabinets look new though. And you can tell that the apartment had a gut renovation. Everything looks brand new.

    If it is a single floor apartment, why do you need 3 elevators?

      Because the building has 3 elevators… they combined several apartments on the floor to create a full floor single apartment…

    This is $14,000 per square foot. Again, I think this is a publicity stunt to get it on the front page of the NYT real estate section. I don’t think it will come close to that price. This is in a great location, but that balcony does not even look out over the park. It would need to be turned 90 degrees to be overlooking the park. It is great that it overlooks the Plaza but the park would be better. Over on the corner it would overlook both. Of course this is a beautiful apartment in a great city but 100 million. I don’t think so.

      My thoughts exactly – for $95M, it *better* be overlooking the park.

    It it one of THE most prestigious address’ one can live in. A luxury hotel with full service to the units. Secure and safe as royalty and heads of state stay or live here. You are paying for more than sq footage.

      Amen, Michael!!! Finally someone who recognizes the value. May be overpriced by $10 million but still a great apartment!

        I’m sorry but this is way overpriced. There are other apartments that are either still available or have been available recently in the Sherry Netherland that are no where near this price. I’d say it should be listed at around $35 million. I’m not gonna pay $95 million just to say I live in the same building as Diana Ross and some stuffy old rich people I could care less about lol.

    I know you all are saying it isn’t worth the money, but the Sherry Neanderthal is one of the most exclusive buildings in New York. When a building is as exclusive as the SN, sky is the limit.

      I would think buildings like 740 Park Avenue are really exclusive. I don’t think the Sherry Netherland is that exclusive. I have heard that Diana Ross lives in the Sherry Netherland. The real exclusive buildings don’t allow rock stars or blacks. So I think the Sherry Netherland is much more liberal than the really exclusive buildings.

        Ms Diana Ross has stayed at The Sherry Netherland since the late 60’s and has OWNED at The Sherry Netherland a FULL FLOOR suite since the early 80’s and before that a huge apartment at The Carlye – plus – surprise surprise 740 Park Avenue has BLACK OWNERS as well. So before you talk about super stars and Ms. Ross being black – the only thing these co op boards are looking at is CASH CASH CASH – check your pockets Tony.

    Regardless of the supposed exclusivity, it’s still an apartment. This makes the $306 million former Candy brothers penthouse in Monaco look like a bargain.

    It’s beautiful. But the double fridges are a waste-should have just gone for a full size freezer and a full size refrigerator. Plus are those double microwaves? Nice floors throughout.

    The terraces are nice, but the rest doesn’t thrill me. The location couldn’t be much better in terms of being right in the center of everything, but the price is way too high. For a lot less money I would have preferred to have the former ballroom at the top of the tower that had been converted into an apartment, and was on the market a couple of years ago.

      Penthouse at The Pierre, I remember that listing. That is a stunning apartment.

        The Pierre: thank you. No wonder I couldn’t find it when I was searching for it!

          Penthouse at the Pierre beats this on by a mile and for less than half the cost.

            I thought the Penthouse at the Pierre was ugly. But I think it was nice because of the location and the fact that it was a penthouse and it was big and all that but I would have did a gut renovation if I bought it.

    $95 million is way too much to be on the 18th floor. This should be a penthouse for that price. And only 7,000 square feet? It should at least be 10,000 to 12,000 square feet for that price. And for it to not be a penthouse I’d say it would have to be 20,000 square feet to justify that price. But it is really good quality. Very nice floors and moldings and cabinetry.

    The penthouse at the Pierre was better.
