Hotel heiress-turned-DJ and perfume mogul Paris Hilton will not have to stay at one of her family's hotels the next time she is in New York, since buying a two-bedroom, two-bath Astor Place penthouse for $4.9 million in November.
The challenge for Hilton had been to find a home in which she could reside with her seven dogs. She found the perfect solution with this 2,396-square-foot penthouse, which boasts a fabulous 905-square-foot private rooftop terrace overlooking Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood, and is just a few steps away from the very popular Washington Square Park.
Here is a tour of Paris Hilton's $4.9 million penthouse:
Hilton's new stomping ground is located within the historical Broadway McKenna Building at 738 Broadway, which was built as a warehouse in 1867. After a complete remodel job by Karl Fischer and Andres Escobar, the structure has been completely transformed. According to the building's website, this unit is a "rare and impressive full floor loft condominium,"
With an elevator that opens directly into the entrance foyer of the home, the apartment has a spacious and bright living room with a beautiful white calcutta marble fireplace and wide planked Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors. There are impressive ceiling heights just under 12 feet, and huge windows overlooking Cooper Square.
The master suite is inviting and peaceful, with natural hardwood floors, a platform bed, and a lounge area near the door. Flattering recessed lighting adds a warm glow. The ultra-sleek modern master bath features a walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub surrounded by Calcatta Gold Marble and finished with GRAFF, KOHLER and JACLO fixtures. The walls are also framed by the Calcatta Gold Marble, and the countertops fitted with Ceasarstone.
The kitchen is outfitted with top of the line appliances and finishes. The countertops are dark brown quartz, the lower cabinets are a high gloss wenge, the upper cabinets are high gloss white and the island countertop is white quartz. The oven and cooktop stove are by Wolf, while the refrigerator, dishwasher, and coffee machine are all by Miele, and the wine cooler is by Subzero.
Hilton has proved to be a very good businesswoman, and the purchase of this apartment is no exception, as the asking price was $5.25 million, while the initial price back in January of this year was $7.5 million. The duplex with a roof deck is one of just four units in the Broadway McKenna building, which was converted to luxury apartments last year.
