One of New York's most legendary apartments, this coveted Penthouse is changing ownership for the first time in 25 years.

This pre-war, 11-room condominium Penthouse on 62nd Street is just off Fifth Avenue. This property, which has meticulously restored architectural details, ornate décor and double-height entertaining rooms, was home to the late entertainment legend, Joan Rivers. The triplex residence is in a fully staffed limestone mansion, originally built at the turn of the century as one of the opulent mansions of the Gilded Age. One enters from a residence exclusive elevator landing, which opens into one of the grandest rooms in Manhattan. The home's centerpiece is a ballroom and adjoining music room with 23' ceilings, gilded antique boisserie paneling and columns and two fireplaces -capacious spaces that allow for entertaining on a grand scale. Adjacent to the music room is a dining room that allows for more intimate gatherings -- its three French doors opening to the south-facing terrace, allowing for al fresco dining. The beautifully appointed wood-paneled library has a fireplace and faces south and west with views of Central Park and the Manhattan Skyline.

The second floor, with a mezzanine that overlooks the music room and ballroom, leads to the master suite, which has French doors opening to its own south-facing terrace with views of Central Park. Staff quarters can be accessed from this floor, which has a separate staircase leading to the kitchen.

A separate but contiguous two-bedroom, two-bath guest quarters has its own large living room with a fireplace and an eat-in kitchen.
