Estate of the Day


It’s finally happened, Joan Rivers is selling her New York City penthouse. Rivers bought her duplex condominium about 20 years ago in a converted 1903 mansion on East 62nd Street just off Fifth Avenue in New York City. The NY Times Big Deal column reports that Rivers restored the home including the double-height ballroom which now serves as the tremendously ornate living room shown above. The baroque room is embellished with gilded molding and a sky-painted ceiling. The three-bedroom penthouse includes a south-facing terrace with views of Central Park. Things get a little bit more subdued in the library and a bit more suited to the comedian and jewelry line pitchwoman with a large tufted leather sofa and a leopard print rug. Rivers, who reportedly is moving to California to be closer to her daughter, also owns a home in Litchfield County, Connecticut. The penthouse is listed at $25 million.
