Hollywood scion and Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon — her father was Rock Hudson’s stunt double and she sold the fancy-pants shoe company in 2011 — put her super-luxe 7,140-square-foot duplex penthouse on Mahattan’s Upper East Side’s historic and grand Carhart Mansion on the market for $34 million. Miz Mellon, who currently owns and operates an eponymous luxury lifestyle brand, had her penthouse spread worked over by flamboyant decorator Martyn Lawrence Bullard who, as it turns out, she’s currently in the process of suing. At any rate, listing photos suggest that much of Mister Bullard’s more effervescent decorative elements has been toned back in preparation for the sale.
While a bit too far north on East 95th Street to be fashionable for any number of Big Apple real estate snobs, the suburban macmansion-sized penthouse is still and none-the-less a jaw dropper with five bedrooms, four full and three half bathrooms, four fireplaces and four terraces that total almost 5,300 square feet. There’s a galley-sized foyer, a sky-lit staircase, a 41-foot living room plus a nearly 700-square-foot library/media room, and a spacious master suite that not surprisingly includes a walk-in closet/dressing room custom fitted with floor-to-ceiling shoe shelves.
