Jennifer Lopez Lists Duplex Penthouse in New York City’s NoMad Neighborhood

Location:
New York City, N.Y.
Price:
$26.95 million
Size:
6,540 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms

Just weeks after Page Six wagged their tongues about Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez hunting for a sprawling Park Avenue apartment where they can cohabitate, comes word via the New York Times that Fly Girl turned international showbiz cynosure hoisted her mansion-sized duplex penthouse in Manhattan’s NoMad nabe up for sale at $26.95 million. Property records indicate the entrepreneurial show business hyphenate, with a 2016-2017 income the bean counters at Forbes estimate at about $38 million and a net worth of more than $300 million, purchased the posh penthouse almost exactly three years ago for $20,161,350.

With four en suite bedrooms and six full and two half bathrooms in 6,540-square-feet, the generously terraced penthouse occupies the top floors of the Whitman Mansion, an elegant, four-unit Georgian-style boutique building built in 1924, and features wide plank rift-sawn oak floorboards, ceiling heights that soar to more than 12 feet, slab marble bathrooms, a comprehensive home automation system and four lushly planted terraces that together measure more than 3,000-square-feet. The handful of well-heeled residents at the Whitman Mansion pay extraordinary common charges — in the case of Lopez’s penthouse they run close to $11,000 per month, not including property taxes — that cover costs for full-time doormen, a refrigerated package room, a small gym and private storage lockers in the basement.

A key-lock elevator and private landing open to a massive, ballroom-scaled and sky light topped living/dining room that’s more than 30-feet-wide and 45-feet-long with a trio of arched French doors that open a sunny, south-facing terrace with treetop views into Madison Square Park as well as across the park to the MetLife clock tower and the iconic Flatiron Building. At the geographical center of the long and slender penthouse’s lower level, a combination dining area and kitchen gleams with high-gloss white cabinetry, a double wide marble-topped island with integrated snack bar and two full-height, glass-fronted wine storage fridges. Beyond the kitchen, three comfortably ample, although not particularly large, en suite guest bedrooms are joined by a laundry room and a staff office with attached bathroom.

A staircase in the living room zigzags up to an approximately 600-square foot media/family room on the second level that opens through French doors on opposite ends to the apartment’s two largest terraces and a separate stairway in the bedroom wing climbs to the master bedroom where two sets of French doors lead to a huge terrace shared with the media lounge. There’s also a fitted dressing room and two bathrooms, one of them far larger than the other and lit by a crystal chandelier with an open shower area, a two-person soaking tub floated in the center of the room and two sets of transom topped French doors to a private terrace.

Other residents in the building include: former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and her husband Marc Mezvinsky who, in July 2013, paid $9.25 million for their almost 5,000-square-foot condo; hedge fun fat cat John Silvetz and his model wife Wilda Deon Bray who paid exactly $10 million for their nearly 5,000-square-foot residence in July 2013; and NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon who also paid precisely $10 million for his nearly 5,000-square-foot spread in August of 2013.

Since the May 2013, when she bought it for $9.995 million, the Bronx born and bred star has maintained an approximately 8,500-square-foot shingled mansion with eight bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms on more than 2.8 hedged and landscaped acres in the sleepy but tony Hamptons community of Water Mill and earlier this year, after more than two years on and off the market at declining prices that started at a pie-in-the-sky $17.5 million, she unloaded a 17,000-plus-square-foot mansion in Hidden Hills, Calif., for $10 million. The sale of her Hidden Hills estate came about a year after she shelled out $28 million for a sumptuous, resort-like estate of more than eight acres in the Stone Canyon area of Bel Air she bought in an off-market deal from actress Sela Ward and venture capitalist Howard Sherman. Among the estate’s many amenities are a 14,000-square-foot main house, several outbuildings, an infinity edge swimming pool, a 30-seat movie theater, an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, a mini-golf course, a secluded swimming hole and an amphitheatre with terraced seating for up to 100 guests.
