Conan O’Brien has officially listed his duplex penthouse for $29.5 million.
Coming on the heels of rumors that O’Brien was secretly listing his New York penthouse, the news has become official with the hearty price tag nearing $30 million.
The penthouse, which is located on the 17th and 18th floor of The Majestic building in Manhattan, features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, three terraces, two libraries and Central Park West views.
The Majestic building, which was erected in 1931, is a twin towered Art-Deco style building located at 115 Central Park West; it boasts of 29 floors and 238 apartments. It once housed some of the former heads of the Luciano crime family whose names include Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano and Frank Costello as well as columnist Walter Winchell. Sitting right across the street is the famous Dakota home of Yoko Ono and Carly Simon.
A portion of the property, namely the two 17th floor units, was purchased for an undisclosed amount by the comedian in 2002. O’Brien must have like the complex so much that he came back in 2007 and purchased the unit above his current property, Unit 18C, under the name C. Christopher O?Brien. This purchase was in the amount of $10 million.
The unit is listed with Brown Harris Stevens? private directory using their power agent, John Burger. Neither Burger nor O’Brien would respond to questions from the press about the listing.
Some speculate that this means O’Brien is officially leaving New York City for Los Angeles as he and his wife, Liza paid a hefty $10.75 million back in 2008 for a six-bedroom home in the Brentwood area. Do not shed a tear for the guy though; his Los Angeles home boasts of a 1,500-bottle wine room, a 60-foot-long veranda and a steam room and sauna.
