6. 960 5th Ave. #34B , NYC – Purchased for $55 million on May 11, 2017
Once the home of famous Asian Art dealer Robert Ellsworth, this 3rd floor penthouse now belongs to a Columbian financer, Carlos Alejandro Pérez Dávila. This was a private deal involving one of the city’s most lavish addresses, meaning the penthouse never actually went on the market. As a result, there is very little information about it. What we do know is that it includes 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, multiple fireplaces, a library, and 8 maid’s rooms. According to a previous listing, the full-floor unit’s living room, dining room, and library face E. 5th Ave, which is definitely one of the city’s most famous roads, and is likely a contributing factor to the high price.
