The real life version of Blair Waldorf’s fictional penthouse in Gossip Girl has gone into contract. The residence at 1136, Fifth Avenue was asking $30 million when it entered contract last week, but no word on the closing price or the identity of the buyer. The owner of the apartment, Warner Music Group CEO Stephen F. Cooper, purchased it in 2004 for $20 million.
Located in the Carnegie Hill cooperative, the penthouse is a duplex residence comprising of four bedrooms and five full and one half bathroom with high drywall ceilings, hardwood flooring and large floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
The listing describes it as an “iconic and impeccable Fifth Avenue penthouse” that “boasts extraordinary views of the Central Park reservoir and West Side skyline in addition to spectacular open city views to the south and east. A sizable and gracious wrap terrace surrounds the entertaining floor of this important duplex.”
The penthouse is being marketed by Anne Young of Brown Harris Stevens Group.
