These days, prices of luxury apartments in Manhattan reached $100 million. Relying on current gilded wave on real estate market , Gilbert Haroche, has listed his apartment at the 18th-floor of the Sherry Netherland Hotel for an astronomical amount of $95 million. To be more interesting, future wealthy buyer must be really wealthy, since monthly maintenace fees for this full-floor residence is $60,000.
The Sherry Netherland Hotel is a 38-story apartment hotel located at 781 Fifth Avenue on the corner of East 59th Street in Manhattan, New York City. It houses 165 apartments that were converted to co-ops in 1954. There are only 54 hotel rooms and suites, but in the tower above the 24th floor there are single apartments to a floor.
Luxury co-op, listed on sale spans the whole 18th floor of the building, so it can be accessed from three of the building’s attended elevators. The apartment has 7,000 square feet and an additional 2,000 square feet in outdoor space and two sweeping terraces. The expansive south-facing terrace has views of the Plaza Hotel and the Empire State Building, while the west terrace faces Central Park.
This residence boasts seven bedrooms, seven baths and two half baths, the eat-in kitchen and formal dining room. The listing comes with two staff rooms on separate floors. The master bedroom suite has a smaller but still substantial terrace facing north to Central Park and the Upper East Side.
The apartment is part of the hotel, so monthly maintenance fees that come with this apartment will cost new buyer around $60,000. For that price, he will get daily housekeeping and turndown service, 24-hour concierge, and room service from Harry Cipriani, the glossy restaurant downstairs. Must mention, notable residents have included Diana Ross and Charlie Rose.

Life at the Sherry has been an expression of privilege since its construction in 1927. So, go ahead! [Douglas Elliman]
