NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) - The triplex penthouse at the Pierre Hotel, located at 795 Fifth Avenue, is the exclusive listing of Sotheby's International Realty, Inc., the real estate brokerage firm announced today. The 16-room residence is offered at $125 million.
"The demand for luxury and ultra-luxury residential real estate in New York remains strong and vibrant," said Kathy Korte, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby's International Realty, Inc. "As the world's financial capital, New York City continues to be a world-class destination for wealthy individuals seeking extraordinary properties like this one."
Sotheby's International Realty agents Elizabeth Sample, Brenda Powers and Serena Boardman with the firm's East Side Manhattan brokerage are collaborating on the listing.
"We believe we have New York's 'dream team' on this important assignment," noted Matthew Dwyer of Boston's Roseview Group, adviser to the owner, who selected Sotheby's International Realty after considering other New York brokers.
"This is a residence that is truly without peer," said Elizabeth Sample. "Enjoying all of the amenities of one of the world's greatest hotels, the prewar residence makes a stunning statement with its spectacular views and extraordinary design."
"Considered one of the most important properties in North America, the penthouse is nothing short of awe inspiring," said Brenda Powers. "This elegant and sophisticated property could never be duplicated."
The property's 1999 sale set a record at that time for the highest sale of a privately owned Manhattan cooperative.
