Frank lloyd wright plaza penthouse


Architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s former apartment at New York’s Plaza Hotel has gone on sale for $US39.5 million, according to The New York Post.

The gorgeous home has four bedrooms and 4,000 square feet of space. It was featured in Architectural Digest last November by the current owners Lisa Cohen, the home editor for DuJour magazine, and her husband James, the chairman of Hudson Media, who use it as a Manhattan pied-à-terre.

The home was gut-renovated in 2011 and redecorated in a modern style. The living and dining rooms were extended and three additional bedrooms were created, one with its own private entry that is wheel chair accessible.

The condo has 13-foot ceilings and large windows that look out on the Guggenheim, Central Park, and more. The apartment also has access to the concierge, maid, and in-room dining services that are a part of the Plaza Hotel.

Corcoran Group Real Estate agent Marie-Claire Gladstone has the listing.
