A penthouse that was custom-designed for author Tom Clancy for $US15 million has been put up for auction.

The open plan penthouse is located in the Ritz-Carlton Residences in the Inner Harbour area of Baltimore, Maryland, and has 10-foot ceilings throughout.

It also comes with five parking spaces, including valet parking services, and an elevator that takes you from the garage right inside the penthouse.

Elite Auctions described it as “the most impressive and opulent home in Baltimore.”


The penthouse is located in Maryland’s Ritz-Carlton Residences.

The 12,000 square foot penthouse was specially made for Clancy in 2010 by combining three individual penthouses, making it the largest penthouse in the city.

It cost $US12 million for the three properties, and he spent a further $US3 million refurbishing it.


It sits right on the waterfront by the Inner Harbour.
