Very recently the Manhattan real estate world welcomed yet another record-setting newcomer: the Fifth Avenue co-op of songwriter Denise Rich. The 20-room unit, designed by the definitive '20s and '30s NYC architect Emery Roth, is stocked with seven bedrooms, 11 baths, a grand salon with views of Central Park, striated marble floors, a dining room that seats 22, a media room, a pro recording studio, a chef's kitchen on top of two additional kitchens, a private gym, and a rooftop terrace in addition to wrap-around terraces throughout. With essentials like these, it's truly hard to understand why Rich, who told the New York Post that she doesn't "have the need for this type of space," is trying to unload this palace. Listed for a mindblowing $65M, the co-op is officially the priciest in the city—and that, obviously, is quite a badge of honor. Have a look above.
