The 'Greatest Living Room in the History of NYC' Asks $20M

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: New York, N.Y.
Price: $20,000,000
The Skinny: Between the wall of windows overlooking the Natural History Museum and Central Park, the 24-foot ceilings, and the nearly 50-foot length, it's understandable that the New York Daily News would term the grand salon in this Upper West Side penthouse the "greatest living room in the history of New York City." Set on the 13th floor of a Gothic-influenced "studio building," the three-bedroom apartment is listed for $20M, a huge, $13.5M premium over the previous high sale for a three bedroom in this building. That world-beating living room, clearly the apartment's key selling point, is decked out with a 17th-century stone fireplace imported from the Iberian peninsula, towering Corinthian columns, enough wall space for plenty of (assuredly pricey) art, and a ceiling hand-painted by Spanish artist Ramon Canet.
