Her Madgesty, Madonna, just listed her New York palace on the market for $23,500,000! First reported by The Real Estalker, the for-sale property is Madonna’s long-time New York City duplex on the Upper West Side–the same one that was immortalized in the pages of Architectural Digest in 1991. The unit that ‘used to be her playground’ is actually three separate apartments that have been combined over time. Here’s a quick flashback: Madonna and Sean Penn bought the first of the three apartments in 1986. The second, adjacent apartment was purchased after their divorce a couple of years later, and the third and final one was acquired six months later, rounding out the massive spread.
The pricey, pieced-together pad is now a two-story duplex that engulfs the 5th and 6th floors of Harperley Hall, a building known for its broad central courtyard entrance with manned gate house, sidewalk landscaping, balconies, and terracotta detailing.
Inside, Madge’s fancy duplex consists of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms spread across four wings and 6,000 square-feet. The perfect place for any ‘Material Girl,’ the 15-room home also possesses 10-plus- foot ceilings, five wood burning fireplaces, and 110 feet of frontage on Central Park. According to Architectural Digest, the home was meticulously designed by Madonna’s younger brother and trusted confidante Christopher G. Ciccone.
If you want to take these digs off Madonna’s hands, you better count your ‘Lucky stars’ — and pennies — and get in touch with listing agent Arabella Greene Buckworth, because this place will likely get snapped up quicker than a ‘Ray of Light.’
So where will Madonna decamp? We suspect she’s already happily nested in her OTHER high-priced NYC home. In 2009, Madonna paid $32,500,000 for a 13-bedroom, 12-bathroom, 12,000-square-foot urban mansion on E. 81st Street. Aside from her real estate holdings in The Big Apple, Madonna owns a private, $12 million-dollar estate on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills and an East Coast vacation home in Bridgehampton, which she purchased from Calvin Klein’s ex-wife Kelly in 2009.
