Keith Richards Is Selling His Manhattan Penthouse

The Rolling Stones guitarist can’t get no satisfaction when it comes to New York real estate.

Less than two years after buying it for $10.5 million, Keith Richards is saying goodbye to his four-bed, four-bath home for sale in Manhattan. The rocker’s duplex penthouse, last renovated in 2011, is in one of Fifth Avenue’s most prestigious properties — and now the price tag is $12.23 million.

The contemporary-style property includes three setback terraces on the main floor, offering stunning views of the stylish Greenwich Village neighborhood from the living, dining, and entertainment spaces. A library/guest room with a full en-suite bathroom can be fully separated from the rest of the floor by a large sliding wall. And the master bedroom suite boasts two spacious walk-in closets (no doubt packed with Keith’s lovely array of leather jackets and silk scarves), and a spa-like bathroom with a soaking tub and double vanity.

An open staircase with a leather-wrapped bronze handrail leads to the upper level, where there are two winged bedrooms, both of which have en-suite baths. In between, a large sitting area offers private city views. The 2011 renovation added Lutron lighting, central AC with an air-purifying system, and a fully integrated Sonos sound system, which we’re sure got cranked up once or twice.

The sophisticated Art Deco property was originally a luxury hotel, designed by architect Harvey Wiley Corbett in 1929. But in true rock star style, this isn’t Richards’ only home. He also has a bucolic retreat in ritzy Weston, CT (you may have caught a glance of it in Vogue a few years back). Clearly, when this guy plays “Gimme Shelter,” what he means is a multimillion-dollar pad.
