A Tribeca triplex that rented for $85,000 a month has hit the market for $30 million.
The penthouse at 1 North Moore Street comes with an outdoor pool, two outdoor grills and views of One World Trade Center, according to The Wall Street Journal. The 5,500-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms and a media room that can be converted into a fourth bedroom. It also has 2,200 square feet of outdoor space over two levels, including a landscaped rooftop deck with a 21-foot infinity pool and Jacuzzi, an outdoor shower and a kitchen. The primary suite has a wet bar and a suede ceiling.
The seller, Simon Posen, a 52-year-old U.K.-born investor, was an early backer of the building before buying the unit in 2012 for $8 million and spending $5 million customizing it, including with the addition of stone floors and walnut ceilings. A wine collector, Posen also built a wood-and-iron wine cellar in the basement that can hold more than 2,000 bottles. He began renting the apartment out last year after moving to Miami, the Journal reported.
The listing agent is Khashy Eyn, founder and CEO of Platinum Properties, who is marketing the property with two colleagues, Cyrus Eyn and Cash Bernard. Eyn said the unit has served as a setting for numerous TV shows and commercials.
Eyn said there’s still demand for high-end homes like the 1 North Moore penthouse despite a slowdown in the luxury market due to economic headwinds. Luxury sales in Manhattan rose 45 percent year-over-year during the first quarter, according to data from appraisal firm Miller Samuel cited by the Journal. In May, contracts for luxury condos priced at $10 million to $19.99 million dropped 41 percent from a year earlier.
