How much does prime real estate overlooking New York City’s Central Park go for? If you’re fashion extraordinaire Tommy Hilfiger, about $50 million. The Tommy Hilfiger Penthouse initially was originally listed by the man himself for a cool $80 million but has since made a few price reductions.
The Tommy Hilfiger penthouse atop the iconic Plaza Hotel was originally two separate apartments, purchased by Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo in 2008. At its peak offering price, the home was among the nation’s most expensive. Dotted with modern art, vintage furniture, and a scattering of worldly artefacts, a touch of Hilfiger creativity has turned this sprawling penthouse into an interior designer’s dream.
The best view in the city? The balcony works well for woo-ing any potential guests/buyers.
Every good welcome room needs a couple of pot plants to liven it up a bit, even in a home like this. It’s the rich browns and burgundies that give this place that ‘warm’ feeling. Handy for escaping the harsh New York winters.
How can you go pass the classic kitchen checkers? Black with white marble, plus some golden accents. Probably not the room for microwave pizzas.
According to Tommy and Dee, this dining area has only been used a handful of times – the couple instead often opt to eat out. It’s a nice walk-through, anyway.
A tea room with a towering dome. A nice touch!
Tommy’s son’s room. Both the elder and younger Hilfiger wanted to go for a ‘nautical theme.’ Can’t help but notice the red-white-blue colour looks a little familiar next to the Hilfiger name. Hmm.
Yep, you guessed it – the daughter’s room. The lavenders and whites are a gentle recipe for a pleasant sleep, I’m sure.
The masterpiece/bedroom – fit for royalty. I imagine this is where Tommy dreams up his next boxer shorts design. Or European getaway.
What about all those leather-bound books? I bet it smells like rich mahogany and success. Note The New York Times piece above the bookcase that used to look over the publication’s old office. Tommy must have some handy connections to be throwing up decorations like that.
