The most expensive rental home in New York is vacant and available to new tenants, provided you can afford the six-figure price. The lavish and spacious three-bedroom home is a fine blend of old world charm and modern amenities.
Address: Astor Suite, The Plaza Hotel, 768 Fifth Avenue, 508/509 – Central Park South
Price: Tenants will have to pay $165,000 per month, a sum that makes this the most expensive rental home in New York.
Owner: The Astor Suite is currently owned by Jurgen Friedrich, the founder of Esprit. Friedrich bought the prime New York apartment in 2007 for $25 million. Following major redesigning and renovations, he decided to put it on sale for $55 million. However, the lack of buyers convinced him to put the property on rent.
Highlights: One of the biggest USPs of this New York home is that it is a smart home. The house is equipped with a new HVAC system with humidifiers for the in-house artworks. There is also a Savant system that allows residents to adjust lights, temperature, music and the television by using an iPad.
Also, the home has been renovated and redecorated by the artisans who undertook rebuilding operations at Windsor Castle.
Details: The three-bedroom, five-bathroom home is spread over 4,284 square feet of space. The luxury home retains its original 14-foot-high ceilings. The lavish interiors boast of English oak panels and hand-hammered leather walls imported from France. New York’s most expensive rental apartment also features furnishings and antiques from all over the world, and dating back to the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The home also includes a 800-square-foot guest suite.
Agent: The Astor Suite is listed with Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
