One of America’s most enviable abodes is now on the real estate market. Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger has listed his duplex in Manhattan on sale for a cool $68.95 million. Occupying the 18th and 19th floor of the storied Plaza Hotel, the four-bedroom apartment presents an unobstructed view of the greenery in Central Park.
An accessible location and mesmerising view are far from the only impressive features of the penthouse. The space is tricked out in pop art treasures, most prominently Andy Warhol’s masterpieces. Hilfiger’s signature touch of Americana is everywhere: a red, white and blue colour scheme in several rooms echo with the nautical accessories adorning the children’s area.
The showpiece of this magnificent collection of interiors is undoubtedly the dome-shaped tea room. Covered by a whimsical mural depicting Eloise, a fictional children’s book character who resides at top floor of The Plaza, this small compartment is a manifestation of many people’s childhood dreams. To take the fairytale one step further, new owners of the property will enjoy the full range of guest services by the esteemed hotel, including room service, maid and valet. As expected for the home of a fashion designer, the complex comes with a walk-in closet.
