Rolling Stone’s Keith Richards Buys $10.5m One Fifth Avenue Penthouse for 30% Off Asking

Rolling Stone’s guitarist and rock legend Keith Richards reportedly bought the 4br 4.5ba duplex Penthouse apartment at One Fifth Avenue for $10.5m. The asking price was originally $15m when it came on the market back in December 2012, i.e. a $4.5m or 30% reduction.

One Fifth Avenue is quite the iconic address. The luxury New York developments have to add the “One” prefix to make the address sound posh (cough..cough.. One 57). One Fifth Avenue needs no such marketing polish. Fifth Avenue is arguably the most well known street in the world and is synonymous with wealth and power. There can only be one Fifth Avenue and ONE 1 Fifth Avenue.

The One Fifth Avenue Penthouse was originally 3 apartments (18A, 18B AND 19B) which ere combined into one magnificent apartment. Honestly we were surprised that the penthouse was updated, modern and tasteful (there are a few questionable pieces like that mustard leather sofa). Floor to ceiling windows, a open flowing floor plan and top notch finishes are the result of an extensive renovation by a star architect.

We couldn’t quite find the square feet for this apartment listed anywhere but secondary sources indicate that the interie square feet is approx 4,800. Hence, the price per square foot for this NYC Penthouse is approx. $2,200 a square foot. If true, this is a nice bargain considering that NYC Penthouses of this caliber start around $3,000 a square foot.
