Rosie O’Donnell, the comedian and chief antagonizer of Donald Trump, has just shelled out $8 million for at 255 East 49th Street, as 6sqft first reported. Here’s hoping it .
Though we can’t say definitively, from the listing photos, it does not appear that the place provides any view of Trump Tower (which is about a 20 minute walk away). It does offer spectacular views of the rest of the city, courtesy of the 1,620-square-foot private rooftop terrace, which has an integrated sound and lighting system.
According to the listing, with Charlotte van Doren and Harrison Rose of Stribling, the 3,600-square-foot penthouse has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a granite fireplace, wide oak floors, a 70-bottle wine refrigerator (which we’re sure will come in handy the next time the President ), a “sculptural Guggenheim-inspired staircase” and a Swedish sauna.
The sellers, Karl Wall, the chairman and CEO of Aylesbury Insurance and Elaine Moleski of the Level Group, paid $4.3 million for it in 2013.
