Johnny Depp’s $12.78 Million Penthouse Looks Absolutely Insane
Comprised of five individual apartments — four two-bedrooms and one one-bedroom — in the city’s historical Eastern Columbia Building, the luxury rooftop residence is currently listed on the real estate market for a whopping $12.78 million. Potential buyers can also negotiate and make an offer on just one of the units and disconnect it from the rest.
Though each suite has been colorfully decorated with vibrate paints, Kevin Dees, the listing agent for Depp’s unusual bachelor pad, says that all of the rooms have been kept in its original format as the actor didn’t want to ruin the “integrity” of the building. According to Dees, only three doorways have been added to provide a seamless entrance into the adjoining apartments.
“Being in the space is inspiring, and each one is like a piece of art,” Dees tells Trulia. “If you’re upstairs in the master suite, looking at the unbelievable view to the north, down Broadway with all of the historic buildings — it’s like you’re transported to 1930.”
Despite the lack of construction done to the 11,500-square-foot property, Depp’s rock n’ roll personality is certainly seen throughout the home. Aside from a dining room wall that has been covered with a mural by Brazilian street artists Osgemeos, the eccentric abode also features vintage-inspired light fixtures and animal-patterned wallpaper.
Steps away from the units, which Depp used three as his living space while the others served as a studio and guest suite, there sits a spacious terrace with its own swimming pool, spa, outdoor fireplace and fitness studio.
Depp bought the first condo in 2007 after the building was modernized before purchasing four other ones the following year.
Dees tells the Wall Street Journal that Depp’s recent divorce has nothing to do with the sale, but it was jut the “right time to divest of that asset.”
