Matthew Perry sells his ‘mansion in the sky’ for US$21.6m

2021 is proving to be a busy yet profitable year for Matthew Perry (pictured). While he has reprised his role as Chandler Bing and doubled up as one of the executive producers in the reunion of the beloved 90’s sitcom Friends, he has also flourished in the real estate market as he has successfully sold his Century City condominium in California for US$21.6 million (RM90.5 million).

The Friends star purchased the entire 40th floor back in 2017 at a price of US$20 million and listed the penthouse in 2019 for US$35 million.

Although Perry sold the unit for less than the original listed price, it has still remained the most expensive condo sale in Los Angeles since 2015.

With a built-up of 9,318 sq ft, the penthouse has been dubbed as a “mansion in the sky” – a befitting title to the penthouse with an extraordinary view of the Los Angeles skyline.

“Overall, there are four bedrooms and eight baths, a game room and home theatre,” according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

The copious space features a living room so enormous that it has two fireplaces, and there is a huge master suite with multiple living areas. It also boasts four terraces.

For dining, the options include an island seating, a table for casual dining in the chef’s kitchen or a separate room with a glass wall to feast your eyes on the Los Angeles city while you feed your palates.

The condominium itself features an array of facilities such as a four-acre private garden, 75ft long swimming pool, screening room, yoga and pilates studio, wine storage facility, 24/7 valet, doorman and concierge.

The 42-storey City Centre Condominium, designed by  Robert A.M. Stern Architect in 2009, is home to some of the big names of the entertainment industry such as Paula Abdul, Elizabeth Berkley and Rihanna.

Although Perry has sold two of his California homes as he spends most of his time residing in New York, he still owns a Pacific Palisades cottage in the former city, which he purchased for US$6 million last year.
