Friends star Matthew Perry will be laughing all the way to the bank if he manages to sell his extravagant Los Angeles penthouse in the paparazzi-proof Century Tower at 1 West Century Drive. Originally purchased by the sitcom star for AU$29 million just two years ago, Perry is angling for a whopping AU$51 million for the since refurbished LA pad.
Described as a “mansion in the sky” by realtors Compass, Perry had LA architect Scott Joyce and interior designer LM Pagano give the 9,290 square-foot property a full makeover, resulting in a stunning transformation that pairs contemporary design with traditional colour palettes.
The penthouse has four large bedrooms, a grand living room, massive kitchen and a plush screening room. Inside the master bedroom, you’ll find a fireplace, giant ‘his & hers’ bathrooms as well as huge walk-in closets. The living room features a red velvet snooker table and fireplace while the screening room is a tribute to one of Perry’s favourite superheroes, Batman, with a black couch featuring the Caped Crusader’s logo on the cushions.
One of the best attributes to the home is the 360-degree views on offer via the ceiling-to-floor windows and four terraces surrounding the 40th-floor property.
Not only is the apartment incredible but residences have access to a 24-hour concierge and security, four private gardens, a wine storage unit, gym facilities, a 75-foot pool and covered parking, with Perry’s apartment inclusive of three spaces.
Whoever purchases this extravagant home will be living with a number of other A-listers, with singer Rihanna, TV personality Cheryl Cole and restaurateur Nobu Matsuhisa just some of the big names who live in the building.
