When Tom Clancy passed away in 2013, he left behind a vast legacy of popular fiction, numerous film/TV adaptations, and more video games than you’d ever have time to play. The man behind the Jack Ryan character, Rainbow Six, and more also left behind a “luxurious” yet “efficient” Ritz-Carlton penthouse in Baltimore, which is now hitting the market for US$15 million.
You’d be correct in assuming franchises with a) a heavy presence on shelves, screens, consoles across the globe, and b) your full name attached on every singly release would set you up for life. And it’s clear where some of that Splinter Cell money went. Bonus Trivia: did you know Tom Clancy only received US$5,000 when he sold The Hunt For Red October’s publishing rights? And an entire career shortly thereafter, of course. Still… imagine being the operator who landed that deal.
Offering “style, intelligent design, and functional beauty”, this 12,000-square foot property is the consolidation of three separate penthouses into one (all from the same floor). Completed in 2020 after an extensive two-year building process, similar to countless high-rising + high-end dwellings, according to the listing, it’s more than equipped for both entertaining and simply kicking back to enjoy the good life.
With 4 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 4 balconies, and 5 garage parking spaces, there’s a gourmet kitchen fitted out with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances; an exceedingly premium home theatre to watch either Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, Chris Pine, or John Krasinski have a stab at portraying Jack Ryan; two home office spaces with custom bookshelves and a private patio (city views included); fully-equipped home gym; and after a long day of writing compelling action-thrillers with strong undertones of real politics, you may retire in a spacious master ensuite – heavy emphasis on “spacious”.
Given how the Tom Clancy penthouse is part of the Ritz-Carlton residency, amenities also include the following:
- Valet parking for residents & guests
- Meditation garden w/ waterfall
- “Exceptional” security w/ 88 cameras surrounding the property
