Esquire Bachelor Pad of the Year – SOLD!

Finally! For over five years this unique and glamorous triplex
penthouse in Brooklyn’s famed 1914 landmark Clock
Tower Building has been for sale with no takers. Though
first listed in 2010, it was promoted with a flourish in 2011 as the
Esquire Bachelor Pad of the Year. In addition to Esquire’s glammed
out decorating and overall cutting-edge technology, there was
Charlotte – a life-sized digital lady ghost who was playful and witty,
always making you guess where she was going to appear next.
She could be seen sitting at the bar, swimming through the atrium
and walking along the walls of the lounge.

The first thing seen across the space on entering is a huge 14’
clock face window. There are four of these impressive clocks electronically
synchronized. Through these and other large windows
are postcard views from the Hudson River and Statue of Liberty
to Manhattan. A stunning glass elevator takes flight to the master
suite and upwards to a glass roof terrace with glowing floor
tiles from the light below, with its 400-square-foot glass enclosed
space and another 400-square-foot open terrace. There is also a
separate study and a technology loft which is capable of displaying
one’s social media or computer desktop slanted across the ceiling,
providing large-scale viewing.

Unfortunately when Esquire moved out, Charlotte went with
them. Empty, unstaged and lonely, potential buyers without the talent
for vision were lost in the lurch. Originally listed for $25 million
in 2010, after five and a half years of being tossed around between
brokerages, the penthouse is now under contract for $18 million
through its newest listing agent, Corcoran.Visit for more famous homes and
