If its on-screen credentials aren’t enough, this $1.9m apartment on New York’s East Side also offers 18-ft ceilings and windows overlooking the Chrysler Building.
The neo-gothic Windsor Tower penthouse has featured in three of the Spiderman movies as the home of wealthy supervillain Green Goblin. Its real-life owner and interior designer Kittie Lonsdale has decked the triplex penthouse out with sage green walls, chandeliers and parquet flooring, bringing a taste of the English countryside to Manhattan.
The centrepiece of the one-bedroom Manhattan property – listed with Compass – is the living room, with its vast casement windows, views of the New York skyline, and a 1920s wood-burning fireplace for the long cold winters. It leads off to a ‘hidden’ powder room and upstairs to a bedroom, bathroom and landing currently used as an office.
