Could this place BE any more spec­tac­u­lar?

Gloucestershire Echo - - OPEN HOUSE -

BY SEA­SONS nine and 10, the stars of US sit­com Friends were bank­ing an im­pres­sive $1m per episode, so it’s no sur­prise that they have plenty of spare cash to put in prop­erty. Ac­tor Matthew Perry, who played Chan­dler Bing in the long-run­ning show, cer­tainly in­vested his earn­ings wisely, in bricks and mor­tar, with some stun­ning views thrown in. In fact the star, who’s just cel­e­brated his 50th birth­day, has been pretty shrewd when it comes to prop­erty buy­ing and selling, deal­ing in a port­fo­lio of lux­ury Cal­i­for­nian homes over the past decade. He bought the jaw-drop­ping Pent­house 40 at The Cen­tury in Los An­ge­les af­ter selling an­other home in LA’S Hol­ly­wood Hills Bird Streets in 2017. The pa­parazzi-proof condo cov­ers the en­tire 40th floor of the 42-storey build­ing and, for good rea­son, is known as the Man­sion in the Sky. A su­per-high spec in­te­rior takes up more than 9,000sqft and was trans­formed by Matthew’s de­sign team in­clud­ing ar­chi­tect Scott Joyce and in­te­rior de­signer LM Pagano. The cus­tomised, and highly glam­orous home fea­tures four be­d­rooms, a huge liv­ing room and top-of-the-range screen­ing rooms (per­fect for watch­ing all those end­less Friends re­peats, ob­vi­ously). The mas­ter bed­room has in­cred­i­ble views across the LA sky­line, a ro­man­tic seat­ing area with fire­place, and dual baths and walk-in clos­ets so there will be no fight­ing over wardrobe space or whose turn it is to take a soak. Four mas­sive ter­races pro­vide an abun­dance of pri­vate out­door space and yet more views – this time 360-de­grees of lights and land­marks, from the down­town sky­line to the beau­ti­ful ocean, the leg­endary Hol­ly­wood sign and the lush green­ery of the hills of Bel-air and Bev­erly Hills. The agents say ‘other world-class ameni­ties’ in­clude an over-sized pool with ca­banas, top-end gym and fit­ness stu­dio, a cin­ema and pri­vate wine stor­age. And, of course, be­cause any­one who’s got $35m to spend doesn’t want to be both­ered, the gated Cen­tury build­ing also fea­tures round-the-clock concierge and se­cu­rity.

Pent­house 40 is on the mar­ket for $35m with Com­pass, rep­re­sented by Greg Hol­comb and Cas­san­dra Petersen (com­pass.com).
