Actress Kerry Washington’s Former New York City Apartment Lists For $25 Million

Actress Kerry Washington’s Former New York City Apartment Lists For $25 Million Forbes featured property

Actress Kerry Washington’s former apartment in New York City’s Lincoln Square neighborhood on the Upper West Side officially hits the market for $25 million.

The Scandal actress rented the home for about a year in 2019 (and even debuted its chic interiors, designed by RH, in Architectural Digest that same year). Washington lived in the apartment while she starred in “American Son” on Broadway. And the next buyer is sure to be just as smitten as Washington was with its incredible views, spacious layout, and arts- and culture-focused neighborhood offerings. PH2A is located in One Riverside Park at 50 Riverside Boulevard between 61st and 62nd, just blocks from the Lincoln Center and other attractions.

“This home is a majestic glass mansion in the sky with 100 linear feet of frontage soaring above the Hudson River,” says Carolina Bravo, listing agent with SERHANT. “It is a full-floor penthouse with a private keyed elevator landing, but what makes it truly special and unique is that it has four exposures (North, South, East and West) offering spectacular views of both the river and the Manhattan skyline.”



PH2A spans a full floor, with private elevator access, and is wrapped with floor-to-ceiling windows. The lucky owner will enjoy perfect views of the Hudson River. The penthouse has six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms over its 6,168 square feet. One of PH2A’s most coveted features is its sheer size and open-plan layout.



The private elevator opens to a light-filled, 60-foot great room, which features a look-through fireplace that separates the living area and the dining room. Off the dining area is a massive, eat-in kitchen that embodies sleek, modern design with its custom white cabinetry and white marble countertop. It’s hard to believe this expansive kitchen is in a New York condo building and not a sprawling single-family residence.



Because the penthouse spans the entirety of the floor, it offers four exposures, including views of Hudson River and the Manhattan Skyline. By day, the apartment gets plenty of light (even if it’s overcast), and by night, the city sparkles.



The primary suite has custom walk-in California closets, a quiet sitting room, and two bathrooms. The highlight is the Zuma soaking tub and the custom vanities. The other bedrooms feature an en-suite bathroom and plenty of closet space, making it the perfect home for large families or those who like to host friends. There’s also a media room with a built-in wine fridge, a mud room, laundry room, and an extra powder room.

Of course, One Riverside Park also has its very-own incredible features and more than 50,000 square feet of amenities, like resident lounges, a full-service staff, 24-hour doorman, a game room, Kidville kids’ center, fitness center, spa, and a 75-foot pool, rock climbing wall, and basketball and squash courts. If that’s not enough, there’s also a bowling alley and golf simulator. The building, which has 219 units total, is also just blocks from Central Park and some of New York’s best shopping, Michelin-starred restaurants, bars, cafes, and hotels.

“This home is in a full-service luxury building with 20 staff members, including a porter, four doormen, concierge, live-in super, and managing agent, all who are there to guard and protect its residents’ privacy,” Ware says. “Additionally, it is located along the harbor and the Henry Hudson Parkway, which makes it the ideal location for a discreet getaway by car.”

The penthouse is listed by Carolina Bravo, licensed associate real estate broker at SERHANT.
