A two-level maisonette at the Plaza has sold for $17.2 million in cash. It was the most expensive closed sale of the week. And here is a look inside.

The eight-room, 4,283-square-foot Plaza apartment features 13-foot ceilings on the lower level, its own street-level entrance and a private elevator, according to the New York Times. It has three bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a home office and kitchen – not to mention the master suite’s 17-by-7-foot dressing room.


The buyer is Mark Mitchell, the founder and chief executive of U.S. Medical Management, an in-home health care provider. The apartment was renovated by the previous owner Pedro Zaragoza Fuentes, a Mexican businessman.


“Everything was redone,” listing broker, Charlie Attias of Corcoran, told the Times of the renovation, noting, “It feels more like a house than an apartment. And all the windows are facing the park.”

However, the apartment still features period moldings and original marble mosaics in the bathrooms that came from the historic Plaza lobbies. [NYT] – Christopher Cameron
