America’s comedy darling remains an uptown girl.

Amy Schumer’s search for a new New York City home appears to have come to an end with the purchase of a $12.15 million penthouse at 190 Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side, according to a source familiar with the deal.

The duplex, a 4,500-square-foot, five-bedroom home, is perched atop a turn of the century building and features a wall of glass doors, coffered glass ceilings, a custom stone and glass gas fireplace, a wrap around terrace and a separate bedroom wing.

The comedian and actress appears to have gotten a sweet deal, since the property was first listed for $18.9 million last April.

The digs are certainly a massive step up from Schumer’s old home, a townhouse apartment on West 80th Street that’s currently on the market for $1.63 million with broker Adam Modlin TRData LogoTINY.

Schumer and boyfriend Ben Hanisch have reportedly been scouting new properties for over a month, and also checked out a $15 million mansion at 352 Riverside Drive.

Though it’s unclear if Hanisch is moving into the building with Schumer, he should count himself lucky that it has two floors.

“I’ve been here for two and a half years and for a while had my comedian boyfriend move in with me, but sharing a studio is a bad idea,” she told Brick Underground in 2011 of her first Upper West Side pad. “We broke up for a month just because of that and we are now happily together living separately. I don’t think I ever want to share an apartment with anyone again, although it would be nice if he lived upstairs.”

Lisa Lippman and Scott Moore of Brown Harris Stevens had the Riverside listing. Lippman declined to confirm the deal, and a representative for Schumer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
