The penthouse of a 60-foot-wide townhouse located on 63rd Street between Madison and Park Avenues is back on the market, this time as a rental, asking $76,000 a month.

As The Real Deal previously reported, owner Mitchel Maidman of Townhouse Management transformed the former single-family mansion into seven luxury apartments. Prior to the conversion, the mansion had unsuccessfully played the market asking $50 million — while catching the attention of celebrities like Robert De Niro and Nicole Kidman.

After the conversion, the building’s apartments attracted sky-high rents, with a hotel chain CEO paying $23,000 a month for a fourth-floor apartment and a smaller third-floor listing for $10,000 per month. Now, the duplex penthouse of the building is trying for far more.

“There is absolutely nothing like this penthouse apartment on the market right now,” Rory Nichols of Town Residential, who has the listing, said in a press release.

That sounds like hyperbole, but here are the states: the penthouse boasts 6,312 square feet, five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, plus 4,000 square feet of private outdoor space with multiple private terraces and a roof deck.

Inside, there is wide-plank hardwood flooring, a 39-foot wide living room, the building’s original cornice, a chef’s kitchen, library and marble bathrooms. Check it out below.
