Boring Bon Jovi
SELLER: Jon Bon Jovi
LOCATION: West 67th Street, New York City
PRICE: $6,950,000 (maintenance and taxes approx. $5,300/month)
SIZE: 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: This sought after Millenium home has park and city views from every room. The 40-foot living room is perfect for entertaining. Corner master bedroom facing South and West to the river has a large walk-in closet and master bath with separate stall shower and double sink. Three additional spacious bedrooms and 2 baths. Large windowed eat-in-kitchen and washer/dryer complete this exceptional home.
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Are all the children as slack jawed and aghast as Your Mama was when we first found the listing for this rock star's Manhattan pied a terre? Not only is it as plain as a plain bagel, the price is astronomical. We find it hard to believe anyone in is going to pay upwards of $6,000,000 for this apartment. We'd like to see the comps, thank you.
Sure, it has a tremendously long living room, and being on the 28th floor has some really great views. It's not in one of the better Upper West Side buildings, but it ain't a bad building either. But hunnies, it's just so ordinary. And trust us here at realestalker when we tell you that you can get a much better apartment in Manhattan for this amount of money (sorry Mr. Jon Bon Jovi).
According to the listing agent's website, this apartment can also be rented fully furnished for $30,000 a month. Good grief babies, are they insane? Your Mama has a duplex apartment in a swank building that you can have for half that amount...And we got ourselves three bathrooms and a window in the kitchen just like the Bon Jovis.
We don't intend to be harsh here, but Your Mama expects it will rain pigs before you get that price and we think your real estate agent should have a good long talk with you.
