The show on everyone’s mind right now — Succession, has ushered into its final season. The drama series follows a feuding family with enough wealth, power and affluence to make anyone quiver in their wake. Nominated for multiple Golden Globes and Emmy awards, this show has brought quiet luxury to the forefront of design trends in 2023. The show itself is filmed predominately in New York City, highlighting the understated yet extravagant lifestyle of the Roy family. Their opulence is expressed not only through their fashion but the lavish homes they live in. Most notable of the bunch is Kendall Roy’s three-level penthouse on 72nd Street near Central Park.
The home itself is 5,500 square-feet with five bedrooms, a spa-like bathroom overlooking the skyline, panoramic views and custom designed Moleini & C Dada kitchen. This property isn’t cheap, however, with a listing price of $29M — there is nothing quietly luxurious about that price tag. But if you’re ready to ball hard with the big dogs, check out what this humble abode has to offer.
The Living Room
Have you seen a more gorgeous living room? The cathedral-like ceilings attract tons of natural light for those important glam selfies. The views are absolutely jaw-dropping with an unobstructed pov of Central Park and Manhattan. This is exactly what we imagine when we think of extravagant minimalism.
Only the finest feasts are made in this custom kitchen. Outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures, you’ll feel like every meal is Michelin-star-worthy. The massive waterfall island is a stunning centrepiece the already gorgeous wood and marble finishes. If you plan on hiring a private chef, not to worry the natural light coming from the floor-to-ceiling windows will still make for good Instagram content.
In our opinion, the best part of this home has to be the 3,500 square-feet of additional outdoor space. The terrace is absolutely stunning with views for days and vibes for weeks. The gas fireplace adds that touch of romance, while the space itself is the perfect playground for posh parties. If you’re stuck between nature and a New York state of mind, this terrace is the one for you.
