Riverside Drive, Estate of the Day
Today's listing, a New York duplex penthouse on Riverside Drive on Manhattan's Upper West side is actually a double celebrity home. As the Wall Street Journal reported it is currently owned by CNN correspondent, Miles O'Brien but he and his wife bought it from actor Christopher Meloni (of Law and Order, and Oz) and his wife, Sherman Williams-Meloni. The nearly 2,000-square-foot duplex penthouse has three bedrooms and a terrace overlooking the river. The living room has three exposures and is wired for surround sound. The adjoining dining room has oversized windows and access to the water-irrigated terrace. The eat-in kitchen includes granite countertops, Sub Zero refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher. The master suite is upstairs and there are two other bedrooms each with its own bath. The building has a 24-hour doorman, garage, gym, kid's playroom, storage and a deck. The apartment is listed at $3.495 million. Mr. O'Brien and his wife bought the apartment in 2005 for $3.2 million. After the jump, the living room at sunset.
