Inside Jimmy Choo Co-Founder’s Stunning Manhattan Penthouse

If you’re feeling underwhelmed with your current digs, you may not want to read any further – especially if you’re already struggling to meet rent or pay your mortgage.

Doing so could depress you (or inspire you to work even harder).

Tamara Mellon, cofounder and former COO of a “little brand” called Jimmy Choo, has put her stunning Upper East Side duplex penthouse on the market.

The open, and very spacious 7,140 sq. ft. apartment is one of only four inside the former Amory S. Carhart Mansion, a timeless and elegant 1913 limestone landmark. The building is complete with a mansard roof, arched dormers and a regal aesthetic.


An elevator opens into an expansive foyer. The main level features a sunken living room with lofty ceilings and glass doors that open into a limestone column-filled terrace. The dining room is complete with a wood-burning fireplace and large windows. An open, skylight-filled chef’s kitchen is sleek, clean and pristine, offering a large breakfast bar.


Offering plenty of room for company (or extra shoes and gowns), the space features five bedrooms. The master suite is the type of room you’d never want to leave, with recessed arched windows, another fireplace and – best of all – a spacious dressing room. If you don’t feel like making your way down the elegant staircase, you don’t have to – the second floor also features a kitchenette and an office.


The lovers of the good, old-fashioned book will appreciate a second floor library, which features a wall of built-in bookshelves and floor-to-ceiling casement doors that open onto a wraparound terrace with views of Central Park in the distance – offering a tranquil spot to curl up with a book in the midst of the city chaos.


And all of this can be yours…if you have an extra $27 million kicking around.
