Why buy a $3.6 million dollar home when you can pay the same amount of money to live in a modest one-bedroom for a year? The latest unit to join the city’s ever-growing collection of priciest listings is a 1200-square-foot apartment in the Surrey Hotel at 20 East 76th Street. The Post reports that the pad—which is actually the 17th-floor penthouse if that sweetens the deal any—is currently renting for $300,000 a month and comes with one “oversized” bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms, and access to the hotel’s English rooftop garden and five-star amenities, which include a day spa and a place to pamper your pooch, amongst other perks.
The listing describes the rental as “loft-like” with its ten-foot ceilings and great exposures. There’s also a fireplace, formal living and dining rooms, a retractable projection screen and a sleek soaking tub and rain shower. They’ve even adorned the walls with artwork by Ann Hamilton, Jonathan Borofsky, Nathalia Edenmont and Mel Bochner.
But is the offer worth what it’s asking?
