It looks like Trump Park Avenue‘s Penthouse 31/32 is still looking for a buyer, a year and a half after a chopping $10 million off of its $45 million asking price. This 6,278-square-foot duplex has such a storied past on the market, you practically need an ESPN commentator to narrate it Kentucky Derby style. It made its first showing in 2007, asking $45 million. It raised the price to $51 million in 2008, after renovations. It returned in 2009, after another hiatus, asking a much lower $31 million. Then it disappeared for a few years before reappearing in 2013 with its original price tag of $45 million. Three months later it slashed $10 million off the price, landing at $35 million. Will this lavish home ever find the perfect owner with the perfect wallet?

The home features floor-to-ceiling windows, flooding the place with light and providing breathtaking views of the city. Plus, there’s an additional 1,651 square feet of outdoor space, spanning multiple terraces. No detail is overlooked, with solid oak quarter sawn floors, Italian brass doorknobs, and custom moldings.

The entrance gallery has crystal sconces, a chandelier, and a grand oak double staircase. The great room has 22 arched windows, vaulted ceilings, herringbone hardwood floors, and two terraces. Get your chef on in the state-of-the-art windowed kitchen, which features Christopher Peacock quarter sawn oak cabinets, high-end appliances, a Butler’s pantry, and a dumbwaiter. Then get some R&R in the master suite, which has a private foyer, a huge walk in closet, and his and hers baths. Naturally, “her” bath is monstrous compared to his.
