Paul McCartney has just nabbed a $15.5 million penthouse at 1045 Fifth Avenue, the Post reports. Laid out as a duplex, the unit was previously owned by developer Manny Duell who made a living turning rentals into co-ops. This particular unit was one of Duell’s creations, assembled as a gift for his wife who lived in the home until her death last year at the age of 92. Duell himself passed in 1977. With its roots in the Beatles era, McCartney should quickly feel at home here. The unit was previously described by the Times as a “glamorous 1960s time capsule with a dash of Hollywood.”

The penthouse is situated on the 15th and 16th floors, with a bonus room on the 17th floor. Each floor of the apartment boasts 40 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows with a terrace of glass directly overlooking Central Park.

An open and generous interior space boasts a living room and library that face the park on the first floor, and a master bedroom and master sitting room with the same views at the second floor.

The building itself is relatively small and discrete with a mid-century modern styling on its exterior. There are only 12 residents in all, making it the perfect pad for a celeb looking for some privacy.
