Perhaps the low-key lifestyle of an historic townhouse in Vinegar Hill didn’t agree with Twilight Star Robert Pattinson. Because he’s now reportedly been spotted checking out a much more high-profile pad in West Chelsea, according to the Post. In fact, the $20 million penthouse in the famous Sky Garage building is so impressive that it has its own private drive-in elevator. Yup, that’s right, the Selldorf Architects-designed tower at 200 Eleventh Avenue is considered “paparazzi proof,” since celeb residents including Nicole Kidman can drive right into their personal car elevators that take them directly to their contemporary apartments.
Pattison toured the $20 million, three-bedroom, 3,598-square-foot penthouse of this unprecedented building, which has other jaw-dropping features like a glass floor that opens up with the press of a button to reveal a stairway that leads to the bedroom wing below.
The penthouse was completely renovated over 18 months in a space-age modern style by MVRDV Architects along with Young Woo and Associates. It features Brazilian teak floors and 80 feet of unobstructed river views thanks to massive floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors that open up, protected by a glass balustrade. There are also plenty of art walls to display one’s collection.
The outdoor space in the penthouse is its crowning jewel. There are two loggia terraces, one for dining and one for lounging.
Pattinson was surely not disappointed by the master bedroom suite. It comes complete with two walk-in closets; an all-white, en-suite bathroom with back-lit LED tiles; and an adjoining lounge with 20-foot ceilings, a wall of shelving, and more spectacular views.
But of course the private car elevator is the major selling point here, especially when you’re constantly mobbed by Twifans.
