Just a week after international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo bought an $18.5 million loft at the Trump Tower, another big-name footballer is looking to score some NYC real estate. The Post reports that Italian player Andrea Pirlo has checked out a $29,995/month penthouse at 205 East 59th Street, which makes sense as the midfielder joined the New York City Football Club just last month. The 2,700-square-foot Lenox Hill pad takes up the entire top floor of the luxury building and offers five outdoor spaces, massive windows, and 13-foot ceilings.
The three-bedroom contemporary pad boasts a huge terrace off the living area that comes complete with a gas grill and room for entertaining, another terrace off the master suite, and three balconies. The eat-in chef’s kitchen has black granite countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, and a separate service entrance. The living room offers skyline views and a modern wood-burning fireplace.
If Perlo decides to take the rental, he won’t be far from Ronaldo, who is also rumored to be joining the New York City FC.
