A one-of-a-kind penthouse in the East Village has returned to the market asking nearly $5 million less than when it listed in 2018. Custom designed by former HBO CEO Michael Fuchs as a “house in the sky,” the apartment at 130 East 12th Street measures over 6,500 square feet across three floors, with extra square footage found in the form of two outdoor spaces. It’s currently asking $7,850,000.

Fuchs, a real estate executive and producer, combined three apartments at the condo building into one. Situated 40 feet above the living room, the soaring atrium was created by “removing the roof and then reinforcing it with huge, steel beams,” as a press release describes.

Fuchs often hosted A-listers at his home, which is located just a block from Union Square. According to Luciane Serifovic, the Luxian International Realty broker with the listing, Robin Williams, Bette Midler, Tom Brokaw, and other celebrities attended exclusive parties at the residence.

As 6sqft previously reported, the palatial four-bedroom penthouse was last listed in 2018 for $12,500,000.

“The building itself is understated,” Luciane Serifovic said. “So, people come in, they ride this unassuming elevator to the top, and when the doors open … well, what they see literally takes their breath away. It’s magnificent.”

Dubbed the “Glass Penthouse” in the listing, the penthouse features four bedrooms, five and a half baths, and a private elevator with a door originally from the Chrysler Building. In addition to the abundance of natural light that shines through the atrium, wood-paneled walls and hardwood floors bring coziness to the space.

The home boasts a screening room, in-home gym, art gallery, two kitchens, a wine room, multiple libraries, and a laundry room.

Outside, there are multiple terraces, including a Tuscan-style outdoor garden and a separate private rooftop terrace with expansive city views.
