Leave it to Bette Midler to create a full-blown "country house" right in the bustling heart of New York City. And without a bit of Hocus Pocus (though her income from that famous film may have helped pay for it). The legendary actress owns one of the most epic penthouses in Manhattan—located right off of Fifth Avenue, naturally—and now, for a cool $50 million, it could be yours.
The Upper East Side triplex apartment has the feel of a sprawling suburban estate, along with all of the amenities you could ever dream of (a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves! a home gym! Multiple gardens with a composter and shed!), but with all of the advantages of being in NYC—including impeccable views of the skyline. Really, it's the best of both worlds, all nestled within this 7,000-square-foot beauty.
After owning it for more than 20 years, you'd wonder why Midler would give up this home, which boasts four bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms. She told The New York Times in an email that her "country house in the city" is ready to be sold because "it's time for another family to enjoy it."
Maybe you're that next family. Check out the full listing to learn more about the space.
