Joan Rivers' Manhattan Penthouse Sold to 'Middle East Ryalty' for $28 Million

Top dollar: Joan Rivers' luxurious Manhattan apartment was sold to 'Middle East royalty' for a whopping $28m according to a recent report from CNBC

The home was being marketed by real estate broker Leighton Candler of the Corcoran Group on behalf of daughter Melissa Rivers, following the comedienne's untimely death in September. 

Insiders for CNBC declined to reveal the identity of the buyers but did disclose that they had closed on the deal unusually quickly, likely paying cash.

The expansive property, which was listed in February, occupies the entire top three floors of a seven-story, turn of the century Gilded Age mansion. 

Joan once described the Upper East Side condo as 'where Marie Antoinette would have lived if she had the money.'

Glamorous: The entertainment spaces are inspired by Louis XIV and boast 23-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and antique columns

According to Daily News, Rivers she bought the apartment in 1988, ordering a painstaking renovation, though holding onto some of the apartment's original period details.

The 5,100-square-foot, four-bedroom penthouse boasts two large entertainment spaces, which can accommodate 125 people.  The Louis XIV-inspired rooms - which include both a former ballroom and music room - have 23-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and antique columns. 

The apartment also comes equipped with a wood-paneled library, two outdoor terraces, a spacious master suite, a dining room, and a separate two-bedroom, two-bath guest apartment with its own living room, fireplace, and kitchen.
