Our condo (I wish!)


Perhaps some of us dream of where we would live if we were billionaires. An apartment in NY, in Paris or London (or all of them!) Maybe something like this one I spotted in an online advertisment just now. This condo on the 72nd floor has just 6 rooms, 2 bedrooms, and 4 (!) bathrooms, with “incredible views” of Central Park, the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson, concierge service, health club, pool, roof garden and garage. It’s a snap at $US19.8million, maintenance of $6,000 and monthly real estate tax of $7,500; 3,920 sq ft at a mere $5,051 per sq ft. That’s about 10 times the price per sq ft. of our place in Canberra—and much bigger as well.
