Joan Rivers' New York City Quirky Penthouse Listed For $38 Million — Tour The Lavish Property With Two Terraces
The late Joan Rivers' longtime New York City penthouse is back on the market for $38 million.
Rivers resided in her exquisite Manhattan home for 28 years, with her first buying it one year after husband Edgar Rosenberg’s death in 1987. She lived in the luxurious home up until she died at 81 in 2014.
The stunning abode, which Rivers described as: "What Marie Antoinette would have done, if she had money," was purchased the same year Rivers died at $28 million by a Middle Eastern buyer.
The home was originally designed for socialites; however, Rivers gave the property her own special touch by incorporating lavish details and decorations.
And while the home appears to be everything a discerning buyer could want and more, the home apparently has a quirk that the late comedian wasn't fond of: a ghost named Mrs. Spencer, who was believed to be a former owner, who haunts new residents.
According to Rivers, the ghost bit the heads off the cherubs of her chandelier in one of her formal rooms, which have 23 ft. ceilings.
Regardless, the fashionable home with Central Park views is a masterpiece.

The gold details in the formal living room with a fireplace emphasize the distinctive design of the home.
The four bedroom, five bathroom, home also includes a ballroom, music room, five wood-burning fireplaces, two terraces, a corner paneled library and more.

The private elevator entry hall leads to a dramatic two-story gallery.
The reception rooms boasts soaring 23 ft. ceilings with elegant parquet-de-Versailles flooring.
The spacious corner-paneled library is complimented by the natural light seeping into the room through the oversized windows.
The over-the-top terrace boasts manicured greenery and multiple tables to sit out at.
Rivers' home is the ideal place to host a larger-than-life Hollywood soirée.
Between the dramatic fireplaces to the elegant chandeliers, the property looks more like a castle for royalty rather than a typical home.
The soothing colors make the cozy bedroom feel like an idyllic oasis.
