Home of the Week: Matthew Perry’s astonishing LA sky palace
When Friends star Matthew Perry bought the entire 40th floor of 1 West Century Drive, he hired architect Scott Joyce and noted interior designer LM Pagano to transform the 9,318 square foot penthouse into a statement of sweeping luxury. Now, as the actor finds himself spending more time in Malibu and New York, this spectacular setting has come on the market.
Penthouse 40 is a dream setting whose private elevator lobby opens to a sprawling and luxurious interior with breathtaking 360° views from Downtown LA across the Santa Monica Mountains to the ocean.
The residence is surrounded by four vast terraces that open off the living room, kitchen, den and master suite.
Lavish spaces include a large living room wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows; a deluxe custom movie theater; and a sleek eat-in kitchen with white marble countertops and black leather barstools.
The spectacular master retreat features massive closets; dual baths; and a grand seating area with a fireplace, a hanging bubble chair, and sculptural light fixtures.
Remote-controlled curtains glide away to reveal the stunning views.
With illustrious neighbors like Candy Spelling, Paula Abdul and Rhianna, The Century is one of the most exclusive and ultra-private addresses in Los Angeles.
Developed by Related Companies and designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, it’s a 42-story masterpiece set amid four private acres of lush gardens with outdoor dining rooms, striking fountains and botanical walking paths.
Amenities include a 75-foot lap pool, resort cabañas, spa, Equinox designed gym, Pilates and yoga studios, screening room, dining room, bar lounges, wine cellar and conference room.
The 24-hour guard gated secured community features valet, doorman and concierge services.
The incomparable celebrity “mansion in the sky” is listed by Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen at $35,000,000.
