Singer, songwriter, activist, icon, and founder of The Beatles actually spent nearly 18 months in New York City during his self-proclaimed “Lost Weekend” beginning in 1975 before returning home to Yoko Ono. Lennon’s home during this time (that he shared with his assistant May Pang, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com) was a penthouse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood. The 4,000-square-foot, three-story penthouse has been listed for $5.5. million with Lauren Cangiano and Alisha Lloyd-Hudson of Brown Harris Stevens, New York City.
With views looking out over the East River and a 2,000-square-foot wraparound terrace that can be accessed from all three floors, this residence feels like an oasis floating above New York City. There are four fireplaces, a spacious kitchen, formal dining room, dramatic staircase, and more. The 14-foot ceilings in the master bedroom are accented by the luxurious woodturning fireplace and two en-suite bathrooms.
From the rich history to the beautiful design elements, this home is a creative’s dream space. Click through the gallery for an inside look at the Lennon-Pang apartment.
