Paul McCartney is the world’s wealthiest rocker so he can afford to buy nice things, like a beautiful new penthouse apartment overlooking New York City’s Central Park. According to reports the ex-Beatles star and his wife, Nancy Shevell, shelled out $15.5 million for a duplex apartment at 1045 Fifth Ave., not far from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
According to the Street Easy real estate website, the residence boasts wraparound balconies, a living room, library, master bedroom, and master sitting room that all face Central Park above the Jacqueline Onassis Reservoir, plus a formal dining room and “a double height gallery.” The duplex also boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that are 40 feet high.
The New York Post reports the building was built in 1967 by late developer Manny Duell, who created the duplex for his wife. She lived there until her death in 2014.
