Joan Rivers Selling Upper East Side Penthouse for $25 Million

Located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side “in one of the East Sixties grandest limestone mansions,” is entertainer Joan Rivers’ penthouse condo, which is listed for $25 million, according to Big Time Listings.  Although the condo address is not disclosed, Big Time says the property is located at 1 E. 62nd Street (off Fifth Avenue, in the Lenox Hill sub-neighborhood).

According to the Sotheby’s listing, the “…penthouse aerie (“nest”)” has a doorman (of course), is located steps from Central Park (naturally) and was designed by America’s greatest classical revivalist, Horace Trumbauer in the neo-French Classic style (magnifique!). The 42-foot wide mansion was built for Alice Troth Drexel in 1903. (Yes, those Drexel’s).

So, why is Joan selling?  According to the NY Times, she wants to move closer to her daughter, Melissa and grandson who live on the West Coast. Joan recently won the 2009 version of The Celebrity Apprentice, even beating out her daughter.
