While it is still well below the $16.8 million listing he had in 2012, Pharrell Williams isn’t ready to sell low on his South Beach penthouse.
The Academy Award-nominated and multiple-Grammy-winning hip-hop artist, also known as Pharrell, has upped the asking price for his amazing tri-level home at the Bristol Tower in Miami by $99,000. The increase comes after a series of adjustments over the past two years that saw the luxury unit’s asking price drop by nearly $6 million. After a three-month hiatus off the market, Pharrell’s luxury unit has returned to the listings with a slight increase in asking price.
Open terraces and pristine views are the name of the game at Pharrell’s now $10.999 million listing. Found on the 40th-floor, the high-rise boasts a host of outdoor spaces that perfectly frame the Miami skyline and waterways. There’s a 180-degree, wrap-around balcony; a pool terrace; a second-level pool and terrace; a summer kitchen patio and a rooftop terrace.
Pharrell-Penthouse-Miami-14The world-class views are not lost on the interiors, which Pharrell has described as an “interesting fishbowl.” Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass encircle the 9,000-square-foot spread, which features five bedrooms, six-and-half baths, a home theater, a library and a spectacular three-story main room.
Granite and hardwood flooring are prevalent throughout the home, as are a host of high-end appointments and custom built-ins. Last, but certainly not least, an elevator provides private access to Pharrell’s penthouse in the sky.
