Joan Rivers penthouse apartment listed for $29.5 million

Controversial comedienne Joan Rivers has listed her New York penthouse property for a cool $29.5 million.

Located just a stone's throw from the exclusive shops of Fifth Avenue, the apartment on the top floor of one of the city's most sought after mansions, has four bedrooms and five baths.

Designed in an OTT neo French classic style by Horace Trumbauer -- the famed Gilded Age architect- the penthouse, known as the Spencer Condominium, benefits from a private lift, a doorman, a two storey gallery, a library and a formal dining area with 18th century French panels and a wood burning fireplace. The master bedroom has stunning views of Central Park and a full sized bathroom, and there is also a south facing terrace. Tall residents needn't worry about bumping their heads either – the ceilings throughout are around 23ft tall.

According to the New York Times Joan, aged 78, is selling in order to move nearer to her daughter Melissa and grandson Edgar who live on the West Coast of America.
