Matthew Perry has listed his four-bedroom, eight-bathroom penthouse in the Century City section of Los Angeles for $35 million after purchasing it two years ago for $20 million. It is co-listed with Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen of Compass.
Perry, 50, who while in high school made his film debut playing opposite River Phoenix in “A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon,” is most famous for his role as Chandler in the “Friends” sitcom. The NBC show, which ran from 1994 to 2004, was one of the most successful series of all time, winning four Emmy awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and 11 People’s Choice Awards. The finale on May 6, 2004, was watched by more than 52.5 million American viewers, according to news reports.
The 9,300-square-foot unit takes up the entire 40th floor of the iconic Century building — an oval-shaped structure designed by the Robert A.M. Stern firm. The unit is one of several penthouses on the upper floors. With curved walls at either end of the building, the condo has surrounding views of Beverly Hills, Bel Air and the iconic Hollywood sign on the skyline.
The entrance to the unit is designed to showcase collectibles. In Perry’s case, his Batman memorabilia is on display.
One end of the living room has space for a pool table. A sliding door opens to one of four terraces in the unit.
The open-plan kitchen has two wine fridges, a peninsula with seating for four and the same wood floors found throughout the house.
A main bedroom takes up nearly one-third of the unit with a working fireplace, dual walk-in closets and two attached bathrooms.
A home theater is decked out in plush carpeting, wall treatments and couches. The state-of-the-art home theater can be kept dark when watching movies or have natural light come in through the windows for a more versatile entertaining space.
“The Century, where it’s atop of, not only stands alone architecturally with its unique oval structure, but the level of service and amenities is also world-class,” Holcomb said.
The building amenities include private wine storage, valet parking, four acres of gardens, a full-service restaurant, a pool, gym, fitness studio and underground parking.
