New York’s Plaza Hotel has captured the imagination of generations of Americans from the 1955  “Eloise” children’s book about a precocious little girl living at the hotel, to Neil Simon’s play and film “Plaza Suite” in 1968 and 1971.

While the hotel serves as a symbol of exclusivity and luxury, the condos there offer the option of owning a home in a world-renowned building. That level of luxury reaches its peak in the Dome Penthouse in the Plaza, a duplex on the 18th and 19th floors with unobstructed views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue. The penthouse, also known as Apartment 1809 at One Central Park South, is the home of American fashion design Tommy Hilfiger, who first listed it for sale at $80 million in 2013. The current price for this spectacular four-bedroom home is $68.95 million, plus $8,695 per month for taxes and another $8,398 per month for maintenance fees.

According to his real estate agent, Hilfiger and his family spend most of their time away from New York, explaining the sale.

As would be expected of the designer, known for his classic-American-yet-contemporary style clothing as well as a line of classic home furnishings and accessories, the condo has been restored with luxurious finishes and materials. The duplex has 5,655 finished square feet and a terrace overlooking the park.

The first level, on the 18th floor, has a great room with views of Fifth Avenue and the city skyline, with a paneled library nook and a curving staircase to the second level. This first level also has a formal dining room with a wet bar and a doorway into a cozy breakfast room or tea room under the dome of the Plaza Hotel with murals on the walls and views of the city. Other rooms on this level include an eat-in kitchen, a powder room, a family room and a study.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite includes a luxurious marble bathroom, a dressing room, a walk-in closet and access to the terrace overlooking the park. Three additional bedrooms overlook Fifth Avenue and the city, two with private bathrooms and one with a full bath across the hall. This level also has a sitting room and a laundry room.

In addition to an unparalleled location, this penthouse duplex comes with the full array of hotel amenities such as maid service, valet parking and room service from the Todd English restaurant. The condominiums have a separate entrance that is staffed 24 hours a day with white-glove service for residents.
