Kerry Washington’s former New York rental for sale

The luxury New York penthouse Scandal actress Kerry Washington used to rent has hit the market with the hefty price tag of US$25 million.

According to the New York Post, the swish pad has had $2.5 million price drop and new broker, Carolina Bravo of Serhant, has taken over the hunt for a buyer.

Washington paid nearly US$70,000 a month to live in the 573sq m Upper West Side penthouse at 50 Riverside Blvd, when she was performing on Broadway, starring in American Son in 2019.

The luxury residence takes up an entire floor and includes a private elevator landing, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for stunning sunset views of the Hudson River. While there are also open living and dining areas divided by a look-through fireplace.
