Rapper Bad Bunny rents good New York penthouse

Grammy-winning rapper Bad Bunny, born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, has moved to New York City, taking up residence in a luxurious Chelsea penthouse with a monthly rent of $150,000.

The apartment’s features include four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, spread over a generous 422sq m, according to the Robb Report.

The apartment also boasts a vast patio area of 426sq m, equipped with a private lap pool and an outdoor kitchen.

This opulent dwelling was last marketed for $18.5 million by estate agents Chase Landow and Ryan Serhant.

It’s set to feature in a new Netflix series focusing on high-end real estate next year.

The interior of the apartment offers oak floors, custom wood paneling, and 13.66m high ceilings.

Expansive sliding glass walls provide breathtaking views of New York City.

Accessed through a secure key-lock elevator, the property opens into a windowed gallery that leads to an open-plan living room, a library, and a south-facing terrace.

The library features an eye-catching sculptural staircase that takes you to the expansive rooftop area.

The main floor also houses a dining room and an eat-in kitchen, the latter furnished with custom Molteni cabinets, stainless steel countertops, terrazzo flooring, and top-grade Gaggenau appliances.

Not to be outdone, the primary bedroom suite is designed for luxury, featuring dual walk-in closets and a private balcony.

The accompanying en-suite bathroom is equally lavish, outfitted with large marble slabs, heated floors, an oak vanity, and a soaking tub. Bad Bunny, originally from Puerto Rico, also owns properties in San Juan, Miami, and Los Angeles.

Earlier this year, he spent $8.8 million on a mansion in the Hollywood Hills.
