Paul McCartney, known for being the lead singer of the pop-rock sensation The Beatles, has recently purchased a $15.5m USD property in New York.

Located at 1045 FIfth Avenue, the penthouse apartment is a five-bedroom five-bathroom wonder, with wraparound balconies with unblocked views of Central Park and the beautiful side of Manhattan.

The penthouse, situated in a building that is next door to Neue Galerie as well as two blocks from the Guggenheim, is rumoured to be measured at around 3,500sq feet (over three stories).

As reported in the New York Times; "completed in 1967, the building, near 86th Street, was designed by the architectural firm Horace Ginsbern and Associates and originally had 25 apartments, each with a floor-to-ceiling window wall of glass in the living room facing the avenue; because of expansions and combinations, it now contains 12 residences, with floor-through apartments or duplexes on all but two floors. But the configuration of the penthouse, which has a maid’s room and bath off the kitchen and, reachable from the upper level by a narrow spiral staircase, a romantic garret/bedroom/study with a 16-by-6-foot east-facing terrace, is essentially unchanged."
