Judge Judy's NYC Penthouse Hits the Market for Jaw-Dropping Price

Judge Judy Sheindlin's NYC penthouse duplex is listed for $9.5 million.

The 81-year-old media star and her husband, ex-judge Jerry Sheindlin, are selling their Manhattan pied-à-terre. It's the first time in over a decade.

"We've enjoyed this jewel of an apartment," Sheindlin said. "Time to simplify."

Their penthouse at 14 Sutton Place South is in a prime Upper East Side location. They bought it for $8.5 million in 2013. Compass’s Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon are handling the sale.

The duplex has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two powder rooms. The 29-foot entrance gallery features a curved staircase with wrought iron balustrade leading to the bedrooms.

A formal dining room with French casement windows and a crystal chandelier is part of the home. The living room includes a wood-burning fireplace.

A second fireplace is in the wood-paneled library, which also has built-in bookshelves.

The dining room, living room, and library open to a wraparound terrace. It offers "breathtaking east and south-facing views of the East River" and the city skyline.

The chef's kitchen has professional-grade stainless steel appliances, a center island, green marble countertops, and a glass-fronted cabinet.

Wood flooring is throughout the first level. The wraparound terrace has two seating areas and lush greenery in stone planters.

Upstairs, the hallway features a white marble floor with a black diamond pattern. Three bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the fourth is near an additional bathroom. The primary suite includes a sitting area and a marble bathroom with a glass shower stall and dual sinks.

Built in 1929, 14 Sutton Place South was designed by Rosario Candela. Candela is famous for creating sought-after Manhattan residences.

The co-op is a 14-story building with 92 units. The duplex penthouse is accessed from a semi-private elevator landing.

The penthouse has been renovated and restored to fit the building's character. Original casement windows, doors, and interior door hardware were preserved. "There’s a modernity to the layout and an openness," Conlon said.

"It’s grand, but not ostentatious in any way," he added. Postilio described the unit as "classic and stunning!"
