Back in October of 2013, Chase Utley decided that his Penthouse at The Ayer was just not his jam anymore, and put it on the market for $4.3 million (with $4,000+ in monthly condo fees). No one wanted to buy it, so now you can rent it and Chase Utley can be your landlord for only $17,500/month. It’s the bargain of the year. The condo, like Utley himself, is described as “dramatic yet comfortable,” and features “hours of sunlit warmth.” There is no word on if that warmth goes away once Chase leaves.
In addition, the place is fitted with “superb lighting, audio and Crestron systems,” and the rest of the description of the place has got me feeling some kind of way:
An expanded Bulthaup kitchen with a large island, Miele and Sub-Zero, including a full-size wine storage unit, opens to the main living space with a step-up formal dining room with terrace just beyond. An exquisite table, lit by a smoky quartz chandelier, was made to fit the room and is included. A study, made private with pocket doors, is on the other side of the kitchen. Reached by a custom-crafted stairwell with walnut treads and walls finished in Blue de Savoie marble, the lower level is designed for entertaining and relaxation. The media or second living room is served by a specially designed, “smoked oak” wet bar with Sub-Zero wine chiller, refrigerator and freezer drawers, Fisher-Paykel drawer dishwasher, ample storage and stainless counter and backsplash.
Is it hot in here or is it just that super-sexy condo description? Living there also gets your 24-hour doorman and concierge services, who will get really tired of hearing you tell them that Chase Utley is your landlord and that it’s really no big deal.
