The always-expensive Manhattan real estate market has gained a sky-high listing with an equally lofty price tag, with the former home of architect Paul Rudolph recently hitting the market for $27.5 million. ""According to Curbed"":http://curbed.com/archives/2012/12/03/late-starchitect-paul-rudolphs-former-home-listed-for-275m.php, Rudolph is famous for creating ""some of the country's best known Brutalist structures,"" and his ""legendary"" former residence boasts three spacious apartments which are now for sale collectively.
Curbed noted that Rudolph cased a stir in New York when he originally bought the Beekman Place townhouse in the 1970s, tearing the roof off of the property in order to accommodate plans for a modern triplex penthouse. The apartment, which was renovated in 2006 by Jared Della Valle and Andrew Bernheimer, was also made famous on the silver screen, serving as a character's home in _The_ _Royal_ _Tenenbaums_.[COLUMN_BREAK] [IMAGE]
