KEY POINTS

  • Matthew Perry has sold his Los Angeles penthouse for $21.6 million
  • The Hollywood actor originally listed the property on the market for $35 million
  • The “Friends” star slashed the property’s price three times before finding a buyer

Matthew Perry has finally sold his lavish Los Angeles penthouse almost two years after the actor listed the property on the market.
 
The “Friends” alum’s luxurious condo is situated on the 40th floor of high-rise residential complex Century Tower. Perry bought the property in 2017 for $20 million but quickly listed it for a massive $35 million asking price in 2019.

Unfortunately, no one seemed interested in splurging $35 million on the penthouse, and it stayed on the market for a while. Amid the lockdown, Perry decided to slash the price down in hopes of attracting potential buyers. He first lowered it to $27 million, and then cut it down again to $23 million. But there were still no takers, according to the Los Angeles Times

Perry eventually chose to take the risk and drop the asking price to just a little bit above the money he used to buy it in the first place, and the property was quickly sold for $21.6 million Monday. 

Despite the fact that the property’s price was slashed three times, it is still considered one of the most expensive condo sales in the last decade, according to the outlet. The condo found just below Perry’s former residence was sold for $22.5 million in 2015. Prior to that, the most expensive deal made was for the penthouse that spans the top two floors of the same building which was sold for $35 million in 2010. 

The new owner of the Hollywood star’s former place would surely enjoy its high-end features. The four-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom property apparently boasts unrivaled views of the city through its panoramic windows. It has a massive kitchen with two island counters and its very own screening or movie room. 

The grand living room is an area to behold on its own as it comes with tall windows and opulent custom-designed pieces of furniture and decor. The penthouse is also home to a distinct billiards area, ensuite seating areas and sprawling closet space.

If the features and amenities inside the condo are not enough, the residential building has a lot more to offer with its giant pool with cabanas, movie theater, private wine storage area and fitness center. 

Even though Perry sold the property for way less than his original asking price, the actor still has nothing to worry about in terms of finances. Apart from the $20 million each he and his co-stars earn yearly from the residuals of their hit sitcom, according to USA Today, he also recently collected a hefty paycheck from the highly anticipated reunion special for HBO Max. 

Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer were each paid at least $2.5 million just for participating in the special, Variety has learned from credible industry sources.
