If Roman Roy have been an actual particular person, he wouldn’t dwell on the Higher West Facet.
So mentioned a real-life actual property dealer lately. But, Roman’s residence in the course of the fourth season of “Succession,” the hit HBO present a couple of trio of mega-rich siblings vying for management of their father’s media empire, is definitely a penthouse at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, with panoramic metropolis views. Followers of the present have been there with Roman (performed by Kieran Culkin) throughout a current episode when he solemnly brushed his tooth the morning after a devastating plot twist.
The four-bedroom duplex is available on the market for $38 million. Daniella G. Schlisser, the real-life affiliate dealer with Brown Harris Stevens and an inventory agent for the residence, mentioned that if Roman have been an actual particular person, she would redirect him south, most likely to TriBeCa, the place he would possibly obtain a hotter welcome. Given his successful character, she’d advise him: “Nobody’s going to speak to you right here — you received’t make any pals” within the family-oriented Higher West Facet.
Two different “Succession” areas are additionally available on the market — Roman’s Chelsea townhouse from Season 2, listed for $22.5 million (down from $24.995 million) and his brother Kendall Roy’s Higher East Facet penthouse from Season 4, listed for $29 million (down from $33 million). The brokers for all three listings are leaning into the present’s addictive love-to-hate watchability as they attempt to persuade consumers to pluck the trophies in a sluggish housing market.
“I had somebody name me and provide me an excellent quantity as a result of they noticed the present,” mentioned Lila Nejad, a Douglas Elliman salesperson and the itemizing agent for Roman’s Season 2 townhouse on West seventeenth Avenue. Nevertheless it’s nonetheless available on the market, and now rented to a tenant paying $100,000 a month to dwell in six tales of opulence, with a house theater, personal storage and indoor resistance pool.
To deliver extra visitors to 200 Amsterdam, Ms. Schlisser partnered with the gross sales group for the penthouse at 180 East 88th Avenue — the place viewers this season watched Kendall (Jeremy Robust) droop on his Brutalist-esque bed room flooring in grief — to host a doubleheader brokers’ open home on Could 9, giving the actual property group a style of the place a Roy inheritor (or, higher but, their real-life consumer) might dwell.
“Individuals need what everybody else has deemed fabulous,” mentioned Ms. Schlisser, standing in the lounge of the 200 Amsterdam penthouse, as she admired the view of northern Manhattan and the Bronx. “And that is what they selected.”
Paul Eskenazi, a location supervisor for “Succession,” doesn’t see Roman Roy as a lot of an Higher West Sider both — one thing he thought-about when choosing choices for Jesse Armstrong, the present’s creator.
“It’s a balancing act, actually,” Mr. Eskenazi mentioned. But when Roman did dwell within the space, he would most likely select 200 Amsterdam. At 668 toes, the constructing is the tallest within the neighborhood and was on the heart of a protracted authorized dispute with group organizations that waged an in the end unsuccessful battle to lop off the highest 20 flooring.
To present the house Roman vibes, set dressers rearranged the first bed room, including an oversize print of a lady’s naked breasts above the mattress. Different Romulus particulars included a vape pen tossed on a desk and an evening stand stuffed with books, together with “Unhealthy Intercourse” by Nona Willis-Aronowitz.
The room was pumped stuffed with cologne to set the temper. “It was actually musky, like a sleazy sort of odor,” mentioned Matthew R. Breeden, a vice chairman at SJP Properties, a developer of the constructing, who attended the shoot final summer season.
If Kendall Roy lived north of 59th Avenue, Mr. Eskenazi suspects it will be in a constructing like 180 East 88th Avenue, which he described as feeling extra downtown than Higher East Facet. “It’s horny, it’s cool,” he mentioned. “It’s that feeling of him being on prime of the world, perched up someplace within the sky, wanting down on everybody else.”
The builders of the Kendall penthouse — a triplex with a spiraling staircase, 28-foot ceilings within the eating space and dramatic arched home windows — aren’t finished benefiting from the showstopping location. The constructing’s resident lounge doubled as Shiv Roy’s (Sarah Snook) workplace on the latest episode, and its wine cellar made a quick look with Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard) within the present’s trailer. On the morning a reporter visited, Fendi had taken over the five-bedroom house to host a non-public occasion. Racks of fur coats stuffed the lounge.
“Anytime you do a collaboration with somebody, you wish to be certain that the collaboration suits together with your model,” mentioned Joseph A. McMillan, Jr., founder and chief government of DDG, a developer of the constructing, describing his model as “high-end luxurious, beautiful and aspirational.”
However is there a draw back to tying a property to America’s most loathsome — even when it’s fictional? Would possibly some billionaire discover the connection off-putting? Ms. Schlisser isn’t involved. “You imply the opposite sort of tremendous wealthy?” she requested. “What variety is that? The type that unintentionally grew to become tremendous wealthy, however is absolutely low-key?”
