Rush Limbaugh's Fifth Ave, Manhattan penthouse is for sale. Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh is selling his luxury condo atop Fifth Avenue, and it can be yours - all 10 rooms on the 20th floor, with hand painted wall and ceiling murals included - for a mere $13.95 million.

Limbaugh may rail against so-called elites on his widely heard radio show, but he apparently lives like a latter day Sun King himself, what with the gaudy Baroque decor, crystal chandeliers and gold leaf moldings. It might not be to everyone's taste but a gut renovation would certainly add to the high price tag - not to mention a $13,360 monthly maintenance.
It's not known officially why Limbaugh wants out. He had previously threatened to leave the city if New York's cash-strapped state government made good on threats to raise taxes on those earning more than $500,000. He can always retreat to his other residence, an estate in Palm Beach.

So how does Rush live? Large, to say the least. While not Versailles, the Manhattan place fits the very definition of a palace, 4,661-square feet of luxe spread out over a full floor with a wood paneled library, his and her dressing rooms, four terraces (two with park views), and 5.5 bathrooms. The New York real estate market has been wobbly of late, but realtors say high-end properties are getting second looks these days. With Wall Street bonuses roaring back, Rush's royal residence might just find a buyer.
