It’s Free to Look: The Penthouse in Heath Ledger’s Building Asking $20 M.

With any luck, the sad specter of Heath Ledger does not still live downstairs. But this penthouse promises to banish any gloomy thoughts with a nearly 3,500-square-foot exterior terrace, hot tub and skylights.

The main area has a 24-foot ceiling, which perhaps explains the building’s appeal to Hollywood types used to California sunshine. Ledger lived in a $23,000 a month rental turned $5 million condo, which recently went into contract to a mystery buyer. 

This top-floor unit, asking $20 million with Corcoran’s Darren Kearns and Jim Farrah, is the only one left, so hurry because time, as they say, is fleeting.
