The lavishly decorated condo spans nearly 9,300 square feet

Actor Matthew Perry’s lavish Los Angeles penthouse hit the market Friday—as the most expensive condominium for sale in Los Angeles.

The “Friends” star is asking $35 million for his newly renovated “mansion in the sky,” as the listing agents Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen, both of Compass, put it.

The four-bedroom aerie tops a star-studded tower in Century City and certainly spans the size of a Los Angeles mansion, at nearly 9,300 square feet. The apartment includes an in-unit home theater and four expansive terraces.

Mr. Perry, 49, bought the full-floor condo in 2017 for $20 million, according to property records, and has spent the past two years giving the interiors a chic facelift, according to listing agents.

The remodel, courtesy of architect Scott Joyce and interior designer LM Pagano, softened what was once a rather sterile-looking box. The home is now replete with plush seating and carpeting, which contrast a variety of sculptural lighting fixtures and white marble accents.

He also carved out space for a home theater and furnished it with oversized velvet chaises and a wall-length screen.

Mr. Perry’s signature obsession with “Batman” is on full display in a hallway, which he’s lined with memorabilia and figurines from the iconic superhero, images of the home show.

There are also remote-controlled curtains and jet-liner views across the city, from the Hollywood sign down to the Pacific Ocean, according to the listing.

The sale comes as Mr. Perry spends more time in New York City, a source said. Mr. Perry could not immediately be reached for comment.

The superlatively expensive penthouse is unusual for a city where ultra-luxury real estate is typically reserved for landed megamansions in posh neighborhoods like Beverly Hills or Bel Air. But condo living is on the rise. The average condo price in the city has jumped about 20% over the past year.
