Things are good in Shondaland — really good. Shonda Rhimes, the creative mastermind responsible for television hits like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” has just purchased a stunning Lenox Hill penthouse at 775 Park Ave. for a hefty $11.75 million — $750,000 below the unit’s last asking price of $12.5 million.  There’s lots to cover here, so put on your white hat and take a tour of her new digs.

This posh, 2-bedroom penthouse is located in a full-service 1920s building designed by famed architect Rosario Candela. A large terrace wraps around the entire unit, providing plenty of jaw-dropping views. In the words of Olivia Pope, every exquisite detail of this luxury co-op has “been handled.” It even comes with a private elevator. It’s perfect for keeping a low profile, or having famous friends over for dinner on the sly.

Each one of this unit’s gorgeous rooms flows into the next, with restored moldings and chandeliers hanging from the high ceilings. Eastern and southern exposures in the living room ensure the space gets plenty of sunlight, while the wood-burning fireplace will keep things toasty in the winter months.

The custom kitchen offers plenty of storage and Miele appliances, while the center island provides an intimate dining space. For larger gatherings, there’s a formal dining room off the kitchen that is currently being used as a library.

The 2 spacious bedrooms each come with an en suite bath, while the master bath has a marble floor copied from Versailles. That’s right: Rhimes can wake up in the morning and walk on Versailles while getting ready for her day. There’s terrace access off the master bedroom too, leaving plenty of space for Rhimes to lounge and sip tea while she plots her next prime-time takeover. The showrunner will definitely be staying busy — she now has several projects in the queue for Netflix.
