Judge Judy is moving on from her longtime Manhattan home. The former star of her synonymous hit court TV show, Judge Judy, and current star of Amazon Freevee’s Judy Justice reality court show, has listed her stunning duplex penthouse at Sutton Place South. Judith Sheindlin and her husband Jerry Sheindlin — also a former judge and television personality — purchased the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom spread back in 2013 for $8.5 million and are now looking to let it go for $9.5 million. Judge Judy’s Manhattan penthouse is located within one of the borough’s highly regarded co-op buildings — designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela — and dates back to the 1920s. Let’s take a closer look!

View Listing

The expansive abode is accessed by way of a semi-private elevator landing, with a 29-foot entrance gallery leading toward the kitchen and living room. The living room is one of large proportions with a wood-burning fireplace and stunning east and south-facing views of the East River seen through its oversized windows. A paneled library sits adjacent to the living room and includes a second wood-burning fireplace, along with a library-themed half bathroom.

The formal dining room is just beyond the library and outside of the kitchen, featuring herringbone-laid wood floors, wall molding, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Speaking of the chef’s kitchen, it is massive and lined with windows, coffered ceilings, recessed lighting, two chandeliers, a surplus of white cabinets, a large island with bar seating, and professional-grade appliances that include two dishwashers and a 90-bottle wine fridge. 

A curved staircase connects the two floors and the entire upper level is surrounded by a wrap-around terrace with access points through the library, living, and dining rooms. Its city and river views can be enjoyed from the two dining areas that are perfect for entertaining. 

All of the bedrooms are located on the lower level and three of them have en-suite bathrooms. The primary suite inhabits a corner that overlooks the East River, and its accompanying bathroom features a double vanity, stone tiling, a standalone shower, and a wall-encompassing mirror. And since storage space is important in NYC, it’s worth mentioning that the penthouse has 12 closets throughout its expanse.
