Somewhere in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City is a homeowner who’s itching to get an $85 million condo off of his hands. So much so, that he’s willing to throw in complimentary seats for two on an upcoming Virgin Galactic space flight—a gift that retails at $250,000.

In addition to the experience of a lifetime, he’s also throwing in two Rolls Royce Phantoms—hardtop and convertible—a Lamborghini Aventador roadster, courtside season tickets to the Brooklyn Nets ($250,000), a 75-foot yacht ($1 million) with five years of docking fees on the Hudson, a summer stay in a Hamptons mansion (rents for $350,000 a season), and one year of services from a live-in butler and a private chef. If that wasn’t enough to reel in a potential buyer, the list of mega incentives wraps with one year of complimentary weekly dinners for two at Daniel Boulud’s 65th Street flagship.

For the average person this may seem a bit extreme, however, property owner Daniel Neiditch told the New York Post he’s not just selling a piece of real estate, he’s selling a lifestyle. “Someone not from New York can [move here and] have a New Yorker’s lifestyle and point of view. In a way, I’m offering my lifestyle. I’m offering a way for a foreigner to jump right in.” He adds, “It’s not that I am selling stuff that I don’t want. It’s all stuff that I thought created a nice package.”

The property has been on the market for five years, and though it comes with many lovely perks, it comes with a bit of baggage as well: 13 tenants. The vivacious penthouse property is currently broken up into 13 smaller units occupied by month-to-month renters. The new owner will have to complete the necessary renovations to convert it into a single-family home, but there’s a $2 million renovation budget included with purchase.
