You can't slide, dive, or lob on this court, unless you're looking to land the ultimate drop.
That's because it's located a few hundred feet up on a private terrace in Midtown, Manhattan.
The unit it belongs to sits above The Baccarat Hotel and Residences, features 4,200 square feet of space, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, the terrace, and...a pickleball court on that terrace.
This modest dwelling is currently on sale for a cool $28.9 million.
Let's take a closer look:
That outdoor shot of the court makes reveals some critical details.
It seems this court would actually be hell to play on. There's grouted tiles, making for an uneven play surface and surely some weird bounces.
The last thing I want when I'm playing outside on a multi-story building I payed millions for (you know, something I have experience with) is a weird bounce...things could get hairy real quick. See: the "drop" joke we made above ^.
In all seriousness, if the next owners wish to actually play up there, they'll need to put a barrier of some kind, which may just mess with the curated aesthetic a little bit.
But neighbors need not worry: there's already enough noise in Midtown to drown out the pickle-thwacks.
