Over the last ten years, in addition to acting, writing and producing, he has been buying, restyling and reselling some fabulous California homes. His most recent project to come to market is this 40th-floor luxury apartment in the celebrity-approved, paparazzi-proof 42-story Century condominium.

The Glamorous Century Building
Perry purchased the apartment, which encompasses the entire 40th floor of the building, right after selling another stunning home in L.A.’s Hollywood Hills Bird Streets in 2017. After bringing in his team, including architect Scott Joyce and interior designer LM Paganoe, Matthew Perry put this prime piece of Hollywood celebrity real estate on the market at $35 million.
Robert A. M. Stern Architects designed Century in 2009. The upscale building counts Candy Spelling, widow of filmmaker Aaron Spelling, Paula Abdul, Elizabeth Berkley and Rihanna among its residents. Film industry elites, CEO’s and celebrity chefs also call Century home.
The building rises above four acres of lush private gardens. A LEED Silver certified building, it provides residents with a 75-foot-long swimming pool, screening room, yoga and Pilates studios, and a wine-storage facility. In 2017, Matthew Perry bought the entire 40th floor.

A Dramatic Luxury Apartment
Perry’s 40th-floor luxury apartment measures in at 9,318 square feet. Indeed, with ceiling-to-floor windows, its views over Los Angeles are visually stunning in daylight and sparkling with lights at night. Overall, there are four bedrooms and eight baths. Moreover, every room is generously sized and dramatic.
The living room features two fireplaces. Multiple living areas in the master suite make it more like a private retreat. The chef’s kitchen has island seating, a table for casual dining as well as a separate dining room. Likewise, the four terraces are perfect for entertaining and dining. A game room and home theater round out the amenities.
Matthew Perry is best known for his role as Chandler Bing in the mega-hit sitcom Friends, where he made $1 million per episode. Since that success, the celebrity has continued to act in television, film and on stage. His most recent project is a two-part miniseries starring as Ted Kennedy in a Reelz production of The Kennedys: After Camelot.
Having resided in New York for the last year, Matthew is selling his 40th-floor luxury apartment in the celebrity-laden Century condominium in Los Angeles. Priced at $36 million, the listing agents are Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen of Compass Realty, Los Angeles.
