You can see the curvature of the Earth from all the way up in the US's most expensive and dreamy property.

The three-storey apartment from 129th to 131st floors in Central Park Tower on 'Billionaire's Row' in Manhattan is spread over 17,500 square feet, but it's the 360 degree view which really takes your breath away.

Located at the very top of the residential building – which is one of the world's tallest, coming in at a whopping 1,400 feet above sea level – you can see the Earth's curvature and a crystal clear view of the rest of New York.

However, as well as being a penthouse in one of the world's tallest residential buildings, the property hits new heights as the US's most expensive, totalling an eye-watering £220 million ($250 million).

Prepare to gawp:

The expansive property has three powder rooms and eight bathrooms, as well as seven bedrooms to lounge and enjoy the breathtaking view in.

As if that wasn't enough space already, the penthouse also has a ballroom measuring 2,000 square feet.

If you've had enough of dancing or staring out the windows, the building boasts a wine and cigar lounge, a conference room, a spa, gym, games room, squash court, cinema room, private garden and not just one but two pools; the indoor measuring 62 feet and outdoor 60 feet.

And the restaurant? Not only is it private, but it also has Michelin-star chefs, so you'll be getting some of the best food you've ever tasted.

Despite the jaw-drop worthy price tag, real estate agent Ryan Serhant from 'Sell It Like Serhant' and 'Million Dollar Listing New York' thinks the value of the property is reasonable.

"I know it sounds crazy, bur relatively speaking, it’s priced at a great value on a per-square-foot basis. It’s just a very, very big apartment with lots of amenities," he told CNBC.

Alas, despite its 'great value' the penthouse's list of potential buyers is limited to the mega rich.

"The purchaser of this apartment is someone who is looking to diversify their assets. It’s someone who probably owns expensive art, probably has an expensive car collection and other things, and they want the best of the best," Serhant noted.

Well, many of us probably wish for the best of the best, but unless we end up with Elon Musk's sort of money, our chances at acquiring the most expensive property in the US are near impossible.

However, while the price may seem like pennies to the likes of Jeff Bezos and has everything you could ever dream of inside it, as well as the most breathtaking view outside, the penthouse may not be quite that easy to shift.

In recent months, the sales of luxury properties in Manhattan have dropped significantly.

Manhattan luxury broker, Donna Olshan, views the penthouse as 'a fantasy price'.

A 'fantasy price' to millionaires, and simply a pure 'fantasy' to most of us.

As if the one person interested doesn't have enough money already, Serhant said he offered to fly them in specially to see the property.

Oh, how the rich live.
