Celebrity Cribs: Mo’ Money For Mama Tina… Beyonce’s Mom Sells Her Manhattan Apartment For $5.6 Milli

- By Bossip Staff

It sure pays to be BeyBey’s mommy!Mama Tina just sold the apartment she’s owned at One Beacon Court building in Midtown Manhattan since May 2005.

Before we show you the lay of the land you’ve got to read the description of the place that was posted at The Real Estalker clowning Mama Tina’s taste in home decor. Let’s just say, they’re not running out to purchase House of Dereon’s home collection anytime soon:

It’s currently in contract to be sold with the last asking price set at $5,600,000. Property records show she paid $2,927,468 for the 42nd floor condo crib in the deluxe mixed-use tower that includes monthly maintenance of $2,522 plus another $1,436 in real estate taxes.

Listing information reveals the apartment is 1,729 square feet and contains two split bedrooms–on on either side of the apartment for maximum privacy, each with private facility, plus a half bath for guests.

An entire wall of floor-to-ceiling glass in the 27-foot long living room frames the exact sort of city and park view folks with the means to do so will happily pay many millions. The floors are a rich chocolate brown, the ceilings pleasantly high, the walls a sandy beige and the furniture, besides the glass water fall coffee table and the fab 1940s era chairs covered in tur-qwahze (p)leather near the window are beyond atrocious. The two-toned faux suede sofa? OMG. No. We want to like the orange chair because orange is Your Mama’s favorite color but we just can’t get past the Mickey Mouse ears shape of the thing.

The dark wood floors extend into both of the bedrooms that each have panoramic city and park views and marble bathrooms. The master has not just one but two good-sized walk in closets and a gawd-awful suite of silver-leafed furniture that we’d say has an Art Nouveau/Gaudi-esque quality iffin it weren’t so, well, gaudy. The over-sized tufted leather –headboard in the guest room is a zillion times better but the swagged drapery–and that there is what we call drapery, hunties, and not curtains–invokes painful spasms of decorative disharmony and discord.

The (not surprisingly) high monthly maintenance fees at One Beacon Court provide its affluent residents and guests white glove service with 24-7 doorman and concierge, valet parking, fitness facility, party room and a play room for children where we’d bet our long-bodied b*tches y’all would be far more likely to find a Nigerian nanny or French au pair than an actual parent.

Pure comedy!

    I’m sorry, but am I missing something? The apartment is beautiful. Everyone has their own style. I like her minimal style. It’s modern..ok and? What’s wrong with that? People are so rude. I just want to know how many people can say their 60 year old mom has a place in Manhattan, with that view, and that nice. Yup, I didn’t think so.
