That thump you heard? The sound of this 33rd-floor Huntingdon penthouse once owned by Ken and Linda Lay dropping another million dollars. Over the weekend the asking price for the 12,827-sq.-ft. castle in the air fell to $6.99 million. Enron founder Ken Lay died in 2006, shortly after being convicted of 10 counts of securities fraud and related charges. His widow first put this little pied-à-terre at 2121 Kirby Dr. on the market in the fall of 2009, for $12.8 million. By the beginning of this year, it had floated down to $8,875,000.
The condo’s interior was designed by Houston architect L. Barry Davidson in 1999, though the Lays had bought their future sky palace 4 years earlier. Inside the 4-bedroom unit: a total of 9 bathrooms and 6 elevators. The unit also comes with 10 garage parking spaces — and a $10,182 monthly maintenance fee.
