According to the New York Times, Judy Sheindlin has listed her New York City penthouse for $9.5 million.

The reality TV star, best known as Judge Judy, and her husband, former New York Supreme Court Judge Jerry Sheindlin, paid $8.5 million for the duplex in 2013, shortly after selling their residence at The Sherry-Netherland hotel, according to real estate records.

"We've enjoyed this jewel of an apartment," Sheindlin told the Times in an email. "Time to simplify."

The penthouse has a semiprivate elevator opening into an entrance gallery featuring inlaid marble. The living room includes a wood-burning fireplace and large windows with views of the East River. The formal dining room features floor-to-ceiling French doors. the eat-in kitchen with green marble countertops and a wood-topped island is equipped with high-end stainless appliances.

The new owner can cozy up with a book beside the fireplace in the wood-paneled library, with built-in bookshelves. The primary suite downstairs features a seating area, ample closet space and built-in storage. Two additional bedrooms have their own bathrooms and the third has access to a hallway bath.

The $10,130 monthly maintenance fee will give the new owner access to all the building's amenities, including a 24/7 door attendant, resident manager, roof deck, gym, bike room and private storage space.
