Inside luxurious mansions and apartments that were used as Roy family’s homes in HBO’s Succession

The Roy Family in HBO’s Succession owns a huge array of properties – from luxury New York City apartments to lavish summer houses in the Hamptons, and FEMAIL has uncovered all of the real homes that they used to film the hit show – including a mansion that was once owned by Henry Ford’s grandson and an apartment in the iconic Woolworth Building.

The series follows billionaire Logan Roy – who is the head of media conglomerate Waystar Royco – and his three sons, as they fight over who will soon take control of the company. 

The family certainly lives a glamorous lifestyle – taking private helicopter rides whenever they please and jetting off on vacations all the time – which is why it’s no surprise that their homes are just as magnificent as their way of life.

The characters live in a range of breathtaking condos, mansions, and villas across New York state. Ranging from a $23 million apartment in Manhattan to a $105 million manor in the Hamptons, FEMAIL has revealed all of the properties that posed as the various backdrops for the Roy family throughout season three of the drama. 

Some of the homes are currently on the market, so you can live like a Roy yourself – if you’re willing to cough up millions of dollars, that is. 

HBO series Succession has become one of television’s biggest hits in recent years, documenting the scandalous lives of the fictional – and very wealthy – Roy family and the inner workings of their media company Waystar Royco 

Much of the show takes place in New York City, where the family members are seen residing in several lavish properties. The cast also films in several prime pieces of real estate further afield, including in Italy and the Hamptons (pictured) 

RAVA ROY’S APARTMENT

In the show, Kendall Roy (played by Jeremy Strong) spends much of his time at his ex-wife Rava Roy’s (played by Natalie Gold) lush New York City apartment. It turns out, they filmed those scenes at Pavilion A in the iconic Woolworth building in Tribeca. 

The duplex property is located on the 29th floor of 2 Park Place. The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom condo spans more than 6,700-square-feet.

It boasts 22-foot ceilings, six skylights, two powder rooms, a 52-foot living room, and a 2,800-square-foot private outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of downtown.

The kitchen includes custom-made cabinetry by DADA – the luxury Italian furniture giant – as well as marble countertops, a wine fridge, and two dishwashers.

Residents of the building have access to many amenities, including a spa with a sauna and hot tub, a private swimming pool, a fitness studio, a wine cellar, and a tasting room. 

The building also features a residential lobby that has been fully restored from retail mogul Frank W. Woolworth’s private office, where he cemented his legacy in the Big Apple.  

Woolworth’s building, nicknamed ‘The Cathedral of Commerce,’ housed a Woolworth’s in the first one-and-a-half floors.

LOGAN ROY’S APARTMENT

As for Logan Roy (played by Brian Cox), and his third wife, Marcia ‘Marcy’ Roy’s (played by Hiam Abbass) home, they live in a spacious Fifth Avenue townhouse located opposite the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

It turns out, that apartment isn’t actually real, but instead, it was a set created in Silvercup Studios. However, scenes that take place in the lobby of the townhouse were filmed in the American Irish Historical Society at 991 Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Production designer Stephen Carter told Architectural Digest that when designing the apartment, he was inspired by the homes of Edgar Bronfman and Charles Bronfman.

‘I was influenced by the Fifth Avenue apartments of Edgar Bronfman and Charles Bronfman as they were on the same stretch of street where Logan’s apartment would be, particularly the simple muted color scheme from Charles’s apartment,’ he explained.

‘Edgar Senior’s apartment has the scale, views, and layout, but the color palette was pretty shocking to the eye.’

‘The color palette was very clean and almost a bleached monotone of wealth. I didn’t feel these were very tactile people, comfort-wise, and they wanted everything around them to be visually elegant.’ 

Decorator George DeTitta Jr. added that when decorating the apartment, they ‘didn’t want to draw overt attention to the family’s wealth.’

‘We didn’t want to draw overt attention to the family’s wealth with the decoration of the show, instead selecting a mix of pieces, both contemporary and antique, to tell the story of their elevated place in society more subtly,’ he told Set Decorators. 

ROY FAMILY’S VACATION HOME

As do many wealthy people who live in the city, the Roy family have a vacation home in the glamorous beach-front neighborhood of the Hamptons, which they spend much of their time in. These scenes were filmed at the Henry Ford II’s estate, which recently sold for $105 million.

The house, which is located at 90 Jule Pond Drive in Long Island, New York, is complete with 42-aces of land, a quarter mile of ocean frontage, access to three ponds, a meditation garden, and more.

The luxurious mansion was originally priced at $175 million when it was listed in 2017, and later reduced to $145 million before finally selling for $105 million this month. 

The Hamptons has long-been a summer enclave for some of New York’s wealthiest residents, and many celebrities have even purchased homes of their own there – including Jimmy Buffett, Martha Stewart, Jon Bon Jovi, Paul Simon, Jerry Seinfeld, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downy Jr., Sarah Jessica Parker, and Anderson Cooper.

The house, which sits on Jule Pond, boasts nearly a quarter mile of Atlantic Ocean frontage – making it the largest ocean frontage in the Hamptons – and has access to three ponds and Mecox Bay. It has a gated entranceway and a long, tree-lined driveway. 

It was built in the early 1960s but underwent a major renovation in 2008. However, they kept many of the home’s original details such as distinctive ceiling moldings, traditional chandeliers, Italian marble fireplaces, French parquet floors, and antique bathroom fixtures. 

The 20,000-square-foot house has 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, two master suites, a chef’s kitchen, a games room, a library, multiple reception rooms, and a 48-foot living room. There is also an entire wing of the house designed for staff members to live in, complete with its own entrance. 

Outside, it boasts a spa, a greenhouse, an outdoor kitchen, an outdoor shower, tennis courts, a basketball court, a guest house, a six-car garage, meditation gardens, and a 20-foot, heated, gunite pool – a concrete blend of sand, cement, and water that’s known for it’s long-lasting strength. 

It was sold by a portfolio manager named Brenda Earl, who had purchased the house in 2002 for $21.75 million from Italian financier Carlo Traglio. And even though she has spent millions on its refurbishment, she has still earned a big profit on the sale.

The buyer is an offshore company based in the Cayman Islands, which is believed to be connected to Canadian swimmer Richard Funk’s family, Dirt has reported. The sale has been classified as the second largest sale in Long Island. 

The property was once part of a 235-acre estate owned by famous car-maker Henry Ford’s grandson. After he divorced from his wife, Anne McDonnell, she took control of the land and decided to break it up and sell it piece by piece. In 1975, she sold this part of the land for $1.8 million.  

JOSH AARONSON’S HOME 

In the fourth episode of season three, Kendall and Logan went to visit one of their biggest investors, Josh Aaronson (played by Adrien Brody) at his mansion – which is located on a private island. It turns out, the home that they filmed these scenes in isn’t actually located on a private island, in fact, it’s also located in the Hamptons.

Sitting at 115 Beach Lane in Wainscott, New York, the 11,000-square-foot house has six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. It was designed by Barnes Coy Architects and has 2-acres of land.  

Floor-to-ceiling tempered glass windows, 22-foot-tall ceilings, a steam room (complete with a sauna), a recreational room, a gym, a floating staircase, an elevator, and a golf simulator can also be found in the house.

Outside, there are several seaside decks, an infinity pool, an outdoor kitchen, a dining table, and a seaside living room.

The current owners initially purchased the home in 2015 for $16.5 million. They listed it for $52 million earlier this year, but took it off the market a few months later. 

Stephen told Architectural Digest that when looking for a place to portray Josh’s mansion, he felt it was important to find a home that appeared isolated so that it would seem like it was on a private island, and this one was perfect.

‘If you know that Hamptons coast, you know that it’s built up within an inch of its life,’ he said. ‘One of the nice things about this property is that once you get out onto the pool deck, you sense that there might not be too many other buildings close by.’

Floor-to-ceiling tempered glass windows, 22-foot-tall ceilings, a steam room (complete with a sauna), a recreational room, a gym, a floating staircase, an elevator, and a golf simulator can also be found in the house. It is pictured in HBO's Succession

He said filming took place over one day, and that they had to make minimal changes to the décor, which includes a white sectional sofa, and a dining area with six leather chairs. 

‘You’ve got these great views out toward the beach. You have great light coming in. One of the things we try to do on the show is to create [the suggestion of] wealth through an abundance of space, light, and [ceiling] height in every situation,’ he continued.

‘You want to feel that these people don’t have the creative wherewithal to connect personally to the things in their lives. They’re not out combing flea markets looking for the perfect midcentury piece. They’re hiring decorators.’

ROY FAMILY’S ITALIAN HOLIDAY HOME

In the last two episodes of season three, the Roy family jetted off to Italy for vacation. They rented out a glamorous home in Tuscany, and they filmed the scenes at a 17th century villa, called Villa Centinale.

The villa was built in 1680 and designed by the late architect Carlo Fontana. It is now owned by a man named Edward Lambton, who rents it out as a vacation home from $30,742.

Tucked into a wooded hillside in Italy, it has 13 bedrooms across five floors, and many of the rooms contain beautiful paintings and murals on the walls and ceilings. 

The property also boasts two swimming pools, two kitchens, a game room, a gym, and tennis courts. To make things even better, there are staff onsite at all times – including a house manager, a chef, maids, and a porter.
