The HBO exec's posh limestone manse boasts a newly renovated eat-in kitchen and this swanky solarium. Plepler originally bought the Upper East Side abode back in 2002 for $8.19 million, and tried to first unload it back in 2008 with a $18.5 million ask.

A look at the glam eat-in kitchen. The home totals 7,000 square feet and of course with so much space who wants to trudge up and down stairs? Luckily, there's a private elevator that can easily transport tired feet to each level of the grand home.

The wood-paneled library boasts 100-year-old pine panels and one of the seven wood-burning fireplaces in the gigantic spread. Plepler spent many years and countless dollars renovating the four-bedroom, 5.5-bath home.
