New York (CNNMoney.com) - Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is saying adios to the Big Apple and selling his Fifth Avenue penthouse for almost $14 million.

Limbaugh bought the 10-room condo at 1049 Fifth Ave. in 1994 under the name of R H Trust, according to city property documents. The pad sprawls across nearly 5,000 square feet and two of its terraces overlook Central Park and its famous reservoir.

The pre-war property features a double living room; a wood-paneled library; four terraces; enormous baths; and a maid's room. But it's not for the faint of heart - or those afraid of a big renovation. The general appearance can be described as, well, ornate, with trompe l'oeil ceilings and mural-covered walls.

    Rush runs the media you know it and I know it, the real anchorman of America. Doing what liberals dream of but fail ever time. Megga Dittos.

    If it were nto for his neighbors, i would suggest burining it to the ground. Old folks have told me that is the only way to really get rid of vermin.

    This should be an easy sell for any of his millionaire fans that support him.

    Didn't he jump on the Obama is an Elitist bandwagon- but he is the one with the $14 million home. But all his supporters will say that he has earned his money– he did it by getting you all revived up about this Democrat/Republican nonsense. You should have been paying attention to those robbing the country treasury, otherwise know as waging war.

    All these talking heads get all the money, what do you get–another day of figuring out how to make end meet.

    I sure don't have $14 million. But who could stand living somewhere where that buffoon once resided? You probably would find Oxycontin hidden everywhere.

    How many pills does this equal?

    Is he moving closer to his drug dealer?

    I'm surprised 5000 square feet is big enough to house his ego.

    If I knew you had a crib in Manhattan Rush, I would've been kicked in your front door. I guess that's something you should keep under wraps since you live in liberal NYC. Rush probably has security to walk him down the block. He won't get cought dead in Brooklyn. They will hang him high.

    Am happy for him leaving New York. His move will surely keep him away from self destruction. New York got too much drugs for someone struggling to stay clean. I say run Rush. Come back South.

    so he can spend more time in a newly renovated house on Florida's SouthBeach with fawning gladiators and pink flamingos on the walls. It's becoming pretty clear: 4 marriages. Likes big fat wet cigars. Hates gays openly serving in the military. Likes manly macho men to "pall around with" and "pick up chicks". Yeah...probably married the V--- each time.
    Just put on the white loafers, pastel silk shirt with the buttons open to the navel, wear your favorite pink boa, get a bird cage, and get it over with. Have fun...

    Maybe the Republican Party can buy it and turn it into a temple to "The Great One".

    All I can say to Rush is GOOD LUCK IN FINDING ANY TAKERS!! In this recessionary economy, with sinking real estate market values, 14 million dollars in alot to ask for, especially in New York with its notoriously high taxes. I think that better deals can be had elsewhere. HEY RUSH, MAYBE DONALD TRUMP MAY BE INTERESTED IN YOUR OFFER!!

    If you look at the pictures on the Realtors' site, it is seriously tacky. Politics aside, Limbaugh has very poor interior design tastes. Everyone can agree on that one.
