Late author Tom Clancy’s 12,000-square-foot penthouse in Baltimore’s Ritz-Carlton Residences just hit the market for $12 million.
Shawn Breck, of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, told the Wall Street Journal that the home is Baltimore’s priciest listing. But the asking price of the four-unit penthouse is actually less than the spy novelist paid for his initial three units six years ago.
Clancy, who died in 2013, moved into the Ritz in 2009, when he bought three units for $12.6 million. A year later, he and his wife, Alexandra, bought three more units for a reported $4 million.While two of the six units are being rented out and are not part of the sale, the four units that make up the penthouse are asking a lower price than Clancy paid for the initial three six years ago.

The combined four-unit penthouse overlooks Baltimore’s beautiful Inner Harbor.
Here’s what that $12 million view looks like.
Many of the walls have been knocked away, resulting in an open, dreamlike floor plan.
Clancy owned the apartment from 2009 until his death in 2013. He died at age 66.
Much of the space appears to have been remodeled since Clancy lived here.
It’s basically a blank slate for the new owners.
There are two offices and three private elevators that lead up to the residence.
Clancy could have watched the films adaptations of his novels — such as “The Hunt for Red October” and “Patriot Games” — in this sleek home theater room.
A total of five spacious bedrooms fill the penthouse.
The bathroom looks more like a spa, complete with a sit-down marble shower.
There’s plenty of outdoor space as well, with six terraces overlooking the city where Clancy lived and died.
The apartment also includes 700 square feet of private gym space.
Residents enjoy full use of the complex’s indoor pool, spa, and sauna.
The penthouse comes with three parking spaces, and the Ritz offers valet parking.
