If you’ve got an extra eight-plus million bucks to spare, you too can live like a rock star! U2 bassist Adam Clayton has put his New York City pad on the market for $8.695 million and address doesn’t get much better – it’s in the gorgeous El Dorado building on Central Park West.

The place has three bedrooms, four baths and every room is renovated to perfection, including the stunning chef’s kitchen. Clayton purchased two apartments in the building where bandmate Bono also used to live and combined them into one gorgeous, sprawling place with a 38 foot entrance gallery and Central Park Views.

Clayton stands to make a tidy profit on his real estate investment.  He bought the first apartment back in 1993 for $620,000 and the second place a year later for $430,000.  Merging the two cost a few pennies for sure, but he’s profit will still range in the healthy seven figure range.

No word on whether Adam plans on buying another NYC crash pad. If you want to gawk at the place he’s saying bye-bye to, click here.
