An apartment in 15 Central Park West, one of New York’s most prestigious addresses, has hit the market for $23 million.
The fifth-floor unit has 3,486 square feet of living space and nearly 50 feet of Central Park frontage, according to the listing posted last week by Kyle Blackmon of Compass.
“[The] fifth floor allows for an elegant tree line view of the park,“ Mr. Blackmon said. ”It is the perfect sightline for the Thanksgiving Day Parade.”The home has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a formal dining room and a kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and a breakfast area. Throughout, it features high ceilings and oak herringbone hardwood floors, according to the listing.
Plus, a 365-square-foot studio with a full bathroom and a kitchenette can be purchased for an additional $1.65 million. Such studio suites “rarely come to market and are only available to be purchased by residents in the building,” Mr. Blackmon said.
The seller, a limited liability company, bought the apartment new for over $5.7 million in 2008, property records show.
Designed by starchitect Robert A.M. Stern in the Lincoln Square neighborhood in 2007, 15 Central Park West encompasses two buildings: The House, where this apartment is located, stands at 19-stories tall; and The Tower, which rises 37 stories.
The building’s amenities include a 24-hour doorman and a concierge, a motor court with reception staff, a fitness center with a 75-foot skylit indoor pool, a library, a conference room, a private theater, a billiards room, a children’s playroom and a private restaurant.
As one of the most expensive residential buildings in New York, its current or former celebrity residents include British singer Sting, fashion designer Elie Tahari, former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.
