(NEW YORK, NEW YORK)— Only two years after an anonymous buyer purchased the unit from actress Demi Moore, one of the penthouses at the iconic San Remo is back on the market, according to The New York Post.
Moore had a notoriously hard time selling the apartment two years ago, listing it for a whopping $75 million. The sale made headlines when she finally managed to sell it at a $45 million, a $30 million price cut, nearly four years after it was originally listed. It was still the highest sale price on recordfor the building. It is unclear why the owner is looking to sell now. Although the post speculates that the anonymous owner is attempting to “flip” the unit, it is listed at only a $5 million increase from its 2017 sale price, with no apparent renovations.
The triplex penthouse occupies the 26th, 27th, and 28thfloors of the historic San Remo building, an iconic, upscale beaux arts landmark on Central Park West. Many familiar with the Upper West Side will recognize the building for its distinctive two towers, acting as a North Star (West star?) marking 74thstreet, for anyone strolling through Central Park. The penthouse gem has passed through many famous hands, from Robert Stigwood, manager of the Bee Gees, and then to Moore and her former husband, Bruce Willis. The penthouse in the opposite tower of the San Remo was sold by Steve Jobs to Bono, of U2 fame, who still occupies the unit today, according to The Wall Street Journal.
According to the StreetEasy listing, the 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom 8,000 square foot apartment features an additional 1,500 square feet of wrap-around terraces, with stunning full views of Central Park from the unit’s North, South, and East facing exposures, and distant views of the Hudson River on the West. Special amenities include private elevator access and in-unit laundry (mostly for convenience of the staff—there are maids quarters on each floor).
Roger J. Erickson of Douglas Elliman has the listing.
