David Bowie’s Former NYC Condo Is For Sale With A Surprise For The Buyer

Bowie’s apartment

 

The luxury real estate agency Corcoran has announced that David Bowie’s former New York apartment was now for sale for $6,495,000.

The rocker, his wife the top model Iman and their daughter Lexi born in 2000 lived in that apartment from 1992 till 2002, before they moved in the district of Soho, where David Bowie died on January 10th, 2016.

The real property is located on the 9th floor of a 42-story Art Deco building built in 1930 on Central Park South, the Essex House building, which is immediately recognizable by its original red neon rooftop sign. The address of the building is 160 Central Park South, between Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue) and Seventh Avenue. For the New Yorkers, this district is considered as one of the richer and the most luxurious of Big Apple, situated a few steps away from famous concert hall Carnegie Hall, Plaza Hotel, Fifth Avenue shopping, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Lincoln Center or Trump Tower.

The apartment is 1883 ft² wide and includes a renovated kitchen, two spacious bedrooms with dressing areas, three limestone and marble bathrooms, a walnut-paneled office and a panic room built by the star to rescue from an intrusion of some hysterical fans (remember: when John Lennon was killed in 1980, he was living next door, in the Dakota building on Central Park West). The flat also benefits from a breathtaking view on the mythical Central Park and the city skyline.

According to pictures published on the Corcoran website, I have to say that the decor seems to be far away from Bowie’s scenic, artistic and eccentric tastes. The furniture reminds me more of a British grandmother’s house than a rock star condo in NYC! I don’t really know what I was expecting for the decor by the way, maybe more colorful walls, sparkling linens, flamboyant curtains and Warhol paintings on the walls?… I believe it would’ve been more convenient for the Thin White Duke. Nevermind the decoration, it belongs to the current owner…. But the place has kept a unique recollection of David Bowie’s passage there. Indeed the piano Yamaha of the star, kept intact in spite of owners’ changes since 2002, is included in the sale price. So the next buyer will inherit from a piano of the rock legend! For further information, David Bowie’s former London studio was for sale last year at the price of £24 millions. Who’s next?
