Iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz has put her home at 888 Central Park West on the market for $8.6m.
Leibovitz purchased her Upper West Side duplex in The Brentmore co-op in 2014 for $11.24m, and nine years later, it’s ‘priced to sell’, listing agent Deborah Kern of the Corcoran Group told the New York Times.
The Brentmore was designed by Schwartz & Gross in 1910 and was converted into a co-op in 1959, containing 28 units across 12 floors. It’s had a number of famous celebrity residents in past years, including Robert DeNiro, Paul Simon, and Sting. Leibovitz’s unit spans two levels and retains its pre-war features, such as inlaid hardwood floors, decorative mouldings, high ceilings and a carved wooden staircase.
A light-filled gallery entrance leads to a 32-ft-long living room with views over Central Park abutted by a formal dining room. Upstairs are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, and the dine-in kitchen has just had an upgrade.
The pet-friendly building has a concierge, gym and private storage space, and the monthly maintenance fees are $10,307. Leibovitz also owns a home in the West Village and a family home in Rhinebeck, NY.
