Madonna Lists Upper West Side Duplex for $23.5M
The Material Girl is shedding some of her possessions.
Madonna is looking to divest herself of the 6,000-square-foot duplex with front-row views of Central Park that she has owned for just under 20 years, according to the NY Post. The asking price is $23.5 million.
What started as a single apartment purchase after her 1985 marriage to actor Sean Penn has morphed into a 6-bedroom, 8-bathroom duplex that has combined three separate units over the 5th and 6th floors of Harperley Hall — a 1907 brick fortress at 64th Street in the Upper West Side of Manhattan with views of Central Park South and Fifth Avenue.
The apartment was featured in a 2007 edition of Architectural Digest, including commentary from Madonna’s interior designer brother Christopher G. Ciccone, the man in charge of decorating what was then called the pop diva’s “low-key” New York hideout.
But Madonna has since moved on … in many ways.
According to the New York Daily News, Madonna is spending her New York minutes in the $32 million Georgian townhouse she purchased in 2009.
Considering that she added a rooftop deck and gym to the 57-foot-wide townhouse that is a mere 12,000 square feet, there really isn’t any need for Madonna to hold onto her Harperley House co-op.
Listed by Brown Harris Stevens agent Arabella Greene Buckworth, Madonna’s Upper West Side home offers a stunning master bedroom suite with “endless closet space,” five wood-burning fireplaces, an elegant formal dining room overlooking the park and an exquisitely appointed chef’s eat-in kitchen with windowed library/dining room. Central air conditioning, state-of-the-art sound and humidifier systems, 10-foot ceilings and gleaming oak floors can be found throughout.
