This expansive Upper West Side home is far larger than the classic six.
The second wife of billionaire George Soros, historian Susan Weber, is once more attempting to lighten her home-sized co-operative unit.
After failing to sell her palatial penthouse greater than a decade ago, in 2012, she re-listed the stunning Central Park West, Crain was the primary to report. Weber – who founded and is now director of the Bard College alumni center on 86th Street – paid $25 million for the 12-room pre-war mansion in 2006 and was attempting to get $50 million for it on its first listing. According to Crain’s, this high auction price was then lowered to $32.5 million before disappearing from the market. Now, the seven-bath, five-bedroom model is back for $27.5 million.
“It’s really hard to search out apartments which might be large enough, with five to 6 bedrooms,” said Lisa K. Lippman, representative of Brown Harris Stevens, a representative of a mansion-sized cooperative. “It’s also an apartment within the northeast corner and cleans up the Dakota,” she added, noting that the unit has “amazing views from a lot of the rooms.”
From the 104-foot-long terrace, Central Park stretches to the horizon.
In addition to six,000 square feet of indoor space, the Nineteenth-floor property at 115 Central Park West – generally known as Majestic – also has 900 square feet of out of doors space. “You can get a few of that indoor and outdoor living from an open kitchen that you will never get in a pre-war constructing,” added Lippman.
Other amenities include a personal elevator entrance, two dishwashers, a wet bar and a ‘front room size library’, as list describes. The main bedroom is large and the suite also has an office, separate dressing rooms and “absolutely the most lavish master bathroom”. The space is admittedly huge with an enormous custom made bathtub, double marble vanity and steam shower. The basic apartment also has a separate terrace on the east side.
Other bedrooms, social rooms and a laundry room are positioned in a separate wing of the unit.
