A Colorful and Refined Apartment in NYC’s Famed San Remo Building Asks $7.5M

Within the renowned San Remo building on Central Park West, which actresses Demi Moore and Diane Keaton, along with architect Cesar Pelli have called home, this eighth-floor listing is an exuberant place to settle into. Asking $7.5 million, the price certainly sets the bar high for a discerning buyer. But, for those who can afford it, what’s not to like about the finest finishes framing spectacular views of Central Park?

Although the North and South towers are what distinguish the iconic Renaissance Revival structure, perhaps the most exciting features are just how unique each unit can be. While Demi Moore’s former penthouse incorporated rich wood accents all throughout, unit 8A infuses each room with stunning hues while always keeping it sophisticated. Plum, ivory, burnt orange, chartreuse; every space is a surprise.

The front of the apartment holds all the public areas for entertaining, shielding the three bedrooms and three bathrooms for total privacy and relaxation. The primary suite sits in the back corner, illuminated by large windows on both walls. This owner’s sanctuary opens up to a dressing room complete with original stained glass, plus a spacious bathroom outfitted in marble. Glamorous, right?

But, let’s get back to the basics. What makes the San Remo building so sought-after in general? Built by architect Emery Roth in 1930, the co-op holds a special Manhattan history all while its many units have been artfully renovated. Residents of the building can enjoy an around-the-clock doorman and concierge service, a contemporary fitness center, and a landscaped courtyard garden. Of course, the courtyard can’t quite hold a candle to Central Park just steps away.
