Jeweler Harry Winston’s Elegant Former Upper East Side Apartment Gets a Price Cut

After nearly a year on the market, the former residence of the “King of Diamonds” has a new price. Much like cutting diamonds, perhaps a price cut is just what the listing needed to shine brightest. First listed in May of 2021 asking $32.5 million, the full-floor Upper East Side former apartment of world-famous jeweler and diamond collector Harry Winston now seeks $31.25 million.

Still a staggering asking price, the home’s attributes, location, and legacy seem to match such a lofty number. From its Fifth Avenue address, the abode overlooks Central Park and counts six bedrooms and five bathrooms within a stunning 5,740 square feet of space. When Winston lived here, he threw parties with up to 100 people, experiences major entertainers can replicate today.

The current owner, who acquired the pre-war coop from Winston, uses the spread to display a large collection of American paintings and furniture—a table at which George Washington played cards sits within the walls.

Listed with Sotheby’s, where the current owner purchased most of her collection, the home itself is a worthy piece of art itself. Louise C. Belt handles the listing there, sharing it with John Burger of Brown Harris Stevens.
