It is not every day that I get to do a celebrity home staging. And this one sat for a while. Luxury Listings NYC announced last week that Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow’s UES penthouse is finally under contract. They were asking a lot of money for the home thanks to its provenance. It is a beautiful glass penthouse apartment with 18′ ceilings, a really fun spiral glass staircase and possibly the best views of the East River in town!
The apartment was built in 1961, with Frank allegedly “very active in the penthouse design.” With 3,200 sq. ft, there are 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. There is an additional 2,000 sq. ft of terrace space. More folklore reports that Sammy Davis, Jr “enjoyed tossing champagne glasses down on FDR Drive from the apartment’s terraces.” Andy Warhol was a frequent guest at splashy rat-pack parties and called the co-op “the glittering grotto.”
President John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe are also reported guests.
