This combined two-unit co-op in the architectural gem that is the Emery Roth-designed San Remo at 145 Central Park West (where Demi Moore’s former pad just hit the market for $50M), asking $25 million, has the Central Park and Manhattan skyline views you’d expect from the iconic building’s north tower. Inside, the over-5,500-square-foot corner residence is just as impressive, with an architect-led renovation and interiors by renowned designer Bunny Williams that has preserved the home’s Art Deco character while sparing no expense on modern convenience. The 14-room home, currently owned by money manager Peter W. May and his wife, Leni May (h/t New York Times), is configured as three bedrooms and a library with an additional study and a media room.
A grand center gallery is framed by an exquisitely detailed ceiling and geometric parquet-tiled wood flooring. There is a powder room just off the gallery.
A vast corner living room has a gas fireplace and five setback casement windows. The space is surrounded with Central Park and city views.
Also off the gallery is an intimate wood-paneled library with built-in bookshelves. The home’s main kitchen has everything necessary for perfect entertaining, with a large wine refrigerator, a full bathroom, a dining island and a double oven and six-burner stove. You’ll also find a breakfast room, staff room and spectacular north-facing formal dining room with a coffered ceiling that leads to the apartment’s combined northwest wing through pocket doors. There is a full washer and dryer here as well.
The master suite features a large windowed walk-in closet/dressing room and full bath. Three tall casement windows overlook the park.
A second bedroom suite is currently being used as a home office. The office suite, painted in crisp shades of grey and white, also has a full bath, walk-in closet and park views.
The northwest wing has an additional separate entrance via a second bank of elevators. Here you’ll find another bedroom or study with a full bath, sauna and second laundry room. Also here are a media room, home office, cedar closet and walk-in closet/dressing room. A full eat-in catering kitchen features the original St. Charles stainless steel cabinetry, and is used by the owners for entertaining.
The apartment also offers central air conditioning throughout and is wired for sound. Amenities at the San Remo include a state-of-the-art fitness center, recreational area, private garden for residents and a bike room. In addition to Demi Moore, celebrity residents include Bono–who bought his apartment from Steve Jobs–and former residents like Rita Hayworth, Mary Tyler Moore, Dustin Hoffman, Diane Keaton and Tiger Woods.
