Demi Moore made news this week when word got out that she would be putting her San Remo triplex up for sale for a whopping $75 million. While no listing or photos of the 7,000-square-foot 145 Central Park West space have surfaced (apparently Moore is quietly showing it), one of 6sqft’s reporters did some sleuthing and found these old black and whites from the Museum of the City of New York which pretty much meet the specs: of the two triplexes in San Remo today, one was made combining the only two-story unit in the building and the mechanical space above it. Moore and then hubby Bruce combined a two-story unit with the space above it…
Though we’re sure the decor has changed since the Spring of 1937 when it was occupied by Theodore C. Wiehe, with a little bit of imagination we bet you can fill in the gaps. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this blast from the past. And if you’ve got some money to spend, make Ms. Moore an offer. You’ll also be granted the record of “the person to have spent the most money on a co-op ever“. A win?
The San Remo was designed by preeminent New York architect Emery Roth and constructed back in 1930. The architect knew that this residential building would be meant for those who enjoy grandeur, and as such, the layouts of most of the Sam Remo’s 136 apartments are spacious – even by the neighborhood’s standards. Many of the units are more than 2,500-square-feet and some of the living rooms are as big as 620-square-feet. Ceilings range from 10- to 11-feet and lavish finishes are the norm. Moore’s apartment is situated at the top of the south tower and features 360-degree views of the city, including sweeping views of Central Park.
Since becoming a co-op in the 1970s, all the apartments have been outfitted with modern appliances and fixtures. The residence also includes the usual luxury amenities, such as a state-of-the-art health club, a doorman, a bike room, and a multi-purpose community room. Its location also puts it right next to Central Park, and all the top shops and restaurants of the Upper West Side.
Other claims to fame? This “Mansion in the Clouds” has over the years been home to countless celebrities including Donna Karan, Glenn Close, Tiger Woods, Steve Jobs, Bono, and Diane Keaton.
