Grammy-winning opera star Renee Fleming has put her sprawling four-bedroom Upper West Side penthouse on the market; the 3,000-square-foot co-op at 200 West 86th Street, asking $6.895 million, is a diva-worthy pad, the result of combining two large units. In addition to the penthouse perk of river and city views, the apartment is a veritable sky garden, wrapped on three sides by landscaped terraces.
A sleek and sophisticated sunken living room has a wood-burning fireplace and sliding glass doors leading to one of the home’s many gorgeous outdoor spaces. A pristine corner kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances including a wine fridge and extra beverage drawers. The kitchen opens to a formal dining room with city views and greenhouse windows.
The master wing includes a super-sized sunny bedroom, another wood-burning fireplace and a luxurious bath. We can only imagine that an opera diva needs plenty of space for fabulous finery, hence the windowed dressing room with endless closet space. This side of the apartment has the added bonus of a separate office suite (or fifth bedroom) with its own entrance and terrace.
The home’s opposite wing contains three additional bedrooms and two baths. Surrounding the rooms on three sides are those rare and coveted landscaped terraces, each part with its own unique features.
The apartment also offers central A/C, a washer/dryer and a private elevator landing. The pet-friendly, Art Deco co-op building offers a doorman, a concierge, a gym, a landscaped roof deck, a children’s playroom, and laundry, bike, and storage rooms.
