Sure, a piano is always a nice touch, especially in a classic Central Park South condo like this. But when that piano belonged to none other than the late David Bowie, that certainly changes things. First spotted by the Post, the Essex House apartment that he and wife Iman lived in from 1992 to 2002 (before moving to Soho, where she still lives) has hit the market for $6,495,000, which includes Bowie’s Yamaha.
Enter through a limestone entry foyer that leads to the 28-foot-wide living room, complete with large picture windows providing views of Central Park and shelves hidden behind movable walls. It’s adjacent to a walnut-paneled office.
In the pass-through kitchen you’ll find top-of-the-line appliances, polished granite counters, and custom cabinetry.
Both bedrooms are master-sized and have custom en-suite baths, but the formal master has a separate paneled dressing area that was custom built for Iman. The master bathroom panic room that Bowie created, fortunately or unfortunately, has been removed.
