Director Ron Howard lists Central Park West co-op in the Eldorado for $12.5M

March 29, 2017

For $12.5 million, you can live in Oscar-winning director Ron Howard’s classic Upper West Side co-op. He and wife Cheryl told the Wall Street Journal that they decided to list the three-bedroom spread at the iconic Eldorado–which they bought in 2004 for $5.575 million–to move farther downtown, closer to Howard’s editing and post-production facilities. Not only does the home occupy the 26th floor of the Art Deco building’s north tower, but it has a private elevator landing, 50 feet of direct Central Park frontage, and a flexible layout perfect for entertaining that the Howards implemented as part of a complete renovation.

The elevator landing leads to a wood-paneled entry foyer, which then opens to the formal dining room.

The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and is connected to a bright library with plenty of built-in shelving (check out the Emmy on the desk–Howard has won two, for his work on “A Beautiful Mind” and “Inferno”).

In the sleek kitchen you’ll find stainless steel countertops, custom cabinetry with loads of storage, two dishwashers, two fridges, and a wine fridge.

The corner master suite has an abundance of closet space and an en-suite bathroom with heated floors.

In addition to claiming Ron Howard as the former owner of your apartment, whomever picks up the pad will also be neighbors with Meredith Viera. Past residents of the celeb-favorite include Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Moby, and Bono.

Ron and Cheryl also may have decided to move since their children are grown and they travel frequently to LA, reasons they cited for selling their $27.5 million lakeside estate in the NYC suburbs a few years back.
