Michael Douglas Gets a New Neighbor with the Sale of This $8.6 Million Kenilworth Co-Op
Andrea Stern, daughter of real estate developer Leonard Stern, has just sold her ‘70s chic apartment in the Kenilworth for $8.575 million, according to city records. The new residents will not only be able to enjoy living in a home that looks like a pared down set for Behind the Candelabra; they’ll actually be able to call the made-for-TV movie’s star Michael Douglas, and his wife Catherine Zeta Jones, neighbors. But, as impressive as that sounds, we’re pretty sure the eight-room, corner apartment on the Gold Coast of Central Park West speaks for itself.
The renovated unit has a flexible layout with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. A generous eat-in kitchen with a breakfast room has a butler’s pantry and top-of-the-line appliances. There’s also a home office and plenty of closet space. Add to that 10-foot ceilings and beautiful beamed ceilings decorating the dining room. And let’s not forget about those Central Park views…because the adjoining living and dining rooms feature large, picturesque windows, displaying nearly 50 feet of the iconic park like artwork.
The Kenilworth is a historic French Second Empire-style building known for its distinctive entrance flanked by banded columns. The building was designed by Townsend, Steinle and Haskell and named for a castle built in 12th century England. With only three units on each of its 13 floors, the Kenilworth prides itself on offering the utmost in privacy and luxury. Residents of the co-op enjoy perks such as a common rooftop terrace, along with all the shops and restaurants the Upper West Side has to offer.
