A renovated duplex maisonette in the same building Barbara Walters once called home has been struggling on the market since it was listed earlier this year. Now, after eight months and a few price drops, the price has landed at $12.5 million. The opulent space has four bedrooms, parquet de Versailles floors, and imported French First Empire fireplaces, all just steps from the iconic Central Park.
The main level of this opulent pad features 60 feet of entertainment space in the form a dining room, a music room, and a living room, all separated by columns. The living room has high, coffered ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. The neighboring Versailles music room features beveled mirrored walls, and the formal dining room has a decorative fireplace. Off the living room, an oak-paneled study has French doors leading to a balcony overlooking a patio garden.
On the opposite side of the main level, three bedrooms create the sleeping quarters, including a master with marble his and her bathrooms and a dressing room. The lower level of the home has a media room, eat-in chef’s kitchen, and hidden staff room with a separate entrance.
