British rocker Sting and his wife Trudie Styler have listed their chic duplex at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West for $56 million (h/t WSJ). The couple purchased the 16th- and 17th-floor penthouse for about $27 million in 2008, and then enlisted architecture and interior design firm SheltonMindel to combine the units and transform them into a “unique home” that includes two custom sculptural spiral staircases and a double-sided spiral gas fireplace that was inspired by the Fibonacci Spiral. Last summer, the couple was in negotiations to buy another Stern condo at 220 Central Park South, one of NYC’s most expensive apartment buildings, and now that they “need more space to accommodate their growing family” the time may be ripe to do so.
In all, the residence boasts 5,400 square feet of interior space, four bedrooms, and 44 feet of frontage along Central Park. The aforementioned fireplace divides the living room from the sitting room, which has built-in bookshelves. Nearby, there’s a library with more shelves.
Across the living space sits a stylish and modern chef’s kitchen and one of the spiral staircases, which is adjacent to the dining room. The stark white kitchen is equipped with two refrigerators, four ovens, and three dishwashers.
On the second level, which can be accessed by a separate elevator entrance, there’s a luxurious master bedroom with breathtaking Central Park views. The ensuite bathroom includes his-and-her dressing rooms, opulent dual spa baths, and a sauna.
Here’s a look at the 400-square-foot terrace; thanks to heaters and a canopy it’s usable year-round.
In addition to those incredible views, residents at 15 Central Park West enjoy some spectacular luxuries such as a landscaped motor court, parking garage, 14,000-square-foot fitness center, skylit lap pool, sauna, screening room, private restaurant, wine rooms, a library, children’s playroom, outdoor terrace, and more.
