Back in 2009, Dick Cavett paid $4.2 million for an amazingly preserved unit at the historic Central Park West co-op the Kenilworth. But all of this old-world charm wasn’t enough to keep the talk-show host and comedian, as the three-bedroom home, which the listing describes as “fit for Royals,” has just hit the market for $5,995,000. A lucky buyer will get to enjoy a slew of pre-war details, including leaded glass windows and doors, the original oak-paneled dining room, floor-to-ceiling custom built-ins, decorative fireplaces, and carved woodwork and moldings.
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.
