Picture this: you are standing on the terrace of a penthouse in Manhattan overlooking a serene view of the Central Park and the spellbinding city. What would you be thinking while you are at such a breathtaking place? ‘How I wish I could live here’ is surely a thought that would cross your mind.
Here is singer Sting’s penthouse which is up for grabs. It is located at 15 Central Park West, one of the city’s much coveted buildings. At 5,417 square feet, the entry opens to a stunning circular staircase that looks more like a sculpture than functional access to an upper floor. It draws the eye upward to the 10-foot ceilings and across to the walls of glass overlooking the treetops of
Central Park from its 44 feet of park frontage.
The view becomes even more magical from the 400-square-foot terrace. Also included are three bedrooms, four baths, an office, a white kitchen with its own spiral staircase, and a free-standing Fibonacci spiral fireplace in the living room that lends drama. The building, known for its excellent amenities, includes full-time staff, climate-controlled wine rooms, a 75-foot lap pool with skylights, and a 14,000-square-foot fitness centre.
Sting is one of the world’s most popular singers-songwriters-celebrities. Starting out from the rock band, The Police, on to a highly successful solo career, Sting has won 16 Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and four nominations for ‘Best Song’ at the Academy Awards. Now at age 65, he seems to have shifted some of his energy from music to real estate.
Like many of today’s celebrities, Sting turned to real estate as a safe haven to invest his money. Sting and his wife, actress Trudie Styler, have diversified with properties in Italy, England, and the United States. In 2015, they sold a London townhouse at an approximate $20 million profit. In Italy, they own the Il Palagio estate where they spend summers and sell their own produce grown at the farm, and rent it out at upwards of $100,000 per week with afternoon tea included. In the United States, they rent out a California beach house for $200,000 during the summer. Presently, their Manhattan duplex penthouse has been put up on the market for $56 million.
