Built in 1907 at the corner of 64th Street and Central Park West, this is the first time that this gorgeous home (the most expansive at Manhattans beloved Harperley Hall) has been listed for sale. This “humble” abode boasts over 6,000 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, and nearly 110 feet of frontage onto Central Park.
Harperley Hall was designed by Henry Wilhelm Wilkenson, and is a true homage to Neo-Italian Renaissance with key virtues of the Arts and Crafts movement – a rarity in most New York buildings. This beautiful building features a broad courtyard entrance with stunning sidewalk landscaping, balconies and terra-cotta detailing. Shareholder amenities also include a 20 car garage, gym, bike, storage, laundry rooms and perhaps one of the most handsome rooftop gardens Manhattan has to offer.
The design of this home is truly impeccable with great rooms on both levels, each with their own Juliet balcony with French doors that reveal breathtaking views of the park below. With 5 wood-burning fireplaces, a sophisticated formal dining room, a windowed library/dining room and a chef’s eat-in-kitchen, it comes as no surprise that the music legend was able to live so comfortably here.
So strike a pose fellow material girls, because this dapper dwelling could be yours. Just be aware that you won’t simply be cashing in nearly $24 million for this stunner, as monthly maintenance and upkeep is $11,774. As they say, beauty is pain (or in this case, cash.)
