The “remarkable” apartment in NYC that sparked Diane Keaton’s interest in architecture and design is now up for sale for $17.5 million.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is in the iconic San Remo co-op building at 145 Central Park West, where the view of Central Park is worth a couple million alone.
The San Remo co-op building was the first twin-towered building in New York when it was built in 1930. The Beaux-Arts building was designed by Emery Roth and received landmark status in 1987.
Keaton purchased the starter apartment at age 30, following her role in Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall.”
“There was a window on every side. Everything was wide open. That was the beginning of my true interest in architecture”
A private elevator opens up to a center hall, and a wood-paneled library is accessible via pocket doors and comes with a full bath.
The living room has a coffered ceiling and connects to a formal dining. The renovated chef’s kitchen is bigger than many NYC studios, and has two sinks, a gourmet vented stove, and a breakfast room.
A butler’s pantry that brides the kitchen to the dining room serves as a wet bar and food staging area.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and the pre-war apartment also boasts hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and a home office.
All of the rooms have fantastic views of the park and excellent sunlight (perfect for growing these house plants).
According to New York Post, the listers are Lawrence Slaughter, vice chairman of investment banking and managing director at Lazard, and his wife, Constance, who paid $13.5 million for the unit in 2012.
Other celebrity tenants in the building have included Demi Moore, Steven Spielberg, Donna Karan, Tiger Woods and Steve Martin. Reportedly Dan Fishman of Corcoran represents the listing.
