Pavarotti’s $20.5 Million Apartment With 40-Foot Terrace on Central Park
The estate of the late Luciano Pavarotti, possibly the most famous operatic tenor of the past 30 years, has combined its $10.5 million listing on Central Park South with the listing next door to create a 3,300-square-foot, $20.5 million apartment.
The proposed floor plan—renovations have not been started yet—includes 72 feet of Central Park frontage, a 40-foot-long terrace, a library, living room/dining room, and a master suite with a dressing room. Both apartments are located on the 23rd floor of the Hampshire House (150 Central Park South) a full-service, 175-unit co-op built in 1938. The building has resident parking, 24-hour staff, laundry service, a health club, and a spa.
Pavarotti's apartment, #2301, which he lived in for close to 30 years, first came on the market two years ago when it was listed for $13.7 million; it was relisted for $10.5 million earlier this year.
Apartment #2302/3, which property records show was purchased by husband and wife Michael Clair and Audrey MacLean in 2005 for $1.65 million, was listed in February for $10 million.
Combining the apartments would appear to play to both apartments' strengths. Pavarotti's apartment has close to double the square footage of 2302/3, while the latter apartment includes the sweeping terrace and Central Park views from every room. Combined, the apartment boasts north, south, and eastern exposures, three bedrooms, and three and a half baths.
