Live in Barbra Streisand’s Former CPW Penthouse

What was once Barbra Streisand’s CPW penthouse duplex can now be yours! If you’ve got $11.25 million and enough left over to cover the $12,486 in monthly maintenance.  Located at The Ardsley at 320 Central Park West, at the corner of 92nd Street, this apartment was her home from 1963 until 2002 (first h/t the nytimes.com). In the 1940s, the apartment was also owned by Lorenz Hart, a lyricist best known for his role in Rogers and Hart.

Streisand first moved into the Central Park West duplex with Elliot Gould, her husband at the time. She first listed the apartment in 1998 for $10 million.

It wasn’t sold until 2002, and for only $4.25 million. The buyers – and current owners – have recently listed the apartment with Barbara Fox and Alexis Mintz of Fox Residential.

The 3,670 square foot apartment has nine rooms, 4 bedrooms, a corner library, and 3.5 baths.

The apartment comes with over 2,500 square feet of outdoor space with irrigated terraces.

The Art-Deco Ardsley was built in 1931 and converted to co-op in 1971. It was designed by the legendary architect Emery Roth, who is remembered for several other Central Park West masterpieces including the San Remo, El Dorado, and the Beresford.

The building comes with a 24 hour doorman, gym, children’s playroom, bike and storage rooms and a library.
