Annie Liebovitz, known for her portrait photography of celebrities, has closed on a three bedroom co-op apartment on the fifth floor of The Brentmore at 88 Central Park West. She is said to have paid $11.25 million for it. This may be a steal since the apartment was originally listed for as much as $14.5 million last fall.
The apartment has inlaid hardwood floors, French doors, and an attractive central staircase.
The artist will now be a next door neighbor to the actor Robert De Niro.
Built in 1928, The Brentmore is a 12 story, beige-brick, apartment building overlooking Central Park. It is a cooperative with 37 apartments. The building has a doorman and a concierge and sidewalk landscaping.
This will be a much smaller living space for the artist. Last fall she parted with her 10, 200 square-foot compound situated in the heart of Manhattan’s West Village. Her old home, which had thirteen fireplaces, was comprised of three different townhouses combined into one, situated on the corner of Greenwich Street, and West 11th Street.
Liebovitz sold that property for $28.5 million. It was bought by former US President George W. Bush’s niece Lauren and her husband David Lauren, the son of designer Ralph Lauren.
Born in Connecticut, the 63 year old Liebovitz began her career as a staff photographer with Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s. She became famous for her pictures of rock stars like the Rolling Stones and John Lennon.
