Residence #915, once the home of the late David Bowie, offers a discerning buyer the opportunity to acquire a Central Park front, convertible 3 bedroom/3 bath residence in the iconic Essex House, a first class Art Deco hotel with 185 privately owned residences. Built in 1931 as the largest and most luxurious hotel in Manhattan, it has been home to celebrities and captains of industry throughout the decades.
This elegantly renovated apartment with graciously proportioned rooms features 9-foot beamed ceilings, a 28-foot living room, and a walnut-paneled library boasting a more than 40-foot panorama with direct Central Park views.

The pass thru kitchen is newly renovated and features top of the line appliances from Gaggeneau, Miele, and Subzero, along with polished granite countertops and custom cabinetry.
The bedrooms face the rear, providing a pin drop quiet refuge from the city beyond.
