The Central Park West apartment occupies the entire top floor of the Kenilworth, a white glove, French Second Empire-style co-op built in 1908.
Hollywood power duo Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are putting their Central Park West apartment on the market for a cool $21.5 million.
The luxury New York co-op, listed with Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty – East Side Manhattan Brokerage, stretches between the north and south corners of the Kenilworth, a 1908 building at West 75th Street designed in the French Second Empire style by Townsend, Steinle and Haskell.
Their top-floor apartment, designed by Thierry Despont, was originally 15 rooms but was reconfigured into nine larger spaces. It offers high ceilings, mahogany pocket doors, twin wood-burning fireplaces, and, as you might expect, spectacular views of Central Park.
In addition to Zeta-Jones and Douglas, the Kenilworth—named for the 12th-century English castle—was home for many years to famed Sherlock Holmes actor Basil Rathbone.
