Englishman Sting and his wife Trudie Styler just sold their magnificent penthouse overlooking the Central Park in New York for a whopping $50 million. The couple had bought the penthouse for $27 million in 2008. They will now shift to a triplex at Central Park South. The building is constructed by the same builders who built the penthouse building where the couple stayed earlier.
In May 2017, the 56-year old musician put his 15 Central Park West residence for sale at a price of $56 million but sold it for $6 million less. The luxury duplex penthouse has a massive master bedroom with a huge bathtub facing the Manhattan skyline. The couple is now looking forward to buying a triplex, nicknamed as the “billionaire’s bunker,” at 220 Central Park South, but it won’t be ready for possession until 2018.
Photos uploaded on Sotheby on duplex penthouse’s listing reveal the master bedroom has fur throws, two separate bathrooms for each person, a humongous closet, and the priceless Manhattan skyline view. It is located on the second floor of the duplex. Two separate apartments from the 16th and 17th floor were merged into one duplex and interior designers were hired to incorporate the power couple’s personality into the home decor. The penthouse is located in the 15 Central Park West building and is often explained as one of the world’s most powerful addresses.
Sting and his wife Styler have been in a relationship for over 35 years and married for 25. The couple bought the property in 2008 for $27 million. After selling it in 2017, they made a huge profit of $22 million. The penthouse consists a total of 5,400 square feet of living space. Styler chose to keep the decor simple with mostly white and some colorful accents. The stairs have a roll of velvet red fabric covering it, making it look straight out of a Disney movie.
The kitchen is completely white with two fridges, four ovens, and three dishwashers. The penthouse also has a sauna and steam room and also a 400 square feet terrace with an outdoor heating system. Other parts of the include a restaurant-style dining room, screen room, gym, and a wine cellar.
Living in luxury doesn’t come cheap as the penthouse’s monthly maintenance costs a crazy $10,000. We are excited to see how the couple decorates their triplex.
