There's just something about the Beresford. We love it. The castle-like appearance, the storied history, the way it sounds when you pronounce it Beresford while holding a snifter a brandy. It's all such a fancy little package. And Michael Calderone reports in this week's Observer that a duplex on the 17th and 18th floors of the Central Park West co-op has been put up for sale for a cool $31 million. Now, when last we discussed the building, Glenn Close was taking over Rock Hudson's old, um, bachelor pad after a huge PriceChop. And If you scoop up this corner three-bedroom apartment, you'll also have celebs like Jerry Seinfeld, Bob Weinstein and John McEnroe as neighbors. Too bad the view sucks. The bottom floor includes a library, a dining room with city views and an eat-in kitchen. Upstairs has a master suite with a grand bedroom featuring five windows on the park, double baths, dressing areas, a den, two additional bedrooms, two baths and a maid’s room.
