Demi Moore has finally offloaded her glorious San Remo triplex. The sale of the fabled apartment comes nearly four years after the actress first sought to sell as a whisper listing for $75 million. That strat didn’t work out so well: The apartment appeared on the market in April 2015, still with the rumored $75 million price tag.
Moore has owned the penthouse since 1990, when she purchased it with then-husband Bruce Willis. The couple also picked up a two-bedroom maisonette on the ground floor that was initially included in the $75 million price tag. Whether or not the maisonette was ultimately included in the triplex sale—which hit public record today for $45 million—is unclear. As can be expected, the triplex buyer’s identity is shielded.
In April 2015, shortly after the public listing appeared, Moore told the Times that she and Willis bought in the building because "there was just nothing like it. The location, architecture and history of the San Remo were on a completely different level." Why, then, leave the building behind? “I’m spending the majority of my time in my other homes, and this apartment is too magnificent not to be lived in full time."
That magnificent apartment is comprised of 14 rooms, not counting bathrooms, that are done up in a Southwestern Mission motif with lots of cherry wood. A library on the apartment’s southeast corner includes original plaster rosette molding and bas reliefs on the ceiling, and a living room nearby with three exposures looks over Central Park. A media room is located at the top of the building’s south tower, that parallels the penthouse of the north tower, home to Bono.
After sitting on the market for over two years, the apartment received its first and only price reduction, to $59 million. Its at that price where the apartment entered contract with Adam Modlin at The Modlin Group.
