The fabled San Remo triplex that sits atop the building’s south tower is poised to return to the market for $50 million, two and half years after selling to an anonymous trust for $45 million. Word of the penthouse’s listing comes via the Wall Street Journal, who got the scoop from the property’s listing agent, Roger Erickson at Douglas Elliman.

The penthouse’s seller remains under wraps, but the property has a storied history of owners that nearly makes up for that. Prior to its current owners, the penthouse belonged to actress Demi Moore who purchased the 8,000-square-foot pad in 1990 with then-husband Bruce Willis.

Moore listed the property on the open market—after allegedly trying to offload it as a whisper listing—for $75 million in April 2015. “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,” Moore told the New York Times at the time of its listing. (Moore and Willis also owned a maisonette in the building. That property is not part of the current listing, a Douglas Elliman rep confirms.)

Before Moore and Willis purchased the property, it was owned by Bee Gees manager Robert Stigwood who expanded the co-op to its current configuration after buying some mechanical space at the top of the building, according to Erickson.

That five-bedroom apartment has 14 rooms, not counting bathrooms, that are done up in a Southwestern Mission motif and accented with cherry wood. A library on the apartment’s southeast corner includes original plaster rosette molding and bas reliefs on the ceiling. A living room nearby with three exposures overlooks Central Park (along with many other windows throughout the co-op.).Central Park
