Sting Selling Central Park Penthouse for $56 Million

Former Police singer's Central Park West duplex has three bedrooms, four baths.

Real Estate By

Sting (née Gordon Sumner) is considered one of rock’s greatest living songwriters, with a laundry list of hit tunes as both a solo artist and during his tenure fronting the Police.

So what if he produced an entire album of lute music? That, no doubt, helped pay for the finer things in life—like the Central Park West duplex that he recently put on the market for $56 million, per TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

Located at 15 Central Park West, the penthouse offers a 44-foot-wide frontage facing New York’s iconic Central Park, complete with a nearly 400-square-foot terrace.

The duplex itself is large enough to hold a concert—5,417 square feet, and includes three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a home office. The first level has luxury flourishes throughout like a multi-panel wooden screen by Italian artist and sculptor Piero Fornasetti; a living room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the park; an open fireplace with built-in bookshelf walls; and a dining room, with chef’s kitchen.

The master suite sits on the second level, and includes his/hers dressing rooms, dual spa baths, and a sauna.

Building amenities include a 14,000-square-foot fitness center, 75-foot sky-lit lap pool, screening room, private restaurant, and wine rooms.
