The actor Antonio Banderas is taking another shot at selling his Manhattan co-op apartment, for $7.4 million.
The Spanish star and his wife at the time, Melanie Griffith, purchased the place in 2005 for $4 million. It originally went up for sale in May 2018 for $7.95 million. Two years later, the price of the four-bedroom residence has been reduced by 7%, but no buyer has stepped up as of yet.
Banderas’ apartment is in The Prasada building, one of the most desirable addresses on Central Park West.
The 12-floor prewar building was completed in 1907, and is directly across the street from the Park. There are about 40 units in the building, and for comparison’s sake, a much smaller one-bedroom unit in the building is currently on the market for $1.35 million.
The actor’s apartment is said to offer gorgeous Park views with “50 feet of picture windows overlooking the beautiful treetops of Central Park.”
As you step inside the living area, you’ll notice a fireplace flanked by built-in window seats, which provide ample access to the lovely views.
The living area flows into an intriguing formal dining area, which features a large bay window that focuses on the park. Eleven-foot ceilings give the apartment an airy and spacious feel.
The kitchen features custom cabinetry with stainless-steel appliances from SubZero and Wolf. A thoughtful layout provides ample space and separation between the apartment’s bedrooms and the entertaining and living spaces.
If the proximity to Central Park isn’t enough, residents can also take advantage of the building’s additional perks. The Prasada offers a full-time doorman, elevator operator, live-in resident manager, private storage, bike storage, and an exercise room. The stylish lobby has undergone a full renovation.
In 2014, Griffith filed for divorce from Banderas, after 18 years of marriage. The prolific actor has starred in over 100 films and earned his first Academy Award nomination for the 2019 film “Pain and Glory,” directed by Pedro Almodóvar.
Bernice Leventhal with Corcoran Group-West Side holds the listing.
