Actor Alec Baldwin has listed his four-bedroom co-op in the El Dorado building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for $8,900,000.
The New York Post's Jennifer Gould Keil appears to have broken the story today of Baldwin's listing of his longtime co-op in the El Dorado, which is at 300 Central Park West.
Baldwin's 22nd-floor apartment is in an Art Deco style and has four and a half baths, a formal entry gallery with starburst hardwood inlay, 12-foot ceilings, a large windowed eat-in kitchen, two maids' rooms and two maids' bathrooms, along with a separate, smaller apartment (1J) that could function as a home office, exercise studio, library or service quarters, according to listing information. Other features in the unit include a large master suite with an en suite bath that is in "excellent condition," according to listing information. It appears that Baldwin purchased the apartment in 1991, and paid an undisclosed price for it.
Although we seldom name agents, we were intrigued by the fact that Keil never mentioned who Baldwin's listing agent is; we're not entirely sure why that is, but it's Scott Stewart of Corcoran. Check out an online listing sheet for Baldwin's co-op -- without photos -- here.
Keil reported that Baldwin has been looking at buying a unit that is for sale in the famed Dakota co-op building nearby. Stay tuned.
We have written separately about the El Dorado building before, when we wrote about Moby's efforts to sell his co-op in 2007 and 2008 for a listing price of $7,500,000. Although we don't believe we ever followed up on it, Moby did indeed end up selling his co-op in the summer of 2008 for $6,700,000 to a non-celebrity named T.M. Dempsey, according to public records and this article.
