The Struggle To Sell 895 Park Avenue
The Manhattan triplex penthouse of the late movie producer Charles Evans, brother of Bob, has been in and out of our Sunday real estate round-up a bunch of times and none of them ending with the magic word "sold." The NY Observer's Max Abelson reports that the 14-room, four-bedroom unit at 895 Park Avenue is back on the market once again after the building's co-op board turned down a buyer who had signed a contract for at least $14 million. This is the third time that a deal for the penthouse has fallen through and the price of the apartment has been steadily tumbling since 2007 when it was first listed for $29.5 million. Now you can get this impressive spread for a far more modest $15.5 million.
The apartment offers terraces on the 16th and 18th floors with views of Central Park and the West Side skyline. It's a big, beautiful, glamourous New York City pad with large formal rooms for entertaining and an entire floor given over to bedrooms. It also includes an eat-in kitchen and there are two wood burning fireplaces in the library and living room. The co-op board is said to be looking for "settled" types with solid income.
