Sting stung on sale of NY apart­ment

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

HAV­ING to knock 10 per cent off the ask­ing price would be a prob­lem for most home sell­ers.

But that clearly didn’t bother Sting, who has just sold his New York apart­ment over­look­ing Cen­tral Park for £7.6mil­lion less than he was hop­ing for.

The mu­si­cian, 66, and his wife, Trudie Styler, put the lav­ish du­plex on the market in May for £72mil­lion but have now sold it for £64mil­lion.

The sum is al­most £34mil­lion more than they paid for it in 2008.

The apart­ment takes up the 16th and 17th floors of the 15 Cen­tral Park West build­ing, of­ten de­scribed as one of the “world’s most pow­er­ful ad­dresses.

Past fa­mous res­i­dents in­clude Den­zel Washington, Robert De Niro and Alex Ro­driguez.

Res­i­dents also have the use of a li­brary, screen­ing room, wine cel­lar, gym and pri­vate restau­rant din­ing rooms.

Sting has taken a $7.6m hit.
