LOS AN­GE­LES — Here’s your chance to live like a rock star. Sting and Trudie Styler have listed their New York City pent­house for $56 mil­lion. Set in a lime­stone-clad build­ing along 43 feet of Cen­tral Park frontage, the du­plex pent­house was de­signed by mod­ern tra­di­tion­al­ist ar­chi­tect Robert A.M. Stern.

Sting’s du­plex takes in Cen­tral Park and city views from win­dows on two lev­els and from the nearly 400-square-foot ter­race.

The 5,417-square-foot res­i­dence features a foyer with a wind­ing stair­case, an open fire­place that serves as a room di­vider, three bed­rooms, a home of­fice and 10-foot ceil­ings. There’s a spi­ral stair­case in the kitchen for mid­night-snack ac­cess to the mas­ter suite, which features dual dress­ing rooms.

Among com­mu­nity ameni­ties are white-gloved build­ing staff, a land­scaped mo­tor court, garage park­ing and a 14,000-square-foot fit­ness cen­tre with a skylit lap pool.

Sting, 65, has re­ceived 16 Gram­mys as a soloist and mem­ber of the new wave band the Po­lice. Among his solo hits are “Fortress Around Your Heart,” “Fields of Gold” and “When We Dance.”

Locked and loaded for a sale

The Sher­man Oaks home owned by Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKa­gan and his wife, Su­san, is for sale at $3.85 mil­lion. Set be­hind gates, the Span­ish ha­cienda-style com­pound dates to 1935.

Mo­saic tile, wood-burn­ing fire­places and ex­posed beams are among the features of the five-bed­room, five-bath­room main house, which has a sub­ter­ranean wine cel­lar. The mas­ter suite features soar­ing vaulted ceil­ings and two walkin clos­ets.

The de­tached guest house, which opens to a shaded ve­randa, con­tains a liv­ing room, a bed­room, a kitch­enette and a bath­room.

There are also sta­bles, a barn con­verted to a gym/of­fice and an art stu­dio/bonus room. Out­door en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas in­clude a swim­ming pool and built-in bar­be­cue.

The half-acre prop­erty has ma­ture palms, jacaran­das, bougainvil­lea, fruit trees and a cir­cu­lar drive­way.

McKa­gan, 53, had a 12-year stint with Guns N’ Roses in the 1980s and ’90s, re­turn­ing to the band last year. He also founded the su­per­group Vel­vet Re­volver, has done solo work and per­forms lead vo­cals for Loaded.

A val­ley home for the leader of the pack

Ce­sar Mil­lan of “Dog Whis­perer” fame has found a new place to sit and stay in the San Fer­nando Val­ley, buy­ing a home in a leafy En­cino neigh­bour­hood for about $2.783 mil­lion.

His new house, built last year, com­bines el­e­ments of the East Coast-in­spired tra­di­tional and farm­house styles with white boar­dand-bat­ten sid­ing and deep eaves.

Within the 5,400 square feet of open-plan space are a liv­ing room with a fire­place, a for­mal din­ing room, a cen­ter-is­land kitchen, a den and an of­fice. A pass-through con­nects the kitchen and din­ing room ar­eas. Tucked be­neath the stair­case is a tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled wine room.

In the mas­ter suite, a free-stand­ing two-way fire­place sits be­tween the bed­room and a sit­ting room. There are five bed­rooms and 5.5 bath­rooms in all.

A salt­wa­ter swim­ming pool, a built-in bar­be­cue, lawns and landscaping fill out the back­yard, which may by now be filled with dogs too.

Mil­lan, 47, gained fame as the self-taught dog-train­ing star of the tele­vi­sion se­ries “Dog Whis­perer With Ce­sar Mil­lan.” He cur­rently hosts and pro­duces the Nat Geo Wild se­ries “Ce­sar Mil­lan’s Dog Na­tion” with son An­dre.
