Meticulously renovated duplex at 530 East 72nd Street, New York, once owned by by Frank Sinatra is on sale for $7.7 million. Built in 1961, this 3,000 square-foot luxury apartment was once famously dubbed a “glittering grotto in the sky” by Andy Warhol.
With panoramic views of New York’s East River, the apartment has four bedrooms and four full bathrooms with towering 18-foot ceilings and bare brick walls and a wraparound terrace. Additionaly it includes a private gym, a glass spiral staircase, and even a putting green.
“The apartment has been modernized, but it is still set up for someone with that Rat Pack mentality,’’ real estate broker Jason Haber told. “It is really for someone who wants to entertain, to have people over, to have dinner parties.”
Sinatra used the apartment for entertaining many celebrities including Marilyn Monroe, president John F. Kennedy and Sammy Davis Jr, who allegedly has tossed champagne glasses from the terraces onto FDR Drive, 23 stories below. In 1972, he sold it to his celebrity doctor, Denton Cox, whose other patients included Warhol, Judy Garland and John Steinbeck. [Rubicon Property]
