Actors Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones Selling Upper West Side Grand Apartment


Edited by:

On the entertainment front, it appears that Netflix fans have a lot to look forward to this summer in terms of new productions. According to a recent report in the New York Post, film actor Michael Douglas has been enjoying his role in the funny series, “The Kominsky Method” which reunites him with actress Kathleen Turner, who he starred with in such iconic films as “Romancing the Stone” and “The Jewel of the Nile.”

More recently, the Post reported that Douglas, now 76 and his wife of 20 years. Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, have appeared in the “Prodigal Son” on the Fox entertainment channel.

Back in 2019, the couple decided to downsize their living arrangement by moving Manhattan to Westchester and now it has been reported that they are selling their opulent Central Park West apartment for $21.5 million.

Their luxurious Upper West Side pad hit the market at a time when many New Yorkers are fleeing the city for less populated venues and to escape the gradual deterioration of the quality of life in the Big Apple. Many blame the soaring crime rates while others blame mismanagement of the city in general.

The building where Douglas and Zeta-Jones called home in Manhattan is called the Kenilworth. It was built in 1908 by Townsend, Steinle & Haskell, to look like a 12th-century English castle, which shares its name, according to the NY Post report.

The Post also reported that the apartment was designed by Thierry Despont and the description of the place is exceptionally impressive. The grand digs consist of four bedrooms, and five and a half bathrooms and offers plenteous space for entertaining guests. The apartment also boasts exquisite views of Central Park, high ceilings, mahagony doors, large rooms and wood-burning fireplaces, according to the NY Post report.

The apartment also has a spacious living room, wood paneled corner library, formal dining room and an eat-in chef’s kitchen, according to the Post.

The Post reported that a bedroom suite features a sitting area, a marble bath and two large dressing rooms. Building amenities include a common roof terrace. The listing broker is Sotheby’s Serena Boardman.
