David Bowie’s former Essex House apartment hits the market

An Essex House apartment that once belonged to David Bowie and his wife Iman hit the market yesterday with a $6.5 million asking price.

Bowie lived in the building — also known as 160 Central Park South — between 1992 and 2002. While it is unclear how much he paid for the place, city records show he sold the three-bedroom spread for $1.7 million.

The 1,877-square-foot pad still has some remnants from the couple’s time in the apartment, such as a paneled dressing room built for Iman, and some hidden shelves in the living room. But alas, the panic room they had created in the former master bathroom — just in case a fan got inside the apartment — is once again a water closet.

Also included in the sale is Bowie’s Yamaha piano, which has reportedly been handed down with the apartment through various owners.

Bowie’s former Caribbean island oasis is also up for grabs — for $60k-a-night.
