Sting lists 15 Central Park West pad for $56M

Every move Sting makes, we’ll be watching him. The singer-songwriter and former “Police” frontman has just listed his duplex apartment at Robert A.M. Stern’s 15 Central Park West for $56 million.

Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, bought the place in 2008 directly from the developers for $26.98 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, which first broke the news, the couple hired the architecture firm SheltonMindel to renovate the space, adding two spiral staircases (one of which is in the kitchen) and a spiral fireplace in the living room.

The 5,400-square-foot pad has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms (two of which are in the master bedroom), a 400-square-foot terrace with heaters that overlooks Central Park, built-in bookcases and a library.

If you can believe it, the couple tells the Journal they are selling because they are looking for a bigger apartment for their family (Sting has six kids, plus grandkids).
