Bill Blass’ Sutton Place penthouse asking $7M

The Sutton Place penthouse pad belonging to the late American fashion designer Bill Blass has hit the market with a $6.75 million asking price.

The top floor spread at 444 East 57th Street, comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 3,000-square-feet of private terraces, meaning the pad’s outdoor space is bigger than the apartment itself.


The home also enjoys direct elevator entry, a large skylight, some very pretty views of the East River and 59th Street Bridge, and it’s been on the receiving end of a two year renovation.

Blass isn’t the building’s only famous resident though, Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, and Bobby Short have all called 444 East 57th Street home over the years. Meanwhile model Suzy Parker rented this very apartment before Blass owned it, sources close to the sale told LLNYC.

Blass, who dressed the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, Gloria Vanderbilt, Nancy Reagan, and Marlene Dietrich, died in 2002.
