Zorro is disappearing from some serious Upper West Side real estate — or at least, the man who played him is. Actor Antonio Banderas, perhaps best known for his sword-slashing, gun-toting film roles (and for looking, you know, like this) has just listed a rather lovely 4-bedroom co-op in the Prasada, at 50 Central Park West, for $7.95 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The roomy, fourth-floor unit has treetop views of Central Park and all the finery you’d expect of a 1907 Beaux-Arts beauty: herringbone floors, beamed ceilings, bay windows, and decorative fireplaces. Modern touches like a Sub-Zero fridge and Wolf range won’t elicit many complaints. (What does Zorro cook? Swordfish?) Neither will the extended floor plan, which has the living rooms facing Central Park and the more private areas down a long hallway in back.
Banderas bought the place in 2005 for $3.995 million with then-wife Melanie Griffith, according to the Journal, then kept it after the couple split. No word on why Zorro is vanishing from it now — Banderas is about to star in the Amazon TV show “Life Itself,” which takes place partly in NYC. Maybe he’s trading up to something more modern, like fellow action hero Bruce Willis just did?
Whatever the reason, check out Banderas’ soon-to-be-former apartment:
