A spectacular penthouse once owned by a world-famous musician has just hit the market! And while that’s actually not terribly unusual in NYC, this particular pairing of artist and apartment might surprise you. According to the New York Post, the artist is Moby, an icon of the downtown dance-music scene who has sold 20 million records worldwide. And the apartment? It’s a multilevel masterpiece on Central Park West between 90th and 91st streets. That’s decidedly uptown, if you haven’t noticed!

The home was listed in early March for $5,750,000. Curiously, that asking price is about a million dollars less than its previous recorded sale price of $6.7 million back in 2008.

Apartment 31D at 300 Central Park West is not your average NYC luxury abode. This four-level tower penthouse takes up the 31st, 32nd, 33rd, and 34th floors of the south tower of the El Dorado co-op — yes, it’s four entire floors.

Inside are three gracious bathrooms and bedrooms, one of which is outfitted as a library complete with mahogany paneling. There’s also a top-of-the-line chef’s kitchen and a full-floor media room/den for your entertainment and relaxation pleasure.

Every single room offers spectacular views of the park and the skyline. But if that’s not enough, there are also multiple grand terraces from which to enjoy the views alfresco. It’s really no wonder the listing agent, Frances Katzen of Douglas Elliman, calls this magnificent home a “townhouse in the sky.”

About the El Dorado

The El Dorado is a two-towered Art Deco co-op that takes up an entire block of Central Park West. It is one of architect Emery Roth’s great NYC masterpieces, along with the Ardsley, the San Remo, the Beresford, and many others. Its location between 90th and 91st streets means that its west-facing windows overlook Central Park‘s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, one of the most prized views in the city.
