Bette Midler and her husband, Martin von Haselberg, are moving from their Upper East Side penthouse, which was listed for $50 million in September 2019.
Midler and her family have lived in the 14-bedroom home since the 1990s. Midler revealed that it was time to downsize after her daughter moved out. The 7,000-square-foot apartment is spread out over three floors in a famous Emery Roth designed building on Fifth Avenue. Besides the 14 bedrooms in the unit, there’s also a private elevator which opens to a large, spacious gallery.
The 70-foot entertaining space has high ceilings and features a dining area, living room, and renovated eat-in kitchen with custom wood cabinetry, marble countertops, and high-end appliances. The office and guest bathroom are also located on the main floor.
The bedrooms are located on the second level. Two of the bedrooms have views of Central Park and include large bathrooms and dressing areas. The master suite has oversized windows, a study, and a wood-burning fireplace. There are also three more bedrooms on this floor as well as a large family room and a laundry room.
The top floor features a deluxe library with 13-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, and oversized windows with views of Central Park and Reservoir. A full bathroom is also located on this floor.
There’s an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor space with multiple terraces and a rooftop with a 900-square-foot garden and 360-degree views.
The home was remodeled by Frederick Fisher and Partners Architects, decorated with Fernando Santangelo, and landscaped by Sawyer.
