Homes remain unique, precious, beautiful, and absolutely indicative of personal taste for decades to come, but when the home belonged to renowned American artist, fashion designer, socialite, actress, author, and heiress of the fortune of “America’s first great tycoon,” Cornelius Vanderbilt, this prestige and power and is all the more prominent. Two years after the passing of arts and culture icon, Gloria Vanderbilt, 30 Beekman Place, her beloved two-bedroom, two-full bathroom apartment located in Midtown East, has become available on the market. Listed for $1.125M by CNN’s own Anderson Cooper, son of the celebrated Gloria Vanderbilt, this New York City vision of vibrancy is nothing short of show-stopping; creativity is the backbone of the voguish Manhattan apartment, and Gloria Vanderbilt’s opulence and artistry are paid homage to in every fabric of the eye-catching home.
Having initially moved into the dazzling flat in 1997, Gloria Vanderbilt preserved her former home's one-of-a-kind vintage elegance and grandeur choosing not to renovate the already spectacular place. Much like Gloria did, the lavish and significant historical home aged like fine wine. Enticing features of the phenomenal apartment include a vast and striking foyer that incorporates shades of jade and dynamic flamingo in the most complimentary way, a floral-themed maximalist living room full of classic decor and furniture shapes with refined yet lively patterns, colors, and motifs, and a gorgeous gas fireplace. Additionally, the magnificent home overlooks the river and features a massive window displaying the unforgettable city and riverside view. High ceilings and sophisticated stylized chandeliers characterize the space. The home also boasts a classy yet attention-demanding dining room, a breakfast space, and two luxurious bedrooms. Building amenities include a newly built fitness center and on-site laundry services. The new owner will also relish the ability to cherish the former famed home of such a highly admired female artist, in every sense of the word. The listing price stays relatively moderate, at $1.125M, due to the residence’s lower placement, located on the second floor of the building. Regardless of its positioning, this exquisite and extravagant apartment is truly an art lover’s paradise and continues the legacy of a definite creative genius.
Perhaps we’ll find that this eclectic and radiant display of affluence will be pastiched in Manhattan apartments to come, but for now, Gloria Vanderbilt’s luxury residence stands on its own on the market, waiting to inspire the flair, passion, and expression of another.
