Commonly referred to as one of the most influential musical figures of the 20th century, Bowie was widely recognized as a glamorous star with dramatic makeup, remarkable style, and unmatched stage presence. Although the English singer-songwriter unfortunately passed in 2016 due to cancer, his lasting legacy is still apparent in the touches he left behind including his longtime Manhattan apartment.

The New York City property was purchased by Bowie in 1999 for a price of $3.81 million. Located in the Nolita neighborhood, the area offers a charming and chic essence perfectly synonymous with his lively image. Records indicate that this property is currently owned by a trust linked to his estate. Recently though, the superstar’s former residence was placed on the market at an asking price of $16.8 million. Less than a month after its listing, the property has secured a buyer and the home is currently in contract.

Bowie's former longtime residence spans over 5,000 square feet of living space and includes four bedrooms. The stylish apartment sits in a mid-rise Manhattan building that dates back to the late 1800s when the property was utilized as a chocolate factory. The vibrant unit offers direct elevator access and opens to a marvelous 56-foot-long great room. The primary bedroom suite offers more than 1,000 square feet and is equipped with a cozy fireplace and spacious dressing room. Other appealing amenities of the superstar home include a library and three outdoor terraces.

The listing for this property is held by Stuart Moss of the Corcoran Group.
