Joan Collins has listed her longtime Manhattan pied-à-terre, a spacious co-op, for $2.095 million.
The actress, best known for her role in the 1980s television series, Dynasty, purchased the apartment with her husband, Percy Gibson, as newlyweds in 2002 – which they moved into almost a year later. Collins immediately fell in love with the spaciousness of the rooms and the feeling of light and airiness. The apartment also holds 16 closets, which most definitely caught the attention of Collins.
The couple has finally listed their apartment after placing it on the market and removing it numerous times. They turned down offers under the impression that they would be using their Manhattan space more often. Collins and Gibson also own residences in London, Los Angeles, and Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera. The couple currently resides in their London home and spends their summers in Saint-Tropez, as well as on their yacht in the harbor.
The apartment is comprised of three combined units, which was combined by the previous owner, on the eight floor of the Dorchestor. It includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms within the 2,200 square foot space.
The foyer leads to an open living room and formal dining area which includes oversize windows with views of 57th street, as well as a galley kitchen. The primary suite which was originally a studio apartment, has a large walk-in closet and two additional closets. The couple has also used one of the other two rooms as an office/den space.
Renovations have been made by Collins and Gibson over the years. They’ve refinished the oak floors, refitted the bathrooms and installed mirrors on many of the walls. The apartment also has a full-time doorman and is pet friendly.
The Dorchestor is situated near Park Avenue which is just a few blocks from Central Park.
