Former Hampshire House Home of Luciano Pavarotti Finally Sold
Famed singer Luciano Pavarotti's former two-bedroom Central Park apartment in the famed Hampshire House has finally found a buyer, three years after first appearing on the market. While Pavarotti passed away in 2007, his widow did not list the home till 2014. At the time, the asking price was $13.7 million. According to The New York Times, the apartment finally sold last month for $9 million.
It seems as though the apartment will continue to house musical royalty, as it was purchased by singer Alva Craft, who was married to the late conductor Robert Craft. Among the apartment's may beautiful features are oak herringbone floors, high ceilings, and stunning views of Central Park. This pied-a-terre had briefly been part of a combo sale in 2016 that fell through. This may have contributed to the price drop.
Hampshire House is a full-service building that offers lavish amenities to its residents including a state-of-the-art security system, doorman, bell captain, spa, courtesy car, and more. It also offers one of the most sought-after amenities in all of NYC - fast and easy access to Central Park.
