Celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz has listed her home in the Brentmore co-op at 88 Central Park West for $8.6 million. As 6sqft previously reported, Leibovitz purchased the “classic-seven” co-op in 2014 for $11.25 million in a building known for celebrity residents like Robert DeNiro, Paul Simon, and Sting. Leibovitz, whose iconic images feature luminaries from John Lennon and Yoko Ono to Mick Jagger and Demi Moore, thoroughly renovated the Upper West Side co-op, her Manhattan home base in the ensuing years. As the New York Times reports, she also owns a home in the West Village as well as a family home in Rhinebeck, NY.

Listing broker Deborah Kern of the Corcoran Group told the Times the four-bedroom residence is “priced to sell,” as it’s listed at a roughly $2.7 million discount.

“The apartment is now too big for me,” Leibovitz told the Times in an email. “I live and work downtown,” she said, “and our house upstate is now our family home.”

The enviable Upper West Side apartment is wrapped by picture windows offering iconic Central Park views. Pre-war details like high ceilings, polished hardwood floors, and decorative moldings frame the home’s interiors.

The space is introduced by an elegant entrance gallery. A suitably grand formal dining room abuts a 32-by-20-foot living room with space for a grand piano and plenty of seating.

The renovated eat-in kitchen boasts top-of-the-line appliances and custom cabinetry. An adjacent butler’s pantry offers a rare amount of prep and storage space for a Manhattan kitchen. A separate home office is ready for serious work. Also on this floor is a staff room/bedroom with an en-suite bath, and a fully equipped laundry area.

Up a curving stair is the home’s private space. A sprawling primary bedroom gets a windowed bath, a walk-in closet, a second closet, and those fabulous Central Park views.

Also on this level are two more bedrooms with plenty of closet space. A second full bath can be accessed by both bedrooms.

Built in 1910, the Schwartz & Gross-designed full-service building doesn’t skimp on modern amenities: The pet-friendly residence offers an attended lobby with a concierge, doorman services, private storage space, a gym, and an emergency backup generator.
