A day in the life of Sir Paul McCartney apparently involves searching for a new home on the Upper East Side. The former Beatle was reportedly seen looking at a four-bedroom on the 16th floor of 1049 Fifth Avenue.
The Museum Mile condo has been on the market for over a year, and is currently listed for $12.9 million, which was reduced from $13.5 million this past July. Unit 16B spans 3,335 square feet in a prewar building. The interior of the 1049 Fifth Avenue four-bedroom includes a library paneled with mahogany and classic coffered ceilings.
The baths in the 1049 Fifth Avenue condo are made of marble, boasting traditional fixtures. The master bath has a separate shower and double vanity. The kitchen is fitted with granite countertops and floors, while the cabinetry is a traditional white wood.
1049 Fifth Avenue offers a 24 hour concierge and doorman, but the most alluring aspect of unit 16B has to be the Central Park and Reservoir views. Also visible from 1049 Fifth Avenue is the Eldorado at 300 Central Park West. The iconic Upper West Side co-op is one of the most celebrated Emery Roth towers.
While McCartney is searching in the Upper East side, his old bandmate John Lennon famously spent his time in the Upper West Side at the Dakota. The prestigious co-op is considered to be one of Manhattan’s most prized landmarks, and is home to several celebrities.
Though the condo at 1049 Fifth Avenue is certainly a fine choice, we’re sure that Sir Paul can afford more than a $12.9 million condo, so we will not be surprised if he passes on this one.
