by Andrea Caamano

David Bowie's former New York apartment is on the market, and it could be yours for £5.2million! The stunning property which boasts three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and large windows with direct view of Central Park was home to David and Iman for ten years. The couple sold the property in 2002 for $1.7million to move downtown to a property in SoHo that the singer had bought in 1999.

Fans of David might be interested to know that the apartment comes with a unique piece of memorabilia, a pristine Yamaha piano that once belonged to the singer, who passed away in 2015. According to real estate agent firm Corcodan, it is the perfect home to "make beautiful music in".

The condo is located inside the Essex House in Manhattan. "Living at Essex House is the perfect blend of residential living and hotel living with every amenity at your fingertips from maid's service to room service," Corcodan states in the listing.
