Former New Yorker and Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown listed a six-bedroom triplex on East 57th Street for $9.75 million.
The apartment, which Brown shared with her journalist husband Harold Evans, has seen a number of famous dinner guests over the years, including women’s rights advocate Malala Yousafzai, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Brown and Evans bought the property at 447 East 57th Street, a 16-floor co-op with just 23 apartments, for $3.8 million almost 20 years ago and spent about $1 million on improvements, according to the Wall Street Journal. The apartment includes an outdoor garden.
With the children grown, the media power couple plan to relocate to a smaller apartment. The Real Deal reported in May that they would be listing the Sutton Place triplex. Earlier this month, they listed their Quogue home in the Hamptons for $8.6 million.
Brown Harris Stevens’ Kathy Sloane has the listing.
Brown, who grew up in Britain, moved to the U.S. in 1984 to become the editor of Vanity Fair, and later the New Yorker. She currently heads a company that organizes forums and summits. Harold Evans founded Conde Nast Traveler and wrote numerous books. He is currently an editor-at-large at Reuters. [WSJ] — Konrad Putzier
