For two decades, its spectacular garden served as the perfect backdrop for parties attended by the likes of Salman Rushdie, Bianca Jagger and Howard Schultz. Now, media power couple Tina Brown and Sir Harold Evans are looking to Sell Their Sutton Place maisonette for $9.75 million.

Located at 447 East 57th Street, a 15-story Rosario Candela co-op building with just 23 units, the triplex apartment measures more than 6,000 square feet and spans the building’s first three floors. It has four bedrooms and several wood-burning fireplaces.

But the crown jewel is a 20-foot by 65-foot garden where Brown hosted many of her legendary soirees.

Listing broker Kathy Sloane of Brown Harris Stevens wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Evans, a veteran editor and publisher, and Brown, former editor of Vanity Fair, the New Yorker and Newsweek, moved into the triplex in 1996, property records show.

But they reportedly paid between $3 million and $4 million for the pad with help from Brown’s former employer Condé Nast, according to the Observer.

In 2006, the couple took part in a lawsuit filed by the building’s co-op board, seeking to prevent developer Jon Kully of Flank from tearing down a townhouse abutting Evans and Brown’s property to make way for a 15-story condominium building at 441 East 57th Street. A state appeals court sided with the developer, however, and the new building was completed in 2008.
