After 18 years of happy memories, Dynasty star Joan Collins and her film producer husband Percy Gibbons have listed their beloved Manhattan apartment for $2.095 million, according to a report by the New York Times.
The couple purchased the three-bedroom apartment as newlyweds in 2002. They've used it to host a variety of celebrity friends and family, such as Collins’s sister and novelist Jackie Collins, the musicians Michael Feinstein and Neil Sedaka, and actress Diahann Carroll.
“Every time Neil or Michael told us they’d come," Collins is quoted, "we would rent a piano in the hopes we could persuade them to play a few tunes."
The midtown apartment is situated on the 8th-floor of The Dorchester near Park Avenue and within a couple of steps from Central Park. The 2,200-square-foot unit sprawls across three combined apartments, boasting three bathrooms and 16 closets. The large glass windows of the living space look out onto 57th Street and provide an airy, light and welcoming feel, which is what Ms. Collins says she fell in love with.
The primary bedroom is a former studio, complete with a giant walk-in closet— Ms. Collins's favorite spot in the pied-a-terre— plus two more closets, according to the Times.
The couple made a few renovations over the years, including updates to the wooden oak floors and redoing the bathrooms. It's a bittersweet moment for the couple, but they still own hoes in Los Angeles, London, and St.-Tropez.
