A Look Inside The Gorgeous NYC Condo Janet Jackson Is Selling For $9 Million

Janet Jackson is selling her three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom residence at 1 Central Park West in New York City for $8,995,000 million, according to Sotheby's. The most spectacular feature about the Queen of Pop's home is its amazing 34th floor location, and panoramic view of Central Park and the famous New York City skyline. Floor to ceiling windows frame magnificent views from every room of the 2,094 square foot unit. Jackson purchased the condo 25 years ago for $2.8 million, per Mansion Global, but according to a spokesperson, hasn't been in the building since 2019. 

The elegant building was built in 1996, and is part of the Trump International Hotel and Tower complex located at the southwest corner of Central Park, just off of Columbus Circle. The first 17 floors of the 52-story building house the hotel, per Corcoran. The upper portion of the building, known as the Tower, is comprised of 166 luxurious condominium units. The Tower offers residents the level of service and amenities one would expect for the price tag including a full-time doorman, housekeeping, and concierge services, as well as room service from the Jean-Georges Vongerichten's eponymous restaurant in the hotel.  

Mesmerizing views of Central Park and NYC

You enter the residence through a gallery-style foyer, but as soon as you turn the corner, you are awestruck by the magnificent views inside and out, and the natural light flooding the open plan living room and dining area. According to Sotheby's, there are ten-foot ceilings and walls of windows, which make this one of the best views you can get in the city. Beautiful, medium-toned, wide-plank hardwood floors are found throughout the main rooms and bedrooms. The walls are topped with elegant crown molding, which are painted a dark brown in the bedrooms.

White walls and light-colored furnishings throughout the condominium create a fresh, inviting atmosphere and keep the decor in balance. Electric shades glide up and out of the way in the main living space to ensure that the view is not obstructed. Recessed lights are discreetly tucked into ceilings and soffits throughout. 

An inviting den feels cozy and inviting

One of the bedrooms, which is being used as a den, has a wall of custom cabinetry in a rich, brown wood. Each of the three bedrooms is designed ensuite, with its own bathroom. Throughout the residence, there are beautifully carved dark wood doors with raised panels.

In NYC, where even window space comes at a premium, this kitchen does not disappoint. A floor-to-ceiling window is inset with a bar countertop and stools so you can enjoy a quick bite while gazing at the view. Sotheby's describes the kitchen as discretely positioned with two entrances, one a double-door entry with off of the dining area and a second off of the foyer. A perfect configuration to accommodate deliveries or catering when you are entertaining. The compact kitchen has a simple decor with black walls and countertops, white tile floors, and sleek white cabinetry with some glass-faced upper cabinets and clear knobs. 

A master bedroom retreat

The primary bedroom suite is truly a dream, according to Sotheby's. It's tucked away at the far end of the residence and features a walk-in closet and two other large closets. It might not provide enough storage for the pop star but should do for some residents. The marble bathroom has a double-sink vanity and a separate shower and tub. You can enjoy the sunrise over the park from this relaxing setting. 

The building provides residents with access to a state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool, and luxurious spa. If you need to go beyond that, the Lincoln Square neighborhood, named after the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, is also home to the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet, and the Metropolitan Opera, among many other cultural institutions. The Time Warner Center complex just across the street on Broadway has upscale shops and restaurants for every taste and is just across Broadway, and the Museum of Arts and Design is on the other side of Columbus Circle.
