The long-time residence of the late news anchor Barbara Walters has been placed on the market. The Upper East Side of Manhattan residence is for sale for $19.75 million. BW moved into the opulent apartment for the first time in 1989, and it is just as glitzy as you’d anticipate the residence of one of the most well-known news anchors in the world to be.
Barbara spent her last years on this specific estate before passing away in December at the age of 93. The mansion is believed to be in exactly the same condition as it was when the renowned writer called it home, right down to the furnishings, artwork, and other collector items. The Wall Street Journal broke the news of the listing.
The house has Central Park views and two bedrooms right now, but it has the potential to grow to four. A wood-burning fireplace, 10-foot ceilings, and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the park views are just a few of its other interesting features. The main bedroom suite features a room/office, a sizable wardrobe, and stunning city views!
Naturally, Barbara went on to become one of the most enduring journalists in history and the first woman to host NBC’s “Today”; therefore, it should come as no surprise that she entertained many notable individuals at her house, including Monica Lewinsky before she consented to be interviewed by Walters about the Bill Clinton controversy. The listing is held by Compass’ Alexa Lambert.
