GARBO. Hollywood legend, timeless beauty, elegant, sensuous, mysterious, iconic. This was her home for 40 years, a resplendent refuge with the grace and sophistication one would naturally associate with the unparalleled Greta Garbo. She was drawn to this sprawling three bedroom, three bath aerie directly above the East River partly because the passing boats reminded her of her beloved, native Stockholm. This stunning, sun-drenched, floor-through, river-front residence, which has been meticulously maintained and updated by Garbo's family, features a private elevator lobby opening into an expansive formal entrance gallery. A grand, L-shaped living room with working fireplace and a separate library/den area, is clad in exquisite knotty pine wood paneling, against which Garbo displayed her extensive and renowned collection of art. Large picture windows frame the cinematic cityscape of bridges and buildings to the south and east, majestic river views all the way to NY Harbor, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. French doors at the far end of the room open to river breezes and an inviting private balcony. The walls of the spacious master bedroom are adorned in Garbo's favorite rose-hued Fortuny silk, as is the headboard. The second bedroom features custom-designed, brass latticed, encased bookshelves. The third bedroom, like the others, boasts dramatic river views, and all three bedrooms have beautifully-appointed en-suite bathrooms. A thoughtfully designed office includes a custom desk and built-ins. At the opposite end of the apartment is a formal dining room with elegant Scandinavian ethos and flair, off of which is a large kitchen with generous storage and workspace - including locking silver and wine cabinets - and with an eating area positioned to take advantage of this home's signature river views. With cedar-lined closets throughout, a separate laundry/utility room, high ceilings, and gracious, inviting flow, this home has a grand scale and an intimate soul. Quietly situated in the famously private and well served Campanile, a handsome 1927 building coveted for its discreet location off of a quiet cul-de-sac, this world-class residence - like the legendary beauty who called it home - is luminous and unforgettable.
