Housed in a converted chocolate factory and complete with four bedrooms, a library, and three terraces – here’s a peek into David Bowie’s NYC apartment that was sold for $16.8 million

Would you like to stay inside the legendary musician David Bowie’s home? Well, giving you a chance to do just that is a recent listing of his longtime downtown Manhattan apartment, which comes with an asking price of $16.8 million.

Located near Washington Square Park in the SoHo/ Nolita neighborhood, the 5,000 square foot apartment was originally built in 1886 as the Hawley & Hoops chocolate factory. It was later refurbished into a full-service condominium building with 30 units in the 1990s.

It consists of four bedrooms and three bathrooms along with three outdoor terraces, direct elevator access, 11-foot ceilings, a library, a half bath, and an open kitchen. The plush home is tastefully done and features a mix of contemporary and rustic décor.

In addition to a range of amenities, the Master bedroom suite of the lavish home (measuring over 1,000 square feet) features a fireplace, dressing room, oversized bath, and private terrace. It also comes with a full-time doorman to guard the red-brick residence round the clock.

The property was apparently purchased by Bowie for a price of $3.81 million in 1999. It was listed on sale by Stuart Moss from The Corcoran Real Estate Group in June and has now been taken off from the website as it has secured a buyer for $16.8 million.

Either way, nothing can stop us from dreaming over a home like this one!
