Three years after her death, the print pioneer’s family is finally selling Brown’s longtime Upper West Side estate.
Built in the 1920s by esteemed architect Emory Roth, the condo occupies four floors of one of the famed towers of the Beresford building on Central Park West.
The blush-toned living room features leopard print carpeting and a wraparound terrace offering impressive peeks of the park and skyline.
The bright red painted dining room is lined with plush banquettes and antique mirrors.
The master bedroom takes up an entire floor of the penthouse and includes bubblegum-pink shag floors and a private dressing room.
There’s also an en suite library as well as a top-floor observatory—framed by two spacious terraces—with 17-foot tall ceilings, arched windows, and panoramic views of the Big Apple.
