Dustin Hoffman Quietly Unloads San Remo Triplex

SELLER: Dustin Hoffman
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $21,018,500
SIZE: (approx.) 8,000 square feet on three floors

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: A variety New York property gossips reported last December that two-time Oscar winning actor Dustin Hoffman planned to unload his mansion-sized triplex at the famed San Remo building on Central Park West and now, thanks to a covert communique from Mister Wrinklebottom, Your Mama learned that Mister Hoffman did indeed and very quietly sell his multi-unit combination apartment in an off-market deal a few weeks ago to a mysterious buyer for, according to property records, $21,018,500.

Your Mama’s research on the internets turned up evidence that Mister Hoffman, who has owned at the San Remo since the mid 1970s, attempted to sell his gargantuan triplex back in the fall of 2002 when it was floated with an asking price of around $25,000,000. According to reports from the time, the approximately 8,000 square foot spread is an amalgamation of at least three units covers about half of the 15th floor and all of the 16th and 17th floors and includes four bedrooms, six bathrooms and two terraces.

The Central Park facing twin towered Art Deco building was designed by the legendary Emery Roth and finished in 1930. The former rental building, built on the site of a hotel that was also called The San Remo, went co-op in 1972 and its well-heeled residents enjoy white glove services that include two impressive lobbies, 24 hour doorman, private and semi-private elevator landings, a residents only health club, communal laundry facilities, and storage rooms.

Since at least the 1970s the high brow building has been occupied by a bevy of high profile people including (but not limited to) Steven Spielberg, Donna Karan, Glenn Close, Steve Martin, Tiger Woods, Diane Keaton, Tony Randall, Demi Moore, and Steve Jobs who sold a penthouse pad he owned and renovate but never lived in to uni-named rock star Bono. Back in the mid-1980s, at the apex of her early fame, Madonna tried to buy a three bedroom spread (listed for $1.2 million) but was rejected by board. (So the scuttlebutt goes Diane Keaton was the only member of the board who voted to approve the Material Girl.)

As far as Your Mama knows (and can tell from property records) the decorated Tinseltown veteran’s property portfolio still includes an expensive house in the natty Kensington area of London, of  a five bedroom and five bathroom contemporary residence on (quickly disappearing) Broad Beach in Malibu (CA) that he appears to have owned since at least the late 1990s, and, his primary residence in L.A., a four parcel compound of about two acres in quietly swank Brentwood that includes a 10,000+ square foot main residence, two additional residences (of unknown utility), extensive gardens and, a swimming pool and tennis court.
