Gloria Vanderbilt’s New York City apartment is as eclectic as she was. The late artist, author, actress, fashion designer and socialite was an heir to the Vanderbilt family and mother of popular CNN anchor, Anderson Cooper. Although she passed away in 2019 at the age of 95, the colorful life she led is visible in every room of her home.

The Beekman Place property was listed for $1.12 million in July, and while an exact sale price has not been made public – as the sale has not yet been finalized (at the time of going to press) – the real estate agent says the property has many bids. has received that significantly above the asking price.

The house, now under contract, was built in 1931 and designed by George F. Pelham. The 10-story, 38-unit full-service building is located in one of Manhattan’s most exclusive neighborhoods and retains many of its original details, including the covered front entrance.

The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom Vanderbilt condo features an eat-in kitchen, library, and cozy fireplace. While living there, Vanderbilt filled the house with items that showcase her unique flair for art and design. The apartment, when it was listed, was still filled with these incredibly colorful and quirky objects and works of art.

Other building features include a 24-hour doorman, a new fitness center and access to the River Walk across the street. In addition, a two-bedroom ground-floor apartment that Vanderbilt used as her studio will soon be up for sale, but a price has not yet been announced.
