The late philanthropist Rachel Lambert "Bunny" Mellon had an impressive real-estate portfolio that included an Upper East Side townhouse, a 2,000-acre Virginia farm, and an estate on Antigua. But she also had a less well-known condominium at the Essex House on Central Park South, which was listed for $8.9 million in December and just sold for $8.3 million. Scroll down for a look inside.

The three-bedroom condominium is located on the 28th floor of the Essex House.


The historic 44-story building on New York City's Central Park South encompasses the JW Marriott Essex House hotel and 147 condo residences.

Mellon used it "primarily for business appointments and social gatherings when she visited the city," the New York Times reports.

She bought two adjacent units in 2000 and expanded the windows to better capture the striking Central Park view.

"On clear days, you can see as far as the George Washington Bridge and LGA Airport," the brokers noted.


Stanley Hancock and George Fesser of Spire Group shared the $8.9-million listing.

The apartment is 2,100 square feet.

It includes herringbone timber floors and coffered ceilings.

The kitchen has its own service entrance.


Residents can take advantage of JW Marriott amenities like the 24-hour concierge and room service.
