Greta Garbo's eccentric former home hits the market

Greta Garbo's eccentric former home hits the market

Hollywood icon Greta Garbo's former New York home has hit the market for an impressive $7.25 million. 

The stunning three-bedroom, three-bathroom Manhattan apartment retains many of her personal touches and eccentric furnishings, making it stand out from other luxury homes. 

The apartment last sold for $8.5 million in 2017 after a fierce bidding war, with many fans of the Swedish-American actress expected to be vying for the property this time around. 

The home boasts large picture windows with spectacular views of the East River, which was said to have reminded Greta of her native Stockholm.

It also includes a newly renovated kitchen, dining room, many living areas, and numerous bathrooms, with most rooms boasting an impressive chandelier. 

The living room – which was Greta's favorite space – includes a gas fireplace and an attached den, while French doors at the far end open to a lovely balcony cooled by river breezes.

The primary bedroom suite features Greta's beloved rose-hued Fortuny silk walls and headboard, while a second bedroom includes a pink-and-green-accented V'Soske rug personally designed by the movie star.

Greta, who was best known for her roles in A Woman of Affairs, Anna Christie, Romance, and Camille,  died in 1990 at the age of 85, but retired from acting when she was just 35, leading a private life in her New York apartment for 50 years.
