According to Fox, Streisand sold the penthouse18 years ago to its current owners for $US4.25 million.

Streisand isn’t the only celebrity who has called the penthouse home. Fox also confirmed to Business Insider that before the Ardsley started to sell its units, it served as a rental building where Lorenz Hart, a famous lyricist known for his partnership with composer Richard Rodgers from 1919 to 1943, rented the space.

The entire penthouse totals 6,236 square feet with 11- to 12-foot-high ceilings. It has four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a corner library, and a $US12,000 monthly maintenance bill, according to Fox.
