Bette Midler Shows Off Her Enviable Central Park Penthouse

Bette Midler Shows off Her Manhattan Abode Bette Midler, the iconic singer and actress who is often referred to as The Divine Miss M, invited Architectural Digest into her Manhattan apartment for a tour of its delightfully comfortable spaces and jaw-dropping exterior. Overlooking the Central Park reservoir, the three-story Fifth Avenue penthouse features impeccably landscaped wrap-around terraces and is decorated in a country-cottage-meets-big-city style. Bette Midler Shows off Her Manhattan Abode Designed by Fernando Santangelo, the home's décor is a harmonious combination of colors, textures, and furniture pieces from various styles and periods -- much to the homeowner's delight. "I don't make a study of anything -- if I fall in love with something, I want it," Miller told the mag. "For me, working in many media, it's hard to just do one thing." We can't tell if the home features a music room, but Bette, if you're reading, we will gladly join you for a cocktail on your terrace and an impromptu performance anytime.
