Around two years after the death of the millionaire heiress and art collector Gloria Vanderbilt, her last luxury apartment is for sale.

She lived in the apartment for almost a quarter of a century.

The apartment in east Manhattan will be offered for around one million dollars, reported the "New York Times" at the weekend.

With two bedrooms, a dining room, a kitchen with a “breakfast room” and three bathrooms, the apartment is spacious, but needs to be renovated because that was last done in 1997, when Vanderbilt moved in.

The art collector decorated her apartment with "orange silk, lacquered pink walls, mirrored hallways, Russian icons and chandeliers with Christmas decorations hanging all year round," according to the New York Times.

She was happy to move furniture, decorate the walls with new art from her extensive collection and document her life in the apartment on Instagram.

Vanderbilt died in 2019 at the age of 95. Her great-great-grandfather Cornelius Vanderbilt (1794-1877) was the founder of a multi-million dollar steamship and railroad empire. She herself was a painter, art collector and designer - and also famous for her love affairs with men like Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra. Vanderbilt was married four times, their son Anderson Cooper is a presenter on the US news channel CNN.
