Barbara Walters' longtime New York City property on the Upper East Side is back on the market.

According to its listing, the five-bedroom, five-bathroom Manhattan home became available again on Jan. 9. The property had found a buyer last November after being put on the market that April, but the "buyer walked away from a signed deal and a hefty deposit," per the New York Post.

The home is currently listed at $16.99 million. It initially hit the market, priced at $19.75 million, and previously entered a contract at $17.75 million. Alexa Lambert of Compass holds the listing.

The property is on the sixth floor of a historic 1925 14-story building designed by architect Nathan Korn in an Italian Renaissance palazzo style, with views of Central Park. The legendary journalist and creator of The View lived in the home for 30 years until her death in December 2022 at age 93.

"Barbara Walters passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones. She lived a big life. She lived her life with no regrets. She was a trailblazer not only for female journalists but for all women," her representative Cindi Berger told PEOPLE after Walters' death.
