We suspect that once you’ve bought the second-priciest penthouse on Park Avenue, other abodes simply dark in comparison.
At least, that seems to be how French-born financier Raymond Svider feels. After picking adult the penthouse during 737 Park Avenue for $32 million, it was time to let go of his other Park Avenue widespread during a Mayfair.
Like his new penthouse during 737 Park, a six-bedroom, 6.5-bath headquarters during 610 Park Avenue is a prewar condo on Park—a relations monument among a sea of disdainful co-ops that line a avenue’s streets.
The sprawling blueprint is a outcome of a two-unit multiple combined by Mr. Svider and his wife, Frederique Albin, after they purchased dual adjacent apartments in a building.
“They paid $15 million for dual apartments in 2008, and embarked on a finish tummy restoration on tip of that $15 million,” Modlin Group’s Adam Modlin, who is pity a inventory with Kyle Blackmon at Compass, informed the Observer.
Mr. Svider, a co-chair and co-managing partner of BC Partners, motionless to list a 4,835-square-foot home for $21.95 million in 2015—just around a time he sealed on his new condo at 737 Park.
Sadly for Mr. Svider, he’s had to reduce his expectations a tad—after scarcely a year of going on and off a market, a unit is now listed for a partially insignificant $15.75 million.
Unlike his new penthouse, however, that was delivered as a “white box” but any interior walls or finishes (it does, however, have a fireplace!), a unit during a Mayfair is already embellished out. Along with north, south, and west exposures, it has a formal dining room and a chef’s eat-in kitchen, and a master apartment includes a walk-in closet, office, and a windowed bath with a apart sauna shower.
Per a listing, the home has been “meticulously renovated,” and from a photos, it looks quite nice, yet we can’t contend that orange immature is a tone we would select for chairs or accent pillows in this sold home. The halcyon lilac-accented bedroom finish with Philippe Starck chairs, on a other hand, is rather adorable.
When it comes to impending buyers, a brokers would do good to board their oenophile, or during slightest hard-drinking acquaintances—the home has an 800-bottle booze closet.
