Disgraced billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen is putting his East Side penthouse apartment located at 151 East 58th Street in Manhattan up for sale again, this time for only $79 million, the New York Daily News reported. That is $36 million less than the $115 he sought for the same place back in 2013.
Deborah Grubman of the Corcoran Group has the listing.
The penthouse is located in a building called One Beacon Court, which is also known as the Bloomberg tower. It is the only duplex apartment there. It has a total of 16 rooms including 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 2 staff rooms, and one staff bathroom over 9, 000 square feet of living space. It offers full views of the city, Central Park, the rivers and has floor to ceiling windows and hardwood floors.
From the listing:
Charles Gwathmey’s vision was to create the most sophisticated, stunning and elegant apartment in New York City. The level of custom finishes throughout will astound you, from the minute you enter through the stainless steel door onto the magnificent white stone floor where your eyes are drawn to the glass and stainless steel staircase with the hand sewn leather railing. A soaring double height living room with 24’ ceiling and two walls of windows looks out onto unbelievable North and West views. These views are indescribable and seem to go on forever.
The living room hardwood floors are quarter-sawn maple and open into the dining room. White Venetian plaster walls, maple floors, Anigre wood and stainless steel are the key materials used throughout. The spectacular chef’s kitchen has the most amazing state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances appropriate for a restaurant and cabinetry with counters of honed black absolute granite. There is ample counter space for a professional chef and the large dining area in the kitchen can easily accommodate numerous guests. The walls of glass afford views of many of New York City’s most iconic buildings and bridges. Adjacent to the kitchen/dining area there is a spacious media/entertaining room with incredible custom built-ins.
