Late this winter, the New York sky mansion of hedge fund tycoon Larry Robbins hit the market. Robbins, who has owned the Manhattan home for about two years, is asking $55 million for it, as evidenced by public records.
The Charles is a boutique condo building with 31 units located in the Lenox Hill area of the Upper East Side. The penthouse is the building’s crowning glory. The house was ultimately finished in 2014.
Robbins’ apartment is larger than the typical four-bedroom unit in the building, measuring in at over 12,000 square feet and boasting as many as eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There are four stories of living space, and while an elevator connects them, the more interesting way to move between them is via a freestanding staircase with solid balustrades and LED-lit treads. Listing details state that the home’s present-day layout is the result of five years of planning.
Floor-to-ceiling panes of glass or multiple panes separated by steel frames make up the majority of the home’s exterior walls. Natural stone, white oak, and Venetian plaster are abundant, and multi-pendant or contemporary chandeliers provide the home’s focal point lighting.
The fireplace and spa terrace on the penthouse’s top floor are just two of the many standout features of this home’s many unique rooms. The master suite on the 30th floor takes up half of the floor and features its own private office.
Forbes estimates that Robbins’s net worth is around $1.9 billion.
