Located at one of New York City’s most prestigious addresses and the former home of a famed Wall Street financier, this duplex is fit for a king. Listed for $120 million, the 20-room duplex on the seventh and eighth floors of the Rosario Candela-designed building at 834 Fifth Avenue is the most expensive home on the market in New York City. The home of the late Salomon Brothers CEO John Gutfreund who died this year, it boasts unobstructed Central Park views, 12.5 foot high ceilings, hardwood flooring, and classic original moldings.
The first floor contains the palatial entrance gallery, small parlor, and dining room. Up the grand staircase, you’ll find the second living room with two fireplaces and a library lined with 17th-century leather walls. Also on the second floor, the 1,600-square-foot master bedroom comes with an original 1930s full marble and mirror bathroom, an attached sitting room, and dressing room with ensuite full bathroom. Tucked away throughout the unit are four staff quarters, a wine cellar, and two storage units. For more information, contact Brown Harris Stevens Residential Sales here.
