Living in the fast lane certainly has its perks for Jeff Gordon.
The acclaimed NASCAR driver has racked in $150 million over the course of his racing career, so it seems only fitting that his Big Apple digs should go for $30 million, right?
The famed athlete, who’s ranked 12th overall in the Sprint Cup, just finished his 700th race and isn’t planning on making anymore pit stops in NYC, so he listed his Manhattan property for the hefty sum that’s, of course, located in one of Manhattan’s toniest locales.
And get this… Gordon bought the 3,454 square-foot penthouse palace in 2007 for a mere $9.7M. An extra $20 million is some serious ROI. The 3-bed, 3.5-bath modern concrete jungle escape welcomes VIPs with a chic foyer graced by 6-foot Santos Mahogany floors and over 46 feet of oversized windows to enjoy the priceless views of Central Park. The entryway opens up the living and formal dining rooms with Brazilian cherry wood floors, rich wood doors, and (a rare fancy feature) a black granite sushi bar.
The kitchen is just as elegant with steel-like Italian ceramic tile flooring, black granite counters and state-of-the-art appliances. What’s even more astounding is the fact that the master suite alone is bigger than most NYC apartments at 740-square-feet! The master also has a separate dressing room, 2 walk-in closets, and an en-suite limestone bath with soaking tub. The condo includes a private office and fully-integrated Creston system that controls all lighting, window shades and audio/visual components.
And the lucky new owner will live among some star-studded company – Sting, Denzel Washington, and Bob Costas are all neighbors who you may run into at… take a deep breath… the 14,000 square-foot fitness center, 750 foot sky-lit pool, spa, sauna, steam room, screening room, private restaurant, wine room, library, business center, game room, outdoor terrace, or children’s playroom.
