UWS CELEBRITY REAL ESTATE NEWS: NASCAR Legend Jeff Gordon Lists 15 CPW Pad For $30 Million

Monday, May 13th, 2013

Legendary NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon is selling his Upper West Side condo at 15 Central Park West for a cool $30 million.

Mr. Gordon was one of the initial buyers at the building back in 2007, when he paid $9.67 million for the 3BR/3.5BA 3,454 square foot unit.

Prior to that, he had been renting an apartment elsewhere on the Upper West Side, although his primary residence is in Charlotte, NC.

The New York Times has some background information on the deal, and notes that when Mr. Gordon and his wife first purchased the apartment, it was merely “a big white box with high ceilings and stunning views of Central Park from the trio of oversize picture windows in its east-facing great room.”

As evidenced by the listing details below, it has since been completely customized:

This architect-designed three-bedroom three-and-a-half bath residence in the exclusive House section of 15 Central Park West, Manhattan’s most coveted condominium, is the pinnacle of luxury.

A painstaking, no-expense-spared renovation has ensured that every detail of this 3,454-square-foot home exudes modern elegance and comfort – from the rift-cut oak millwork to the fully-integrated Crestron system that controls all lighting, window shades and audio/visual components.

With its gracious layout, spectacular Central Park and city views, and top-of-the-line appointments, this unique turn-key residence instantly impresses with its welcoming entry foyer graced by 6″ Santos Mahogany floors with solid brass in-laid edging.

Entertain in the open living/dining room that showcases direct east-facing Central Park views from a wall of oversized windows spanning over 46 feet. A flamed absolute black granite Sushi Bar with a blackened steel countertop, wine fridge and mini bar is cleverly concealed behind American walnut diving fins adorned with patinaed brass inserts.

Create culinary delights in the chic eat-in chef’s kitchen, highlighted with plate steel-like Italian ceramic tile flooring, flamed absolute black granite counters and Miele/ Wolf/ Sub-Zero appliances.

Other distinguishing features include a discreet private home office, and a large master suite that measures over 740 square feet, with a separate dressing room, 2 walk-in closets and a luxurious ensuite limestone bath with Boffi soaking tub.

Designed by famed architect and historian Robert A.M. Stern in the tradition of Manhattan’s most prestigious apartment houses, the exquisitely limestone-clad 15 Central Park West sits in a prime location on Central Park at 61st Street, next to Time Warner Center, and close to Lincoln Center, the Theater District, and some of the world’s best shopping on Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Fully staffed and pet friendly, this white-glove building offers a landscaped motor court, garage, 14,000-sf fitness center with a 75-foot sky-lit lap pool, spa and sauna/steam rooms, screening room for 20 guests, private restaurant and catering, private wine rooms, library, business center, 1,400-sf meeting space, game room, outdoor terrace, and children’s playroom.

This apartment is offered by Halstead. In addition to the $30,000,000 asking price, monthly common charges are $4,846.80 and annual real estate taxes come to $28,500.
