It isn’t just the $33.5 million price tag that puts billionaire Steven Cohen‘s Manhattan mansion in a class of its own. Located in The Abingdon, the home is a palace in the center of New York City’s West Village, designed specifically to showcase priceless works of art. The art is so valuable that in the photos of the triplex, the listing blurs out exactly what’s currently hanging on Cohen’s walls.
The Abingdon was built in 1906 and designed by architect Ralph S. Townsend. In 2013, it was given new life and converted into a boutique building, with about 10 large residences. Cohen’s luxurious unit, with five bedrooms and 9,600 square feet, includes a 1,200-square foot main bedroom suite.
Everything about the residence is larger than life, from the foyer, featuring 30-foot ceilings and a Carrara marble staircase, to the gallery walls, for displaying significant artwork with museum-quality lighting.
There’s also an entire parlor floor for entertaining and large windows throughout, framing incredible views of the West Village. Other high-end amenities include a guest suite, recreation room, private gym, laundry room, and library.
In addition to top-notch security, the home is outfitted with blackout shades and direct elevator access to each of the home’s three stories.
Cohen is a hedge-fund manager worth a staggering $13 billion, according to Forbes’ most recent accounting. With his fortune, he and his wife, Alexandra, have amassed an art collection worth an estimated $1 billion, including pieces by artists from Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns to Andy Warhol.
Cohen owns an equally impressive real estate portfolio. His Hamptons holdings include a $62.5 million beach house he bought and tore down. He also has a massive 35,000-square-foot Connecticut mansion that includes a main house, a neighboring home, a two-hole golf course, ice-skating rink, indoor basketball court, and indoor pool enclosed in glass.
Turns out this spectacular space isn’t even Cohen’s fanciest address. And while he waits to cut a deal, the rest of us can gaze on the photos of this landmark property and daydream about a life surrounded by this level of beauty and luxury right in the heart of Manhattan.
