A 7,750-square-foot duplex atop the Olympic Tower in midtown Manhattan recently came to market for a hefty $19.5 million. And of course it comes with its own celebrity angle.
Once home to Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway — who shared it with her then-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri — the apartment is located in the legendary Olympic Tower, designed by Jackie O’s second husband Aristotle Onassis. Anne Hathaway and Raffaello Follieri famously paid $37,000 in monthly rent for the massive Olympic Tower spread, not long before the couple split up and Follieri was sent to jail in 2008 for fraud and money-laundering.
If you think Anne Hathaway’s rent was over-the-top at $37k/month, know that the Olympic Tower duplex resurfaced on the rental market in 2016 for whopping $48,000/month.
The 11-room duplex is one of the largest homes in the Olympic Tower building. The 7,750 square feet space is split over two levels, with the first hosting a ballroom-sized 41-foot long corner living room with wet bar, a formal dining room, a chef’s eat-in kitchen with marble counters, breakfast room and a 34-foot library/media room with 8 ft. projection screen.
The corner master suite is on the 2nd level and features 2 full bathrooms and walls of custom closets. Two additional bedrooms, each with en-suite baths, complete this floor. There is a professional sound system throughout and numerous deep storage closets on each floor.
The apartment comes with great Central Park views to the North, the East River to the East and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Empire State Building and beyond to the South.
Listed for $19,500,000, the Olympic Tower duplex is being brought to market by John Barbato with Stribling and Associates.
