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.

Listed for $19,500,000, the Olympic Tower duplex is being brought to market by John Barbato with Stribling and Associates.
