With an intramarital lawsuit looming, the stratospheric Manhattan penthouse of Fastweb and SHS founder Silvio Scaglia and his ex-wife, designer and My Unorthodox Life focal point Julia Haart, entered the high-end New York real estate market this summer as both a potential rental and sale. The 7,808 sq. ft. property is priced at $65 million for those who’d like an extended stay, and $125K per month for those who would like less of a commitment.

The duplex residence, which contains five bedrooms and at least five baths, is located at 70 Vestry, a condo complex designed by Robert A.M. Stern and completed in 2018. 70 Vestry, one of the preeminently fashionable addresses in the city, has housed a long list of familiar names, including football champ Tom Brady and model Gisele Bundchen, and race car driver Lewis Hamilton.

The upper-floor living room is the gem of this unit. As a primary destination space, is in unusually well realized, and substitutes the ostentation of a veneer of high-dollar materials with a design sensibility that echoes the most prominent landmark of its views: the Hudson. The room itself seems to suggest the wide-open plain of the river, while the walls and the partitions between the floor-to-ceiling glass installations have been given a coat of mottled blue that playfully and archly suggests the water in motion below.

Also taking advantage of the water views: the study and office, located on the lower level, the latter of which features floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves decorated with inlay. The terraces, which extend from both floors, represent the final word for the property as a turnkey New York lifestyle solution, however. The complex of outdoor living spaces measures in at 3,687 sq. ft., with views offering a panorama of the city.

Scaglia’s net worth was estimated at $1 billion by Forbes back in 2010.
