The Manhattan pied-a-terre of casino bigwig Steve Wynn appeared on the upscale East Coast real estate market this month.
The property, a penthouse in Central Park South with panoramic Park and city views, arrived with an asking price of $90 million. The residence’s consolations include 10,875 sq. ft. of living space, three bedrooms at least four baths, and a sense of style in keeping with Wynn’s opulent tastes (for further reading, check out his homes in Beverly Hills and Las Vegas).
The interiors of the palatial villa in the sky are designed with an eye cast firmly toward classicism, with arched windows, inlaid marble floors, and a Palladian sense of proportion. The ceiling heights are often breathtaking; a tour of the unit is oddly comforting, as spaces accumulate with a spirit of largesse and the expanse of Central Park unfolds beyond.
The unit’s living areas are distributed across a duplex layout. Incorporated within are a few notable historical details of the pre-development building: the Emery Roth-designed St. Moritz. High on the list is the living room, which was at one time the hotel’s ballroom.
Specialty rooms in the residence include a dedicated media room and a library. The kitchen is more or less ‘commercial revival’; a landscape of stainless that would make any successful chef feel quite at home, while the master suite incorporates a gym and spa, as well as an auxiliary bath in its dressing room. The unit’s terraces include a spot for warm weather breakfasting.
Wynn’s net worth is north of $3 billion, according to Forbes.
