Formula One Champ Lewis Hamilton Gives Up One of His Two Luxury NYC Apartments
Widely known as one of the greatest drivers in racing history, British Formula One race car driver Lewis Hamilton has been collecting world championships over the years and currently has six under his belt. His successful career and countless brand endorsements have enabled him to earn a net worth of around $285 million.
He’s not just snapping up accolades; Lewis also maintains a pretty impressive real estate portfolio. Born in the United Kingdom, it’s not a surprise that the 35-year-old racer has a mansion in Kensington, London. He also maintains luxurious properties in Geneva and Monte Carlo. However, it looks like he’s letting go of his luxury apartment in a building in Tribeca, New York City, an address popular among Hollywood celebs.
Hamilton first purchased the three-floor residence in 2017 for $44 million. Now, he is selling it for $52 million. This is not the first time he has tried to sell the property, though. In March 2019, he listed it on the market for $57 million.
Aside from its 8,908-square-foot living space, the NYC apartment also has 3,426 square feet of outdoor space through its private rooftop terrace that boasts of a plunge pool and an outdoor kitchen. The spacious interior has 20-foot ceilings and a custom-designed chef’s kitchen by renowned British kitchen designer Christopher Peacock.
To reach the second floor, you have to climb up a floating wooden staircase that leads to 5 en suite bedrooms. Its master bedroom has a gas fireplace and a windowed dressing room. The spa-styled master bathroom is equipped with a large deep-soaking tub complemented with a patterned marble wall. It also has a glass-enclosed steam shower and a steam sauna.
The uppermost floor is where the terrace is located. It serves as a perfect spot to entertain guests as it has a glass-enclosed entertaining room, a wet bar, and a powder room.
The apartment has building amenities that include a 24-hour doorman and concierge, a children’s playroom, an indoor pool, and a Turkish steam bath or hammam. The listing also includes two parking slots.
Famous neighbors include celebrity couples Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. Model Bella Hadid and singer-beau The Weeknd also lease a penthouse for $60k a month.
Even though Hamilton has the largest penthouse in the building, he reportedly hasn’t lived there.
Aside from this property, he also owns another New York apartment. He purchased it in 2019 for $40.7 million. He probably fell in love with its gorgeous views of the Hudson River.
Hamilton is still active in the Formula One scene and is currently under contract with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport until 2020.
