NASCAR Racer Jeff Gordon Sells His Luxury NYC Pad at 15 CPW
The racecar driver put his three-bedroom condo on the market for $30 million. Two months later, he found a buyer.
Four-time NASCAR winner Jeff Gordon just sold his home at 15 Central Park West after putting it on the market for $30 million back in May. Though the closing price has yet to be revealed, Gordon stands to make a healthy profit since he bought the condo for $9.67 million in August 2007 — he was one of the first to go in on the Robert A.M. Stern building at the time.
So what does Gordon's seventh-floor abode have to offer? The racecar driver renovated the three-bedroom, 3.5-bath luxury condo after he bought it, introducing a lot of handsome touches: Brazilian cherry wood floors, black granite counters, rift-cut oak doors. The living room offers 46-foot-wide views of Central Park, which you can enjoy while sitting at the granite-and-steel sushi bar (complete with a concealed wine fridge and mini bar).
If $30 million seems a bit steep for a three-bedroom condo, even in a building as reputable as this one, keep in mind that #7D, which is only slightly bigger, sold for $32.5 million in December (though that was down from the original asking price of $36 million). Gordon, whose primary residence is in North Carolina, told the New York Times that he was selling now because "the demand for trophy apartments is pretty strong."
