The Wall Street billionaire who was the inspiration for Gordon Gekko just bought a 2-bedroom apartment for $30 million that overlooks Central Park
Hill passed through the notoriously picky co-op board at 834 Fifth Avenue to buy the $30 million 2 bedroom apartment. It features 11.5-foot height ceilings, a real fireplace, and a staff wing.The building has some of the most expensive real estate in the city, and Jets owner and businessman Woody Johnson sold a condo in the building for $80 million last year. Rupert Murdoch also previously owned an apartment at the address.Advertisement
Hill's slicked back hairstyle is reportedly the inspiration for the physical appearance of Michael Douglass' character in the the 1987 film "Wall Street."
Serena Boardman of Sotheby's International Realty had the listing, which has since been taken down after selling.
The entryway of the apartment on the 10th floor the building opens to a grand gallery with marble columns and multiple chandeliers.
The living room features a working wood-burning fireplace and a gorgeous view of Central Park's treetops.Advertisement
The apartment is in immaculate condition. The moldings on the ceiling are hand carved.
The kitchen is enormously white, with expensive appliances and a washer/dryer.Advertisement
A breakfast nook sits off the kitchen.
The dining room doubles as a library.Advertisement
The apartment is a two bedroom, but both are generous master suites with en-suite bathrooms.
There's also a separate staff wing, with a maid's quarters.Advertisement
The Central Park views are what sell the apartment, however — and justify that $30 million price tag.
