An Italian playboy's penthouse sells

Flavio Briatore, impregnator of Heidi Klum and former Formula One team manager, just sold his Manhattan penthouse for a reported $18 million. Originally priced at $23 million, the 4-bedroom apartment was finished and decorated by Alberto Pinto. Being an Italian playboy obviously pays well.

Ha ha "impregnator," that was funny! That's definitely a bachelor pad, too bad he lost $5 mil on the sale! Really cool stuff, though, I mean, I would live there!

Ooh, you get extra credit for including the floor plan! I love a good floor plan. This one, however, has some weird stuff going on. What is with the (unnamed) second foyer? And the closets facing each other where one fabulous walk-in would do? Must be why it sold for $7 mil less.

Robin - That second foyer is the "Minglin' Space." Not sure about all of the separate closets, unless he categorizes by season.

thank you, thank you, I have been jonesin' for some real estate. And I get to see the Klum as well...ahhh. Flavio is a horrible name. and what is with the unbuttoned vest? Seal is a much better match for her.

Huh? That's all you get for $18 million?

Designers' Brew said...

Yeah, I agree with TDED... color me unimpressed, for that price tag! Very weird, choppy use of the space--and the kitchen is abysmally underscaled for an apartment of that size. I don't care if he never actually cooked, the kitchen should be more grand.

W/V: cocomo. Seriously.
