Even though Nascar superstar Jeff Gordon spends most of his time in North Carolina, he was one of the early buyers at celeb favorite 15 Central Park West, buying a three-bedroom on the 7th floor for almost $10 million back in 2007. After a complete and careful renovation from a white-washed blank slate to a decadently ornamented apartment, the Times reports that Gordon and his wife Ingrid Vandebosch are putting it back on the market for a whopping $30 million. Halstead, the brokerage that sold him the pad in the first place, has the official listing.
Here's a partial roundup of the innumerable intentional details within this carefully decorated 3,500-square-foot pad with Central Park views: Brazilian cherry wood was picked for the floors; bronze inlay lines the foyer; black granite abounds everywhere; and there's an oak-and-blackened-steel sushi bar centerpiece in the living room. A lot of careful, custom work has gone into it, so why sell? Well, Gordon has racked up plenty of racing trophies already, so perhaps he's ready to let go of one of the city's trophy apartments.
