Rumor has it that the apartment was once home to Nobel-prize winning author and playwright Sinclair Lewis. The new owner of the five-bedroom space, Zimbabwean founder and chairman of telecommunications group Econet Wireless, Strive Masiyiwa, is pretty prestigious himself. In 2015, Forbes named the businessman and philanthropist one of the richest people in Africa.
The expansive apartment was originally seeking $29 million but shaved $4.5 million off of its price tag seven months after debuting. In addition to its many bedrooms, the space offers six bathrooms, a huge open living/dining room and kitchen, wood-burning fireplaces, tons of closets, and four corner terraces, one being an enclosed solarium. Naturally, there’s a private elevator and sweeping panoramic views of Central Park.
