Back in 2015, five-time Grammy Award-winning producer and Sony Music Entertainment’s chief creative officer Clive Davis bought two units at 465 Park Avenue for $3.4 million, combining them to create a contemporary, art-filled duplex for an unknown family member. However, just a year later, “things changed” for this relative, and he listed the pad for $7.8 million. Despite the super-swanky design and ritzy decor, he’s had a hard time unloading the home, and Mansion Global now reports that he’s chopped the price by 10 percent to $6,995,000.
After purchasing the apartments, Davis enlisted designer Greg Schriefer, who also happens to live in the building, “to create a contemporary and artistic version of a classic New York residence,” as 6sqft previously explained. He added white-washed oak herringbone floors, Italian marble windowsills, a custom spiral staircase adorned in white oak, glass, and brass, and, of course, surround-sound speakers. He also displayed Davis’ modern art collection, though that won’t be coming with the sale.
In total, the three-bedroom residence spans 2,800 square feet, with a gracious entry foyer, hidden wet bar, and a library.
The kitchen has brown quartzite counters, two granite sinks, custom two-toned cabinetry with brass fixtures, and travertine plank floors.
The bedrooms are on the lower level and all have en-suite baths. The master also boasts a walk-in dressing room and closet.
Davis, whose net worth is estimated to be $800 million, has reportedly owned several other units in the building for the past decade.
