Clive Davis, five-time Grammy Award-winning producer and current chief creative officer of Sony Music Entertainment, has an estimated net worth of $800 million, and when you’ve got that kind of cash, you can apparently buy seven-figure trophy co-ops and never live in them. Which is exactly what LL NYC reports he did at 465 Park Avenue, where in 2015 he bought two units for $3.4 million and combined them into one sprawling duplex. He then enlisted designer Greg Schriefer to create a contemporary and artistic version of a classic New York residence, and now that the renovations have been completed and that “things changed” for the unknown family member for whom he bought the home, it’s hit the market for $7.8 million.
Some of the posh details that come courtesy of Schriefer (who also lives in the building) include white-washed oak herringbone floors, Italian marble windowsills, and a custom coiled staircase adorned in more white oak, glass, and brass. Throughout, Davis’ impressive modern art collection is expertly displayed.
Enter through a gracious foyer that boasts a hidden wet bar and leads to the huge, open living/dining area.
In the kitchen you’ll find brown quartzite counters, two granite sinks, custom two-toned cabinetry with brass fixtures, and travertine plank floors.
Downstairs are three bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bathrooms. The master comes complete with a walk-in dressing room and closet.
Apparently, Davis also owns other units in the building, so he may not be house hunting just yet.
