You likely know plenty about Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but did you know her father is a very prominent, very wealthy businessman? William Louis-Dreyfus is the chairman of Louis Dreyfus Energy Services and the great grandson of Léopold Louis-Dreyfus, founder of the Louis Dreyfus Group. He has an estimated net worth of $3.4 billion, and just made an impressive $7.1 million on the sale of his Upper West Side co-op, according to city records released today.
Unit 9C at 262 Central Park West is a three-bedroom apartment with ten large picture windows and panoramic views of Central Park. And the sleek interior must have been pretty impressive in person, as the selling price is well over the $6.75 million asking price.
An elegant foyer complete with built-in cherry display cabinets and a Venetian plaster art wall welcomes guests to this magnificent home. The adjacent living and dining areas are perfect for entertaining, as is the gourmet eat-in kitchen, which comes complete with sycamore custom cabinetry, granite countertops, an Italian tile backsplash, a walk-in pantry, and high-end appliances.
Both sunny bedrooms have custom closets and en suite bathrooms with spa-style limestone, poured concrete sinks, a Japanese soaking tub and spa showers with views of the park. The third bedroom also has its own bath as well as a cherry wood Murphy bed and a customized built-in office area.
The building, the White House, is one of Central Park’s most prestigious white glove co-ops. Built in 1929, it stretches the entire block from 86th to 87th Streets and has 85 units. Amenities include a full-service gym, playroom and half basketball court. We wonder if Julia and her kids are going to miss visiting William at this amazing apartment, or if he’s upgrading to something even better…
