Wealthy Russian family lists gilded Plaza apartment full of onyx and crystal for $45M

Russian oligarch and co-owner of Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport Valery Kogan and his wife Olga Kogan have put their insanely opulent Plaza apartment on the market for $45 million. The billionaire couple bought two units in the iconic building in 2007/2008 for $26 million and then combined them, according to the Wall Street Journal. The massive home that they’re now trying to unload–which the listing describes as being “reminiscent of French royalty”–is dripping with gold detailing, crystal chandeliers, ornate moldings, and a master bathroom wrapped from floor to ceiling in imported onyx. It even has an alcove in one of the building’s turrets.

The sprawling L-shaped great room has at its corner one of the building’s famous turrets, which makes the perfect spot for a table-and-chairs nook. Here you’ll find the home’s signature paneled walls, crystal chandeliers, and elaborate inlay floors. This space also boasts custom built-ins and a scrolled iron screen.

Through a small corridor with a wet bar is the dining room and kitchen, the latter of which seems to not get much use considering its comparatively simple appearance and small size.

Off the dining room, one of the bedrooms is currently configured as a wood-paneled library.

At the western end of the apartment is the master bedroom, which features “designer wallcoverings.” The master bath is bathed in imported onyx and has a jetted tub, dual-sink vanity, and walk-in rain shower.

The southern end of the home holds two more bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms.

Throughout are views of Grand Army Plaza and Central Park.

Of course, $45 million is nothing to this wealthy family whose affiliated companies also own luxury apartments in condominiums at 15 Central Park West and 515 Park Avenue (in addition to their other world-wide holdings).
