Former Google CEO, and current chairman, Eric Schmidt spent $15 million to buy a penthouse apartment in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighbourhood, the New York Post reports. 

The apartment is a 6,250 square-foot duplex with four bedrooms, and a 3,300 square foot terrace. He also reportedly spent millions to have the place soundproofed because, according to a Post source, “he doesn’t sleep well.” 

The Post says Schmidt, who is in an open marriage, is dating two women in New York City. 

A source familiar with his home purchase told the Post, “While everyone in New York wants a doorman, Eric specifically said he didn’t want one. He doesn’t want anyone to see him and his guests coming in and out. He insisted on his own elevator.”

Its a wide open concept. To the right is a semi-floating staircase.
