HOUSE OF THE DAY: Wall Street Tycoon And Milwaukee Bucks Owner Has Listed His NYC Duplex For $17 Million

Wesley Edens, founder of the equity firm Fortress Investment Group and owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, has just put his home of 20 years on the market for $US17 million, according to the New York Daily News.

With over 6,000 square feet of space, the pre-war classic Upper West Side duplex has six-bedrooms, four-bathrooms, and incredible views of Central Park.

As you can expect, it’s quite the exclusive home.

“This is a very discreet building,” Jay Glazer, one of the listing agents with Urban Compass, told the NY Daily News. “It’s not your 15 Central Park West. There are only two apartments per floor so it’s extremely private.”

Glazer and Landis Hosterman of Urban Compass are sharing the listing.

Welcome to 271 Central Park West on New York's Upper West Side.

The entryway looks directly into the formal dining room, which has a stunning chandelier and seating for 12.

The spacious living room has high ceilings and large windows that look right out onto Central Park (which is only one block away).

The 6,000-square-foot duplex has a very classic design. There is an abundance of great leather seating and wooden floors.

The designer eat-in kitchen has Uba Tuba honed granite countertops, custom cabinets, two full-size Sub-Zero refrigerators, and a a 6-burner Viking stove.

The two-story duplex has beautiful custom woodwork throughout.

The charming bathrooms are adorned with marble.

The master bedroom has plenty of room and two walk-in closets.

The townhouse has a total of six large bedrooms and all of them have views of Central Park.

The eccentric child's room is very colourful. The rug would make for a very difficult game of Twister.

And finally, here is one last glimpse of the lush view.
