Last week, the web was abuzz with the news that billionaire Russian oligarch Dmitry Ryoblovlev had given his 22-year-old daughter the gift to end all gifts–an $88 million apartment at 15 Central Park West that had previously belonged to ex-Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill.Now, rumour has it that the penthouse isn’t the only real estate Ryoblovlev bought at the storied building last week.

The New York Observer reports that he also paid $8.4 million for a two-bedroom apartment on the building’s third floor, apparently for use by daughter Ekaterina’s security guards.

Ryoblovlev flatly denies he was involved in the purchase, with a spokesperson telling the Observer:

Neither Dmitry Rybolovlev, nor his daughter Ekaterina Rybolovleva, nor any companies connected to them have purchased apartment 3F at 15 Central Park West, New York City. The reports suggesting that they have are completely inaccurate. There have never been any plans or even any discussions about purchasing this apartment.

But the Observer says it has sources who insist the apartment belongs to Rybolovlev.

In any case, the photos of the place are pretty impressive–and satisfy a small piece of the craving we had for a look inside Weill’s old apartment, which sold without ever producing listing photos.

The apartment is 1,987 square feet

It has North, South, and West exposures and a long hallway

It was sold by a healthcare exec who bought it in 2008 for $4.99 million

The place is ultra-modern

It has two bedrooms

And 2.5 baths

Here's the floorplan
