A Hotel des Artistes penthouse triplex is back on the market with a $7 million discount, Curbed reports. Originally listed for $19,000,000 in June of 2017, it was taken off the market in June of 2018 and has just returned for $11,995,000 (the monthly maintenance is $9,700).
The three-floor apartment measures 5,377 square feet and was designed by Ettore Sottsass, the late Italian founder of Memphis Design.
The current owner is also an important Italian man. Jean Pigozzi, whose father was the founder of the French car maker Simca, created LimoLand, a clothing and accessories line featuring bright colors and prints. He’s also one of the largest collectors of contemporary African art, an established philanthropist and photographer. source: Wikipedia.
Pigozzi apparently had some wild parties in this apartment, Curbed reports. Some celebrity guests included Mick Jagger and Michael Douglas.
So from the description of the figures and scenarios above, you can bet this apartment has some pizazz (or something) to it.
The nine room home comes with 3 bedrooms, 5 baths, a massive terrace and solarium, 18 foot ceilings, 15 foot windows and lots of colorful artwork.
