A Ukrainian-born tequila mogul puts his New York beach mansion on the auction block.
Edward Geyman, founder of Laneta Tequila – and CEO of glassmaker Carvart – is auctioning his home April 27 with Misha Haghanis Paramount Realty in partnership with stockbrokers Victoria Shtainer of Compass and Samuel Horowitz of Samuel Realty Group.
He says he is auctioning the house to attract a “unique buyer” and that the sale has nothing to do with the ongoing war in Ukraine.
The home at 151 Beach 146th St. is in Neponsit, a beach community in Queens, and the “suggested” opening bid is $4.5 million. Originally asked for $7 million.
At 6,500 square feet, it offers views of the Atlantic and outdoor space from all five bedrooms.
The home was built in 2007, “just steps from the beach,” and could not be duplicated at a similar price, the realtors note.
The mansion features an indoor and outdoor pool, sauna rooms and a rooftop terrace with sea views.
There is also a formal living and dining room, private elevator and white marble staircase with a handcrafted iron and walnut staircase.
Design details include balconies, a porch, crown and crown molding, columns, hardwood floors, marble mosaics, high ceilings, and oversized windows.
Geyan’s father, a third-generation glass craftsman, founded Carvart when he emigrated from Ukraine.
The company now makes everything from pandemic-friendly partitions for restaurants like Electric Lemon to glass from Hudson Yards for new luxury homes, with customers ranging from Christian Dior to an Austin, Texas airport.
Geyman founded Laneta Tequila during the pandemic and designed the glass bottle; The distillery is located in Mexico.
