Russian billionaire lists villa worth $41m as bank faces sanctions

Billionaire Alexey Kuzmichev, co-founder of US-sanctioned Alfa Bank, has listed his quadruplex in the landmark Atterbury Mansion on the Upper East Side for $41 million.

Kuzmichev bought his piece of the seven-story, 33-foot-wide house at 33 E. 74th St., in 2016 for $42 million, as we previously reported. His neighbor is Bob Iger, ex-CEO of The Walt Disney Company, who owns the penthouse.

At the time it seemed like a steep price as it wasn’t even for the whole villa. The stunning residence was built in 1901 by famed architect Grosvenor Atterbury for another banker, Julian Wainwright Robbins and his wife Sarah, Cornelius Vanderbilt’s niece.

Later, the mansion was part of a nine-building complex owned by the Whitney Museum of Art and restored and remodeled by developer Daniel Straus. The city granted Straus the right to gut the interiors as long as he preserved and restored the listed facades.

Kuzmichev’s four floors make up 10,088 square feet in neutral gray and cream tones, along with wide oak plank floors throughout, according to the listing. The apartment, equipped with its own internal elevator, opens onto a limestone and plaster entrance foyer and leads to large entertaining spaces.

There is a large kitchen, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and three guest toilets. The “living room” floor features 12-inch-plus ceilings, with floor-to-ceiling arched windows and a large private terrace on the first floor.

Kuzmichev also owned a $15.5 million, three-bedroom condo in an adjacent building that he wanted to consolidate — but he sold it for more than $16 million last year. Stockbroker is Richard J. Steinberg of Compass.

Kuzmichev is worth an estimated $6.1 billion, according to Forbes. but Russia experts tell the Post it could be worth a lot more. But since Monday Kuzmichev has resigned from LetterOne’s board of directors (an international investment firm based in Luxembourg), which he co-founded with Mikhail Fridman and Pyotr Aven after the EU reportedly imposed sanctions on Fridman and Aven. (The US also sanctioned Alfa-Bank, the largest private bank in Russia.) Kuzmichev’s unsanctioned co-founders of LetterOne, German Khan and Andrei Kosogov, quit with him.
