It’s not the Metaverse, but it’s a completely renovated penthouse triplex in Soho — and Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, early Bitcoin billionaires, did it launch for the very real price of $16.95 million.
The stunning three bedroom, three and a half bath bachelor pad fully renovated is located at 20 Greene St., a seven story 1915 building in the historic Cast Iron District.
The twins – who went from a $65 million deal with Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook to starting their own bitcoin exchange and became NFT pioneers who founded their own Nifty Gateway digital art clearinghouse – bought the penthouse in 2014 for 14, 5 million dollars.
The 4,300 square foot loft features 2,200 square feet of expansive outdoor space and panoramic city views from Hudson Yards to the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building.
The penthouse opens to a semi-private elevator leading to the first level, with arched windows and high ceilings.
The twin billionaire crypto entrepreneurs wired the house smart, of course. It is anchored by a gas fireplace and gallery-length wall.
There is also an open chef’s kitchen and a floating staircase that takes you to the second and third levels.
On the second level, a steel and glass sliding door opens to a library/cave/media room with custom millwork, wall paneling, a gas fireplace and a dry bar. The first master bedroom suite is also on this floor.
The second level has two bedrooms and two large terraces. A wall of sliding glass doors leads to another terrace.
The third level features a wet bar and access to the largest terrace and sweeping city views.
The listing agents are Steven Cohen and Timothy Malone of Douglas Elliman.
