Russian Billionaires Are Selling Their New York Homes

Alexey Kuzmichev, Russian billionaire and co-founder of the US-sanctioned Alfa-Bank, listed his Upper East Side quadruplex. Kuzmichev owns four floors of the landmarked Atterbury Mansion at 33 E. 74th St., which he has listed for $41 million. He originally bought his part of the home in 2016 for $42 million, according to New York Post. The entire mansion has seven stories, is 33 feet wide, and has all the amenities of a full-service condominium while remaining as a private single-family home.

His four floors make up 10,088 square feet, with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. There is even a private terrace. While the home was built in 1901 by the famous architect Grosvenor Atterbury, it was later restored and redesigned by the developer Daniel Straus. The mansion was part of a nine-building compound owned by the Whitney Museum of Art when New York City allowed Straus to gut the interior of the homes under the condition that he restored the facades without any major changes.

Luxurious amenities

Since updating the interior of the home, it has been filled with luxurious details. There are five-inch wide oak plank floors throughout, curved staircases, and south-facing floor-to-ceiling arched windows. When first entering the home, you are met with a large foyer finished with Chambord limestone and polished plaster, according to the listing. Off the first floor is the private terrace. The home also includes both a private and public elevator that opens on each floor.

A mansion couldn't be complete without luxurious amenities. Besides the full-time doorman and concierge, this home has a gym and a home theater. The chef's kitchen is designed with stone countertops, a vein-cut marble island, and low luster white lacquer cabinetry, as well as top-of-the-line appliances. This includes a Sub-Zero double refrigerator, double oven, and wine cooler. The parlor has over 12-inch ceilings and a fireplace, designed with neutral gray and cream colors and gold accents.
