An heir to one of the largest beer industry fortunes in the world has found a home at a tony address on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Carlos Alejandro Pérez Dávila, a Colombian businessman and member of the Santo Domingo family—whose stake in brewing behemoth SABMiller has made them billionaires—bought a full-floor apartment at a Fifth Avenue building for $55 million, according to property records filed May 11.
The 22-room apartment had been owned by Robert Ellsworth, a noted Asian art dealer who died in 2014. Masahiro Hashiguchi, the executor of Ellsworth’s estate—and his former live-in chef—was the apartment’s seller, records show.
The expansive co-op includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms, several fireplaces, a library and eight maid’s rooms, according to the listing.

The 12-story building, built in 1927, has long been home to prominent residents. According to the Real Deal, which first reported the sale to Mr. Pérez Dávila, Egyptian construction magnate Nassef Sawiris bought a penthouse in the building from financier Edgar Bronfman for $70 million in 2014.
Mr. Perez Davila and Mr. Hashiguchi could not immediately be reached for comment.
