Self-made billionaire Leslie Alexander, who owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets, put his apartment in Manhattan’s Baccarat Hotel & Residences on the market for $21.5 million on Tuesday.
If it sells at the asking price, Mr. Alexander will make a small profit. He closed on the apartment for $20.6 million in 2015 after going into contract in 2013, public records show.
Mr. Alexander, with a net worth of $1.9 billion by Forbes’s estimates, made his first bucket of gold in trading bonds, but his main fortune comes from the Houston Rockets. He shelled out $85 million in 1993 to buy the team, which is currently valued at $1.5 billion.
Requests for comment sent to Mr. Alexander via Houston Rockets weren’t immediately answered.
The 4,545-square-foot apartment includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a powder room. It also features panoramic views of Central Park and the city skyline. Owners can enjoy “the ultimate lifestyle in Manhattan in this phenomenal full-floor residence,” said Douglas Elliman listing agent J. Roger Erickson.
The listing describes the apartment as featuring “a classic layout.” The entry foyer is decorated with a signature Baccarat chandelier. The spacious living and dining area connects with a chef’s kitchen with Miele and Subzero appliances. The corner master bedroom suite includes a bedroom-sized dressing room and a white marble master bathroom with soaking tub and radiant heated floors.
There are three guest bedrooms, each with en-suite marble bathrooms that are designed by world renowned interior designer Tony Ingrao. Wired for state-of-the-art electronics, the apartment has access to Baccarat hotel amenities through a touchscreen pad.
The Baccarat touts a number of amenities, including the Chevalier, a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Shea Gallante; Spa de la Mer; the Baccarat Bar; a full fitness center and a marble-clad pool with private cabanas.
