This luxury penthouse, one of America’s most expensive apartments, was bought for $43.7 million in 2007 by the former head of Citigroup, Sanford Weil, who was reportedly one of the 25 people responsible for the 2008 world financial and economic crisis. In 2001 the Weils decided to move downstairs to the 6th floor and give the apartment to charity! Nevertheless, in 2012 they sold it for $88 million to Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev who bought it for his daughter, Ekaterina.
This spectacular compound is nestled on 11.69 acres in an exclusive quarter of the gated beach and golf resort of the sea island of Kiawah, on America’s Atlantic coast. Featured in The Wall Street Journal and praised in one of the 2009 Architectural Digest issues as a masterpiece in custom building on account of its matchless craftsmanship, the luxury residence unfolds over 15,000 square feet on expansive wooded grounds with wonderfully landscaped gardens.
