Jack Welch, General Electric’s former chairman and chief executive, has listed his Upper East Side Manhattan condo for $25.9 million.
The business titan reportedly planned to sell the expansive four-bedroom home at swanky One Beacon Court via a whisper listing, but has apparently changed his mind. The home hit the public market on Monday, with top listing agents Deborah Grubman, David Adler and Paul Albano of Corcoran Group. The brokers were not immediately available for comment.
The renovated home spans two units near the top of the 54-story glass-lined building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and completed in 2004.
Mr. Welch, 82, bought the first of two units at One Beacon Court for $6.36 million in 2005 and added onto his spread in 2009, when he snapped up his neighbor’s unit for $8.3 million, according to property records.
He then employed acclaimed designer Tony Ingrao to marry the interiors of the two spaces, which include glamorous stone finishes, according to the listing.
The home opens into a foyer filled with exotic woods, onyx and marble, and a large great room with views over Central Park and the city from the 46th floor, according to the listing. There’s a wet bar and extensive wine storage.
The master bathroom is also clad in onyx with a soaking tub and double sinks.
The home’s extensive storage includes two wine caves, a cedar wardrobe and a climate-controlled closet, according to the listing.
Residents at the building have access to a slew of lavish amenities, including a fitness center and massage room, resident lounge and children’s playroom.
Mr. Welch could not immediately be reached for comment.
Wonder what he is doing with “children’s playroom”???
