Some lucky multimillionaire now has the chance to acquire a New York home designed by one of the most sought-after architects and designers working today. Thierry Despont has listed his five-floor Tribeca townhouse for $24.99 million. Originally built in 1915, the space was purchased by the AD100 Hall of Fame member 25 years ago. He turned it into a single-family home that looks just like you’d expect for a man who has designed for Calvin Klein, Bill Gates, and high-end hotels like the Carlyle and Claridge’s.

The first floor is home to an art studio and a foyer where one can take the stairs or elevator up to the remaining floors. There are four bedrooms in total in the dwelling, the primary suite taking up an entire floor (it includes a marble bathroom, dressing room, sauna, and walk-in closet) and the remaining three each equipped with their own bathrooms and kitchenettes.

The fourth floor consists of a black, white, and chrome-decorated chef’s kitchen and a formal dining room which, as it appears in the listing photos, is currently being used as a billiards room. The wallpaper in this room features a large yellow, black, and maroon plaid print, evoking the feeling of a quirky clubhouse. The entire fifth floor is dedicated to a high-ceilinged great room that almost looks like it could be part of an Hermès store, with orange-ish wood paneling on the walls, a fireplace, a small library’s worth of built-in bookshelves, a piano, and chandeliers.

In addition to the private bathrooms in each bedroom, there are two additional half baths for guests. Down below the first floor, there are two wine cellars and a laundry room. And if the new owners want to expand, the purchase includes air rights to add a sixth floor to the building.
