Up for sale: Professional poker player Phil Galfond’s penthouse duplex in Manhattan’s East Village, which features a custom-made steel helical slide connecting the two floors.
The young at heart will love this quirky accent to an an otherwise perfectly beautiful, modern home. Designed by famed Japanese duo Kazuki Nakamura and Kenichi Izuhara, the top of the 18 foot tall slide is located in a designated office space on the upper floor, and will land in the dining and living area on the first floor.
Made from high grade stainless steel, the half-tube slide is of course not the only mode of transport between the two floors of the apartment: future owners will also enjoy a private keyed elevator to traverse between their 2,400 square feet suite. The penthouse also boasts four bedrooms, all equipped with their own adjunct bathrooms, an 18 foot atrium, a pool, a game room, a fitness center, private cabanas and a lush rooftop garden.
For the young at heart and those with well, young of their own, the apartment has reportedly been listed for an asking price of US$4 million.
