Inside the $80 Million Home of the World’s Second-Richest Man

Inside the $80 Million Home of the World’s Second-Richest Man: Sotheby's International Realty

Sotheby's International Realty

When Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim put his 20,000-square-foot mansion on the market this spring, listing agency Sotheby’s International Real Estate only released a few photos of the house’s facade. Now, interior photos of the New York City townhouse have finally been released, and they’re nothing short of incredible.

Befitting of a home of the world’s second-richest man, the landmarked Beaux-Arts masterpiece has 25 rooms, five floors and 11 fireplaces. Originally built in 1901, the townhouse is referred to by its official name, Benjamin N. and Sarah Duke House.

Check out Slim’s former pad below, which not only has terrace views of its neighbor, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but also hand-carved, wood-paneled ceilings, iron staircases and ornate windows that drench the house in sunlight.
