It's no wonder that with such a large fee a rider can afford to buy expensive real estate. This includes a luxury penthouse in New York. However, in early February the house was put up for sale. This is not the first time Lewis has attempted to bail out a large sum for an apartment. He already tried to do so in March 2019, but he never found a new owner.
What's inside the Hamilton Penthouse?
The three-story penthouse is located in a building built in 1882. It is located at 433 Greenwich Street, off the banks of the Hudson River. Model Bella Hadid, music artists Justin Timberlake, Harry Styles and The Weekend, actors Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal are said to also live in the luxury red brick building.

The building has an elevator, secure lobby, garage, laundry and health club, and outside the building is a courtyard. A doorman and a concierge are keeping order.
According to an ad on the real estate company's website, there are 15 rooms in the Hamilton apartment (with an area of 1146 square meters!). Among them are exactly 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Moreover, the master bedroom with a gas fireplace has a built-in spa with hydromassage, a dressing room and a living room with windows.
The living room on the ground floor is central part of the house. It seems to be divided into two separate relaxation spaces. It accommodates two sofas next to a coffee table and several armchairs at the other end of the room. In the center is a small black couch. The living room has a 6-meter-high ceiling and lots of natural light. It can be said that this is a distinctive feature of the whole house - it has many windows.
The lounge is combined with the dining room, which leads directly to the kitchen through sliding doors. It was custom designed by Christopher Peacock. Hamilton could not hesitate to gather all loved ones at dinner: the elongated table can accommodate more than six guests. In addition, the athlete had the opportunity to spend time with friends and colleagues at the kitchen counter.
Another living room on the second floor is less spacious, but it is in no way inferior to the first in beauty. Probably, on summer evenings, a Formula 1 racer sat on the couch and watched the sunsets from the panoramic window. It overlooks the Hudson.
For business matters and reading, Lewis could retire to the library or office. There are two armchairs for guests and one for the owner of the house behind a small work table. One of the walls is traditionally decorated with a painting - judging by the pictures, there are plenty of them in the penthouse.
The third floor of the house is a terrace with a small outdoor pool. Its area is as much as 318 square meters. Agree, the pilot had where to accelerate! By the way, the terrace can be reached either by stairs or by a private elevator that serves all three floors of the penthouse.

How much does a racer's house in New York cost?
The future owner of Hamilton's apartments will have to pay $ 52 million for them. A year earlier, the athlete wanted to sell the penthouse for $ 57 million, but this price did not attract anyone. In addition, the owner of the penthouse will have to pay a monthly property tax: it is $ 23.5 thousand. And that's not counting the maintenance! Its cost is $ 16.2 thousand per month.
It is not yet known whether it turned out to bail out money for the house this time. After all, the ad on the realtor's website has been hanging for almost two months, and a pandemic and an economic crisis have fallen on the whole world. But the fact remains: real estate in New York has always been in demand.
What other real estate does Lewis Hamilton own?
Last April Lewis bought another penthouse in New York, on Westry Street. Apartments in an elite condominium cost him $ 40 million. It includes an open area overlooking the Hudson, as well as a swimming pool, fitness center and squash court. Perhaps this apartment is a more suitable option fora fan of sports and a healthy lifestyle, which is Hamilton. And the new neighbors of the F-1 pilot are American football player Tom Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
It is said that in addition to housing in USA, Hamilton owns a mansion in British Kensington and an apartment in Monaco. Well, all that remains is to say that the six-time world champion in the most expensive sport can afford it.
