1009 Fifth Avenue

In May, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, formerly the world’s richest man, listed his Upper East Side mansion at 1009 Fifth Avenue for $80 million — $36 million more than he paid for it just five years ago. But as of today, the property has been taken off the market.

Carlos-Slim-230The Real Deal reached out to listing broker Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty for comment and to ask if it will be coming on the market with a different price or broker, but she has not replied.

The property has been on the market for roughly eight months, which is not typical period for an exclusive listing.

Built in 1901, the eight-story mansion is one of the few remaining beaux-arts homes remaining on Fifth Avenue.

The facade extends 27 feet along Fifth Avenue and features a terrace that looks out onto the iconic Metropolitan Museum. Inside the property features high ceilings, hard-carved wood paneling, trompe l’oeil accents and an ornate, curved staircase that stretches for five stories.
