Two of nation’s priciest homes ever sold sit empty

Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, the secretive buyer of the record-shattering $88 million apartment at 15 Central Park West, is in the middle of a protracted, contentious divorce. And the casualties are none other than his gorgeous properties, the New York Times reported.

The 15 CPW unit, which Rybolovlev bought from Citigroup Chairman Sandy Weill last year, has only one piece of furniture in it currently — a single lamp, the Times said. Rybolovlev’s daughter bought the apartment from her father through a trust he set up in February.

Trusts belonging to Rybolovlev’s daughter, Ekaterina, 22, also purchased a Palm Beach mansion with 475 feet of frontage on the Atlantic Ocean in 2008 from Donald Trump for $100 million, according to published reports. Ekaterina is the only family member to have visited the home, the Times said, and during her single visit, she stayed in the pool house. [NYT]
