The daughter of Bill Gates and his ex-wife, Melinda French Gates — Microsoft heiress, equestrian, medical school student and new mum Jennifer Gates — is living in a grand $US51 million ($74 million) Tribeca triplex penthouse with its own plunge pool.
The 827-square-metre pad, with 316 square metres of outdoor space, was bought via a Seattle-based trust connected to Gates last month, the NY Post can reveal.
The massive penthouse is at the celebrity-approved 443 Greenwich Street, and was formerly owned by Formula 1 race car champ Lewis Hamilton, who sold it to a different Seattle-based trust in November 2021 for $US49.5 million ($72 million).
Listing broker Nick Gavin, of Compass, declined to comment.
That initial purchase was recorded shortly after Jennifer Gates — who boasts more than half a million follows on Instagram — married Olympic equestrian Nayel Nassar in October 2021 at her 124-acre (50-hectare), $US16 million ($23 million) Westchester horse farm, which was a gift from her parents after she graduated from Stanford University.
Gates and Nassar have since celebrated the birth of their first child.
In 2018, Jennifer Gates’ parents also bought her a $US5 million ($7 million) apartment at 1212 Fifth Avenue, which had once been home to Carmelo and La La Anthony, The Post previously reported.
That unit is now for sale, as The Post reported in December, via the same Seattle-based trust connected to Gates.
Past and present celeb residents include Jennifer Lawrence, Meg Ryan, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, the Weeknd and more.
Hamilton first listed the penthouse for $US57 million ($83 million) in 2019 after buying it for $US43.99 million ($64 million) in 2017 and never moving in, as The Post also previously reported.
A former listing calls the penthouse the building’s “crown jewel”, with six bedrooms, six baths, two powder rooms, 20-foot-high (six metre) ceilings, multiple terraces and two parking spaces. (The building has just 15 parking spots.)
The home, which is the largest in the building, features its own elevator.
Design details include pine beams with steel fittings, 17 restored windows and a chef’s kitchen. There’s also a glass-encased top level with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and nearly 325 square metres of terrace space — with that plunge pool and outdoor seating — as well as an additional penthouse living room with a gas fireplace, a wet bar and a powder room.
Amenities include a 21-metre indoor pool, a gym with locker rooms, a Turkish bath and a 5000-square-foot (465-square-metre) landscaped roof terrace.
