Curly-haired cryptocurrency whiz Sam Bankman-Fried, better known as SBF, is not on the favorites list of many affected by the collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX. What did make it to the list, surprisingly, was the vegan entrepreneurs’ insanely luxurious penthouse in the Bahamas. A listing featuring the mansion-sized penthouse of SBF and his ten roommates atop the Albany resort complex in Nassau went viral. Fortune cleared the air about the viral real estate listing stating it was fake. The real estate firm portrayed it as a web malfunction and took the page down. For all we know, it could be an angry investor taking revenge by listing Sam’s home. While the listing was bogus, the house was not. The Nassau penthouse, which popped up with a handsome price tag of $39.5 million, is equal parts enchanting and modern and deserves a closer look-

The magnificent 12,000-square-foot penthouse comprises five-bedroom and six-plus-bathroom overlooking breathtaking views of Albany complex’s private marina and the Atlantic Ocean.

Even the bathroom looks like an extension of the beautifully designed home. It looks spotless and spectacular, a vision in white Italian marble with a minimalistic bathtub and seating at the two polar ends of the room. The enormous black chandelier adds a gothic yet glamorous touch to the space.

The property is decorated with an LED lighting system and a private garage. The house was shared by Bankman and his girlfriend, Caroline Ellison, plus eight college friends who helped to set up FTX.

The stunning residence was put up on the market for $39,950,000, along with an eye-watering fee of $21,000 for maintenance.

Of all the things Sam Bankman perhaps loved and lost or still owns, this ultra-luxe residence in the Morris Adjmi Architects-designed Orchid building, with its arched filigree screen enveloping the wrap-around terrace, would be the most beautiful.
