The race car driver next snapped up a property in Monaco for a reported $15 million. Just as with his Geneva property, not much is publicly known about Hamilton’s Monte Carlo home, except that it is likely situated in the elite Fontvieille district. According to reports, the racer’s residence includes a sun terrace, a steam room, and four bathrooms. Many major F1 drivers own properties in Monaco—one of the world’s smallest countries—for its quiet and calm, as well as its tax-free policy. Additionally, it is home to the Monaco Grand Prix, one of the most famous automobile races in the world. The pro athlete most likely also still owns this pad.
Despite his many enviable properties, Hamilton considers his residence in Colorado his home base and where he would want to retire. “I’ve never really been home [before],” he told the BBC in late 2020 of having to stay put due to the coronavirus pandemic. “In my winter, I go to the mountains [in Colorado], which I really see as my main home, because it’s a house and it’s full of love and memories from people, the family that come every winter.” By contrast, he said, he feels that his luxurious pads around the globe “[lack] those memories.” Hamilton has shared many glimpses into and around his house in recent years, including a peek into its wooden interior and photos of him enjoying breakfast on a sunny back deck and paddle boarding across clear water with his two bulldogs.
Hamilton’s foray into NYC properties includes a $43.9 million Tribeca penthouse that he reportedly never actually lived in. According to the listing, the three-story unit was the largest penthouse loft in a celeb-friendly building, measuring a whopping 8,908 square feet with an additional 3,426 square feet of outdoor space—a huge private rooftop terrace with a plunge pool and outdoor kitchen. (Stars like Harry Styles, Rebel Wilson, Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd, and Meg Ryan also have homes in the building.) A floating wooden staircase connects the first and second floors; there are five en suite bedrooms on the second floor and a terrace with a glass-enclosed entertaining room with a wet bar on the third floor. Hamilton initially listed the penthouse for $57 million in 2019 and eventually sold it for $49.5 million in 2021.
