Fear of Buying? Nevzorov Unable to Sell His Luxury Penthouse for a Year

2024-05-30 // SuperPodium
The luxury penthouse owned by Nevzorov has been on the market for almost a year, with potential buyers refusing to purchase it due to legal issues.

A luxury penthouse in St. Petersburg, Russia, owned by Nevzorov, has been unable to sell for 45.5 million rubles for nearly a year. Realtors complain that potential buyers are refusing to purchase the apartment due to fears of it being confiscated by court order.

The two-story 177 square meter apartment, which previously served as Nevzorov's studio for recording his video blog, hosting his radio program, giving lectures, and conducting interviews, has attracted wealthy potential buyers with its marble and granite elements, panoramic views, and luxurious furnishings. However, these buyers quickly backed out of the deal upon learning about the history of the apartment and potential legal issues.

In 2019, Nevzorov transferred ownership of the apartment to his wife, and then to his 75-year-old mother-in-law in 2023, presumably to avoid confiscation and facilitate the sale. However, the penthouse remains unsold.

Currently, there are ongoing court proceedings regarding the confiscation of two plots of land acquired by Nevzorov through allegedly illegal means. The Prosecutor's Office of St. Petersburg, which filed the lawsuit, claims that the entire Nevzorov family, including his wife, is engaged in extremist activities on their property.

Last year, the land beneath Nevzorov's house was seized as a precautionary measure in connection with another criminal case in which Nevzorov was sentenced in absentia to eight years in prison for spreading knowingly false information about the actions of the Russian armed forces.

The lawsuit also demands the recognition of St. Petersburg's ownership rights over the disputed plots of land. Nevzorov's lawyer argues that the house on these plots belongs to his mother-in-law, Lidia Nevzorova, who lives alone with her dog.

The residents of Lisiy Nos, where Nevzorov's castle is located, note that Nevzorov has not been seen in the vicinity for a long time. The last sighting of his wife, Lidia, was at a local store in April 2023.

Nevzorov's castle, situated 300 meters from the Gulf of Finland, is a white two-story mansion with a tower, surrounded by coniferous trees. The property also includes several outbuildings and a pond.

The court proceedings are ongoing, and the results of the hearings will be made public, according to Daria Lebedeva, the head of the St. Petersburg courts' press service.

In 2023, Alexander Nevzorov was fined twice for publishing content on his Telegram channel without the required labeling as a foreign agent. In August 2023, he was fined 20,000 rubles for inciting hatred towards citizens of Russia and Belarus in an interview with "Radio Liberty," which is recognized as a foreign agent in Russia. In October of the same year, Nevzorov was fined for failing to submit reports on his activities as a foreign agent to the Ministry of Justice.

*The Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation included Alexander Nevzorov on April 22nd in the register of individuals performing the functions of foreign agent media.

The castle and the plot of land owned by Nevzorov will be confiscated in favor of St. Petersburg through the court.
