Olympic snowboarder Shaun White is ready to leave his New York penthouse behind.

White, who has won two gold medals,  listed his two-bedroom, 2.5-bath condo in the East Village. The 1,174-square-foot pad in The A Building has an open layout, with ceiling heights reaching over 12 feet high, per the $2.799 million listing held by Citi Habitats broker Steven Duggan.

The description is rather sparse, though the photos included reveal a somewhat modern interior aesthetic with what we assume must be a combination of White’s furnishings and a stager, as seen if you scroll through the photos above…or maybe White just liked the look of a crib and children’s toys underneath graffiti-esque art.

Aside from the questionable décor, the East Village perch looks perfectly nice, with its private patio and floor-to-ceiling windows. So, we’re surprised White wants to be rid of it so badly–he bought it for $2.895 million in 2014, so even if it sells at its current full ask, he’ll be talking a loss on it.

The eight-story doorman building was built in 2006, per the New York Post, and there’s a roofdeck with a 50-foot pool, wet bar and barbecue, as well as a gym…but maybe the snowboarding training there just wasn’t up to par.

If White’s penthouse in the building isn’t to your liking, there’s another celeb-approved abode there–the apartment Kelly Macdonald and Dougie Payne have been trying to sell since August last year is still lingering on the market.
