A townhouse at 11 East 69th Street has sold for a whopping $53.5 million, The Real Deal reports, making it NYC’s largest townhouse sale of the year (just ahead of Jeffrey Epstein’s former 28,000 square foot mansion at 9 East 71st Street, which sold for $51 million).
The seller of the new record-holder was real-estate investor David Levinson, who purchased the property for $9.5 million in 2004. The property was previously an office building housing non-profit organization American Friends of the Hebrew University. Levinson spent $20 million in renovations, according to The Real Deal.
The 18,000 square foot mansion features six bedrooms, ten bathrooms and a rooftop solarium.
