Marcus Lemonis Buys UES Townhouse with Sordid Past

Last month, we reported that 34 East 62nd Street – a single family home built in 2011 at the former site of a townhouse which had been blown up by Dr. Nicholas “Dr. Boom” Bartha in 2006 – had been sold for $20 million.

Now, the New York Post reveals that the buyer of the property was Marcus Lemonis, businessman and star of CNBC’s “The Profit,” a series which documents Lemonis investing in and saving companies around the country.

The home had been discounted from an original asking price of $32.5 million in 2017. It’s last asking price was $19,750,000. The monthly taxes are $20,914, according to Streeteasy.

The property measures about 9,200 square feet and comes with ten bedrooms.

Lemonis, 47, purchased the townhouse with his wife, Roberta “Bobbi” Fenchel, 68.

Bartha blew up the former townhouse to avoid a $4 million divorce settlement with his wife; he succumbed to his injuries and was killed by the explosion.
