This duplex penthouse atop 325 East 79th Street sold for $5.3 million in 2005 (by the ex-wife of late wine mogul Christian Wolffer), but it didn't even try to top that when it returned to the market in early March, asking just $5.2 million. Perhaps the seller hoped to provoke a bidding war and get over $5.3M, but all that happened was that a buyer picked the place up at the asking price. That buyer is Google ad director and DoubleClick founder Christopher Theodoros. We hope the WiFi signal stretches to the terrace! If we were Theodoros, we might have tried to talk a coworker into a Google employee discount instead, but still, nice place.
