Literary Lion's One-Bedroom Turtle Bay Penthouse Sells

New, 5 comments

That wraparound terrace belonged to late author and journalist Dominick Dunne. It, along with the rest of the one-bedroom penthouse at 155 East 49th Street, went on the market in December (Dunne died in August) asking $1.45 million. The Observer reports the place has sold for $1.2 million. The buyers are a German couple, George and Saskia Glatzel, and the Observer guesses the place will be their pied-a-terre. Take a look through the place in the old gallery. Did the slightly unfortunate bathroom-through-the-bedroom design get them that discount?
