The heavily-decorated Lenox Hill townhouse where Eleanor Roosevelt lived in the '50s just sold for $9.5 million, a full $5 million less than the initial ask of $14.5 million. It's also less than the $10.4 million the previous owner payed for the place in 2004. Ouch! The four-bedroom, five-bathroom, two-half-bathroom home was purchased by one of those mysterious LLCs, this one called Root Tree 211.
A refresher on the floor plan, including a 700-square-foot garden (with fountain!), a 950-square-foot roof garden, six wood-burning fireplaces, and a sweet spiral staircase:
