Oprah-Owned Midtown East Penthouse Sells for $7.9 Million

New, 6 comments

Back in 2008, Oprah?or possibly her BFF Gayle King, with Oprah's help?purchased a penthouse at East 57th Street's Place 57. Oprah spent just over $7 million on the place, which returned to market in February with pics and brokerbabble suggesting it had barely been lived in. Now the buyer's broker tells The Real Deal the apartment has sold for the asking price of $7.9 million. The buyers, London-based hedge fund dude Mark Hillery and his wife Melissa, plan a "high-end" renovation that will "open up some of the spaces and take advantage of the magnificent views."
