Owner of Interior Designer's Triplex Co-op Attempts Flip

New, 7 comments

This Upper East Side co-op belonged to interior designer John Morton Levine until his death in 2008, at which point it was purchased by a man named Ronald Jay Cohen (possibly the author of several psychology books) for $2.3 million. At the time, Cohen was residing in a fourth floor unit in the same building and he must have coveted Levine's awesome pad with its plethora of custom built-ins. He got it, but now, four years later, Cohen is coveting something else: a cool one million dollar profit. He's re-listed the apartment for $3,295,000 and he just might get it, as this apartment, to put it simply, definitely looks like it could have belonged to an interior designer at one point. Highlights include the two wood-burning fireplaces surrounded by custom cut Basaltina stone, the zebra wood bar overlooking the living room, and the 170-bottle wine storage shelves that were featured in Wine Spectator Magazine (Wine Spectator: For people who just like looking at wine?)
