The fact that the ultra-lavish townhouse of real estate investor Andrew Farkas was asking a whopping $42.5 million didn’t stop it from gaining a new owner. According to the Real Deal, the renovated 19th century home at 12 East 73rd Street has entered into contract after a six-month stint on the market.
Though the mystery buyer or the final sale price hasn’t been revealed just yet, it’s likely that the sale was quite profitable for Farkas, who paid just $23 million for the home in 2007. Before deciding to part ways with the place, Farkas tapped the same interior designer behind Robert A.M. Stern’s 70 Vestry, Daniel Romualdez, to give the home it’s now-luxurious finish.
There are over 10,000 square feet of space, along with five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, huge dressing rooms, ten (!!) fireplaces, a garden, staff quarters, and roof deck with views of Central Park.
