Miramax Films co-founder Bob Weinstein, the brother of disgraced film executive Harvey Weinstein, has found a buyer for his expansive Upper West Side brownstone. According to the latest Olshan real estate report, the five-bedroom townhouse at 39 West 70th Street entered contract last week.
It was originally listed for $19 million when it hit the market in February, but the asking price has, unsurprisingly, dropped since then; it went into contract at a slightly lower $17.9 million.
Weinstein purchased the 6,600-square-foot townhouse for $15 million in 2009, and it comes with a plethora of ridiculous features that you’d expect from a multi-million dollar Upper West Side home. In addition to its many circa-1910 (or, at the very least, period-inspired) details—the original wooden staircase, wide-plank flooring, “period-correct doors and moldings”—the home also comes with a roof deck, several fireplaces, a huge kitchen, and a gym with a half-sized basketball court.
Deborah Grubman of Corcoran had the listing—and she’s also the broker marketing Weinstein’s other high-priced New York City property, a five-bedroom duplex near the top of the iconic Beresford. That enormous home hit the market just a couple of months ago, with an eye-popping $29.5 million price tag—the same price it was asking all the way back in 2009.
