After sitting on the market for some time, the magnifique French-inspired limestone mansion at 58 East 66th Street has found a buyer in the business: according to city records, Brown Harris Stevens agent Craig Filipacci just picked up the home for $24.175 million. And he got a bargain, relatively speaking: the Upper East Side palace was last listed for $35 million.
The storied estate has spent quite a bit of time on the market in recent years. Developer Zach Vella’s wife picked up the abode in 2008 for $14.5 million, gutted it, didn’t renovate it, and sold it six years later for $17.15 million to the Connecticut-based entity Wb58e66a LLC—which put it back on the market a few months later with a startling new price tag.
Of course, the money’s not for nothing: now “fully restored to its turn of the century grandeur,” the abode features an endless roster of luxuries. Among its more notable offerings: a marble foyer (with vaulted ceiling); a sparkling new kitchen (by leading kitchen designer Christopher Peacock); six bedrooms (all with en suite baths), five fireplaces, two terraces, and a “sumptuous spa” equipped with space for “a large swimming pool, basketball court, wine cellar or exhibition space as one prefers.”
