The former president of Major League Baseball, Robert DuPuy, has unloaded his co-op at 115 East 67th Street for $5.77 million.
The duplex, which spans the building’s fifth and sixth floors, is located in the Milan House, built in 1930 and ornamented with carvings of owls, storks, monkeys and pelicans, according to the New York Observer. Listed with Brown Harris Stevens’ Elizabeth Sierzega, the listing originally asked $6.75 million, when it first hit the market in October.
In additional to the menagerie of sculpture on the building’s exterior, the four-bedroom pad boasts a wood-burning fireplace, staff room with an attached bath, formal dining room and a library with a nearby powder room, according to the listing.
Andrew Vogel, a partner at Zelnick Media/ZM Capital and trustee of Manhattan’s Dance Theater Workshop, purchased the pad along with wife Veronique Mazard, who does marketing for high-end jewelry. The Vogels’ neighbors will include do-it-yourself guru Bob Vila, who picked up a three-bedroom pad in the building for $2.46 million in 2012, and “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara’s beau Nick Loeb, who rented in the building in December.
