A neo-Classical townhouse at 176 East 64th Street, between Third Avenue and Lexington, sold last week for $15.77 million – the priciest deal of the week.
Built in 1899, the historic 14-room home received its first renovation in 1910 from John Cross, the architect of the Tiffany & Company flagship store on Fifth Avenue, according to the New York Times.
The five-story, 6,000-square-foot residence features an elevator, a grand mahogany staircase, a limestone-and-marble reception gallery, a paneled study, and a double-height dining atrium.
The sellers, Robert J. and Jeanne DiNicola, paid $14.85 million for the home in 2006. Dennis Di Lorenzo of Stribling & Associates represented the sellers, making him the top residential agent of the week. The buyer purchased the home using a limited liability company, and their broker declined to be identified. [NYT] – Christopher Cameron
