Nedda Casei, a former mezzo-soprano with the Metropolitan Opera, sold her Sutton Place co-op for $2.9 million – almost half the original asking price of $5.5 million.
Casei first put the apartment at 16 Sutton Place on the market in 2013. She then slashed the ask to $5 million in 2014 and later to $3.2 million, with buyer Barbara Dau closing on the home for under $3 million. Sotheby’s International Realty Eva Mohr had the listing.
The four-bedroom, 17th-floor apartment – located on the top floor of 16 Sutton Place – features views of the East River, a library and stained glass windows, according to the New York Observer. The home also has two landscaped terraces complete with an irrigation system, garden lights and fountains.
