The exclusive Spence School closed on a $27.5 million mansion adjacent to its building at 22 East 91st Street. Spence, a private college preparatory school for girls from kindergarten through 12th grade, bought the Wanamaker Munn House at 17 East 90th Street near Fifth Avenue from the estate of socialite Aimee de Heeren, who died in 2006.
The deal closed on August 15, city records published today show. An official with the school said it had no comment on how the building would be used.

The sale of the single-family home, built in 1890, closed on August 22, according to city property records posted today.
