After being sold in 2010, the seven-room duplex previously owned by Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff is once again re-entering the marketplace, according to the New York Times.
The asking price for the penthouse apartment at 133 East 64th Street is $17.25 million.
The listing broker is Dolly Lenz, the former Douglas Elliman dynamo who left to form her own brokerage, I. Dolly Lenz Real Estate.
Madoff bought the apartment in 1984 and had lived there until 2009. The property was later bought in 2010 by 4Kids Entertainment CEO Al Kahn and his wife, Patsy, for $8 million. Patsy Kahn is selling the three-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bath duplex solo, as her now ex-husband has already moved out.
The apartment, at Lexington Avenue, features 11-foot ceilings, hand-carved dentil moldings, a medley of herringbone hardwood floors, and Palladian windows throughout its principal rooms on the 12th floor, which are surrounded by a wraparound terrace with views of Central Park and the Chrysler Building.
The guest bedroom has two closets and an adjacent tile bath. A third bedroom has a marble fireplace and paneled walls with built-in bookcases. [NYT] – James Comtois
