A Midtown townhouse which once belonged to legendary R&B record producer Babyface has hit the market asking $5.25 million. The 241 East 52nd Street property was on the rental market in 2012 asking $23,740 a month, as The Real Deal reported.
The townhouse, located between Second and Third avenues, totals 3,650 square feet and features a garden and “livable” basement, according to the listing by Tristan Harper of Douglas Elliman, who previously had the rental listing. It also has a “through-wall” music system, security system and a wine cellar.
Babyface, whose real name is Kenneth Edmonds, owned the property between 1998 and 2004, and then sold it for $2.95 million. The current sales listing was first reported by the New York Post. [NYP] – Hiten Samtani
