Helen LaKelly Hunt, a women’s rights activist, has purchased a home at 352 Riverside Drive for $15.75 million, a record for an Upper West Side townhouse. The 9,000-square foot townhouse, designed in 1899 by architect Robert D. Kohn, first listed for $15 million for several months in early 2006, according to Streeteasy.com. Its restored original details include a wide baronial staircase and eight fireplaces. The seller was James B. Rogers Jr., the fund manager and author who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros, and his wife, Paige Anderson Parker.

Rogers wrote about a two-year motorcycle trip he took his book, ”Investment Biker: Around the World With Jim Rogers.” Hunt founded The Sister Fund, a small, private foundation dedicated to the wellness of women and girls. She co-founded the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy, a couples counseling center, with husband Harville Hendrix, author of the best-seller, “Getting The Love You Want.” The couple lives with their six children in New Jersey. Hunt’s most recent book is Faith and Feminism: A Holy Alliance. TRD
