Goldman Sachs’ top spokesman bought a newly renovated Upper West Side townhouse for $7.85 million.

The five-story brownstone at 131 West 95th Street near Columbus Avenue has five bedrooms and new built-in iPod connectors in the walls, a property listing said.

Lucas van Praag, the global head of corporate communication for the investment firm as well as a partner, closed on the purchase August 20, according to public records published today.

Van Praag declined to comment.

The seller of the 1905 building, who was the developer who did the renovation work, was identified as 131 West 95th Street Associates.

The developer bought the building for $2.5 million in February, 2006, and converted it from a seven-unit apartment building into a single-family home.
