The Republic of Chad bought a six-story residential townhouse at 129 East 36th Street in Murray Hill for $7.28 million, nearby its offices and about 12 blocks from the United Nations.

The Chad government, representing its United Nations mission, bought the building from restaurateur Nicola Marzovilla and his wife Astrid on March 6 after going into contract in January, according to property records published today. The permanent Mission of the Republic of Chad to the United Nations is at 211 East 43rd Street.

The building was delivered vacant, and the buyer will use it as a residence, said Mary Beth Flynn, managing director and senior vice president at Brown Harris Stevens, who along with senior vice president Russell Miller were brokers on the sale. The buyer was not immediately available for comment.

The central African nation of Chad is embroiled in a dispute with its eastern neighbor Sudan centered on the war-torn Sudanese region of Darfur. Each side accuses the other of aiding rebels fighting the central governments.

Marzovilla owns Italian restaurants I Trulli in Kips Bay and Centovini in Soho.
