The former home of murdered broker-to-the-stars Linda Stein just hit the market for $17.5 million.

Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Howard Margolis and Jeff Adler have the listing for the three-bedroom co-op at the Kenilworth where Stein lived for years with her ex-husband, Seymour Stein, and their two daughters, Samantha and Mandy. The Kenilworth, located at 151 Central Park West between 75th and 76th streets, is known for its celebrity residents, including Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.

After their marriage in 1971, Linda — the onetime manager of punk rock band the Ramones — and music producer Seymour moved into the Kenilworth, where they were known for throwing parties attended by their glittering circle of music business friends. Linda, who later parlayed her celebrity connections into a career as a high-profile real estate broker, stayed in the Kenilworth with their daughters after she and Seymour divorced. But once their daughters were old enough to leave home, the super-broker bought the one-bedroom penthouse at 965 Fifth Avenue where she was famously found bludgeoned to death in 2007.

Linda’s assistant, Natavia Lowery, was convicted of second-degree murder in connection with the crime and sentenced to 25 years in prison. The slain broker’s family sold her Fifth Avenue penthouse for $1.045 million in 2008.

Margolis declined to identify the current owner of the Kenilworth apartment, but said it has been extensively renovated since Stein lived there.

“It’s a very, very high-end, classical renovation,” he said. The apartment’s position in the middle of the building yields panoramic of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park, he said. The eighth-floor home is available furnished or empty, he added.
