A townhouse that once served as the creative headquarters of Muppets creator Jim Henson hit the market today at $27.25 million.

The house, located at 117 East 69th Street, is a co-exclusive between the Corcoran Group’s Carrie Chiang and Brown Harris Stevens’ Alina Pedroso and Paula Del Nunzio. Previous reports had pegged the price at $28 million.

Henson had purchased the house in 1977 for $600,000 from the New York State Pharmaceutical Association. It became known as the Muppet Workshop, where designers from Henson Associates created stories for the likes of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Big Bird. Now, the mansion is gutted and belongs to Warner Music Group head Edgar Bronfman, who paid $28.5 million for it in 2008 with plans to renovate. Having since moved to London, Bronfman never carried out those plans.
