A five-story Lenox Hill townhouse built in 1873 that once housed Eleanor Roosevelt sold for $9.5 million, and was filed with city property records today. The four-bedroom, six-bathroom home at 211 East 62nd Street hit the market in June 2010 and was listed by Roger Erickson, a senior managing director at Sotheby’s International Realty, but it was ultimately sold by Sabrina Saltiel, an executive vice president at Prudential Douglas Elliman, who picked up the listing in February.

Saltiel declined to comment on the sale, which closed Aug. 10.

Roosevelt occupied the elevator home between 1953 and 1958, according to the listing, and the building was landmarked in 1967 as part of the Treadwell Farm Historic District. The house has central air, heating and a 700-square-foot garden. Property records show the seller was the estate of Roger Rechler, a Long Island developer and managing partner at Rechler Equity Partners, and that it was bought by an LLC called Root Tree 211. — Adam Fusfeld
