It didn’t quite fetch the $15 million premium on its asking price some expected, but the townhouse at 815 Fifth Avenue did sell for $32 million, the Wall Street Journal reported, $7 million more than its $25 million asking price.

The six-story 10,000-square-foot building is reportedly the oldest structure in Manhattan on Fifth Avenue between 59th and 110th streets. Formerly a mansion, the property is now made up of 12 apartments and two offices, but it could be restored to its original state. Earlier reports indicated that restoration would justify the higher price.

Located between 62nd and 63rd streets, the townhouse has 25 feet of frontage on Central Park and has been owned by the same family, listed in public records as Carol Dowling and Robert Haskell, since the 1950s, when they paid $120,000 for it.

The property was listed by Darren Sukenik of Prudential Douglas Elliman and Sotheby’s International Realty brokers Roberta Golubock and Margaret Juvelier brought the buyer. The building was delisted from Streeteasy.com six days ago after 162 days on the market. [WSJ] — Adam Fusfeld
