A High Line-adjacent townhome belonging to a financial services executive has sold for $17.6 million to William Randolph Hearst’s grandson, a television producer, the Wall Street Journal reported. The five-story pad, at 81 Horatio Street, belonged to John de Neufville, managing director of G2 Investment Group, an investment management advisory. The 7,174-square-foot home — which dates to the 1870s — has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a roof deck with hot tub, a gym, a wine-tasting room and six wood-burning fireplaces.

De Neufville bought the home for $2 million in 2002, and did extensive renovations, working closely with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, as The Real Deal has reported. The asking price was $20 million.

Jeremy and Robin Stein of Sotheby’s International represented the seller, who wanted to move uptown, according to the Journal. [WSJ, 3rd item]-Guelda Voien
