Yoko Ono relists West Village pad amid co-op board battle

Money may not buy me love, but $6.5 million will be enough to land Yoko Ono’s penthouse apartment in the West Village.

Ono, in the midst of a court battle with the 49 Downing Street co-op board, has listed the pad with Paula Allen of Sotheby’s International Realty. Purchased for her son Sean’s use in 1995, the home has largely sat vacant since he took up residence elsewhere only a few years later. The board, according to Ono’s suit, threw “arbitrary conditions” in the way of a sale earlier this year.

Assuming the legal smoke peacefully clears at some point, the new owner will enjoy a 5,700-square-foot spread in a former horse stable that contains the structure’s original wooden beams, columns and exposed brick. The home has three bedrooms, a terrace, greenhouse and rooftop deck, and is a relative bargain compared to the property’s original $8.995 million ask before it was de-listed in July.
