Dennis Stattman, a portfolio manager and the head of private equity giant Blackrock’s global allocation team, has snapped up a maisonette apartment from real estate investor Stephen Meringoff and his wife Joanna for $8 million, according to public records filed with the city today.

Meringoff is a partner at Himmel + Meringoff Properties alongside Leslie Wohlman Himmel. The company owns office towers like 411 Lafayette Street and 401 Park Avenue South.

The residence, at One Beekman Place on the East Side, had been asking $8.75 million. It was listed with Roger Erickson of Sotheby’s International Realty. Neither Stattman nor Meringoff was immediately available for comment. Erickson declined to comment. It was not known if Stattman had been represented by a broker.

The 5,200-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bathroom property had been on the market since 2011, according to data from listings website StreetEasy. It was not clear when, or for how much, Meringoff purchased the unit. The deal was completed Dec. 10.

The Duplex Apartment Has Its Own Private Street entrance as well as one from the building’s lobby. It features a living room with a private terrace overlooking the East River, a dining room, a paneled library and a dramatic oval staircase.

The 42-unit co-op building was built by John D. Rockefeller in 1929 and has a swimming pool, basketball and squash courts, a fitness center, and a parking garage.

Meringoff appears to already have another apartment lined up. Last year, the commercial real estate investor bought a penthouse spread renovated by architect Charles Gwathmey at the Verona building at 32 East 64th Street for $21 million.

Stattman has been a portfolio manager at Blackrock for more than 20 years.
