A pair of unnamed investors have purchased the Steinway Mansion for $2.6 million.

The mystery duo plan to preserve the landmarked house at 18-33 41st Street in Astoria but may develop the grounds, the New York Daily News reported. The deal was finalized on Friday, brokers Paul Halvatzis, Christina Halvatzis and Lauren Cornea of Amorelli Realty told the paper, and included the home and one acre of land.

The brokers and local officials declined to disclose the names of the new owners, who City Councilman Costas Constantinides described as “born and raised” in Astoria.

“They want to keep this part of the fabric of the neighborhood,” Constantinides told the Daily News. “They are not looking to open it as a nightclub or a catering hall.”

The 27-room home, constructed in 1858, hit the market asking $2.9 million last year. The owner later split the seven plots of land and reduced the ask to $1.9 million in April in a move criticized by preservationists groups. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
