The founder of hedge fund Kingdon Capital has purchased the 10-bedroom penthouse at the storied co-op building at 1107 Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side.

Mark Kingdon paid $30.9 million for the four-bedroom pad, which was previously home to European aristocrat Monique Uzielli for more than half a century until her death in 2011, the New York Daily News reported. The co-op includes a wraparound terrace, a library and a wood-burning fireplace, according to the newspaper. It was once part of a triplex that belonged to cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post.

A deal to sell the penthouse for $27.5 million fell through last year, when would-be owner and Peruvian billionaire Carlos Rodriguez Pastor balked at the board’s plan to allow other residents to access the roof via the penthouse’s terrace, the Daily News reported.
