Bunker-like West Village residence sells for $43M

Deal a close second to priciest ever Manhattan mansion sale

A West Village property once owned by Texas oil heiress Hyatt Bass has sold for $42.5 million, placing the private mansion among the priciest ever sold in Manhattan.

Bass and her husband, screenwriter Josh Klausner, purchased the property at 802 Greenwich Street for $7.5 million in 2001. The building was previously home to a film studio, and the pair brought on architect Annabelle Selldorf to redevelop the building into a luxury townhouse, the New York Daily News reported. And yet, the duo reportedly never actually lived inside the 12,000-square-foot space.

The redesign of the property included state-of-the-art security features — not overly surprising given Anne Bass, Hyatt’s mother, was terrorized in a home invasion of her Connecticut mansion in 2007.

The sale, which does not appear to have been orchestrated by a broker, is $10.5 million shy of the current $53 million Manhattan record, secured by the sale of The 4 East 75th Street Harkness mansion in 2006. The priciest condominium ever sold Downtown, meanwhile, is Walker Tower’s Penthouse One at 212 West 18th Street, which closed for just under $51 million earlier this year. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
