Not even a free Phantom Rolls Royce could move the Upper East Side townhouse of billionaire fertilizer tycoon Alexander Rovt. Now, Rovt has slashed his ask from $25 million to $21.5 million.
Now, Rovt is swapping listing broker Daniel Messing of Piquet Realty for Jason Haber of Warburg Realty and cutting the asking price, according to the New York Daily News.
Rovt, a Ukranian native, has owned the home since 2005, when he bought it from restaurateur Rocky Aoki for $4.6 million. He and his wife then demolished and rebuilt the townhouse from scratch at a cost of some $18 million. [NYDN] – Christopher Cameron [NYDN] – Christopher Cameron
