A townhouse in the Greenwich Village has just sold for a whopping $22.3 million, and rumors are swirling that the mysterious buyer is either billionaire Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg or his sister, Randi Zuckerberg.

According to property records first spotted by the New York Observer, the sale was closed under the title “12th Street Townhouse LLC,” and the deed was signed by Tom van Loben Sels, a partner at San Francisco-based Apercen Partners LLC.

Van Loben Sels has worked with the Zuckerbergs on several occasions.

He registered a separate LLC when Mark purchased his Palo Alto home in 2011, and he worked on the sale of Randi’s Los Altos home earlier this year.

He also helped Mark refinance his mortgage in 2012.

It seems more likely that Randi is the buyer behind the LLC, given that her Silicon Valley home just sold for $6.55 million, and she had been rumored to be mulling a move to New York.

Mark, who recently announced he and his wife Priscilla are expecting their first child, could certainly afford that steep price tag, too. It’s also entirely possible that Van Loben Sels is working with another high-profile client in this instance.

There aren’t too many details available about the house itself, as it was never publicly listed. It has 3,200 square feet of space situated over three levels. It was built in 1899 and previously belonged to Michael Stewart of UBS. Stewart purchased the townhouse for $3.4 million in 2004.

Van Loben Sels did not immediately return a request for comment.
