Shoe designer Tamara Mellon’s penthouse at the 1913 Carhart Mansion is back on the market and asking $27 million – a $7 million discount from its initial price tag.

Located at 3 East 95th Street, the duplex measures 7,140 square feet with terraces spanning 5,290 square feet. It first hit the market in 2014 asking $34 million and last year got price chopped to $29.5 million.

At the current price, Mellon is looking for $3,781 per foot for the pad.

The Corcoran Group’s Jeff Lorenz and Douglas Elliman’s Keith Copley and Pascual Ortiz have the listing.

Built to resemble a Parisian townhouse, the landmarked mansion was converted into four residences in 2005, and Mellon reportedly bought the condo from Edgar Bronfman Jr. in 2008 for $21 million.

“The apartment itself feels like Downtown living with its lofty proportions,” Lorenz told The Real Deal in an email.

Mellon, a British socialite and shoe maven, told the New York Times in 2014 that “the terraces are heaven.”

The 10-room penthouse has five bedrooms, four wood-burning fireplaces, a solarium and a 13-by-23-foot walk-in closet with “discreet frosted windows that turn transparent at the top.”
