Brown Harris Stevens broker Craig Filipacchi just threw down $24 million for an Upper East Side townhouse.

Filipacchi TRData LogoTINY, who works out of BHS’s Tribeca office with his partner Jacques Foussard, paid $24.18 million for the five-story, 12-room limestone home at 58 East 66th Street, property records filed with the city Friday show.

The seller, an LLC controlled by real estate investor Ted Muftic, paid $17.15 million for the property back in 2014, then quickly turned around and listed it on the market with BHS’ Paula Del Nunzio for $35 million.

At some point, though, the owner made a switch to the Corcoran Group’s Leighton Candler, who brokered the sale to Filipacchi.

Neither Filipacchi nor Candler could be immediately reached for comment.

It’s not clear whether the home is for Filipacchi’s personal use, or an investment property.

Filipacchi, a scion of the Hachette Filipacchi publishing family, purchased the townhouse with his wife, according to records. They also a condo in Tribeca, property records show.

But according to his BHS website, Filipacchi also buys investment properties, and records show he’s made a small handful of purchases in recent years.

The Upper East Side mansion, known as the Arthur Sachs House, features a grand staircase that winds its way up to the building’s upper floors, which are topped with a large skylight.
