Great cell phone service is one thing the residents of West 11th Street won’t have to worry about anymore.
Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure is apparently the buyer of the 10,000-square-foot house at 269 West 11th Street in the West Village, which was sold earlier this year by a Goldman Sachs partner, the New York Post reported. Claure paid $27.4 million for the house, less than two years after the banker picked up the property for $20.89 million, property records show.
The house, which has eight bedrooms, a roof deck and a 1,200-square-foot garden, also comes with already-approved renovation plans designed by Annabelle Selldorf. “The size of the house per the approved plans can be approximately 20 percent larger,” according to the listing.
Claure’s home sits next door to Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, who picked up 273 and 275 West 11th Street for $34.5 million. Morris Adjmi Architects has been tapped to combine the townhouses. [NYP] — E.B. Solomont
