An Upper East Side townhouse owned by President Trump’s first nominee for Secretary of the U.S. Army is in contract to sell for $80 million — a price tag that would make it the most expensive townhouse in city history.

Vincent Viola, CEO of Virtu Financial and owner of the Florida Panthers, bought the property on 12 East 69th Street with his wife Teresa Viola in 2005 for $20 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The 20,000-square-foot townhouse, which was originally listed for $114 million in 2013, has its own movie theater outfitted in red velvet, panic room, swimming pool and sauna, and seven bedrooms. Brown Harris Stevens agent Paula Del Nunzio is representing the Violas in the off-market transaction.

Though the identity of the new owner has not been revealed, sources told the Journal the buyer also bought a $50.5 million penthouse at 15 Central Park West, a property that was previously owned by former Barclay’s Chief Executive Bob Diamond. [WSJ] — E.K. Hudson
