Disney’s Bob Iger and 1125 Fifth Avenue

There’s no screening room to speak of, but Disney’s Bob Iger sold his Fifth Avenue pad for nearly $19 million anyway.

The CEO’s seventh-floor co-op at 1125 Fifth Avenue fetched $18.8 million, according to property records filed with the city Monday. The buyers are Thomas Lister, a co-managing partner at London-based Permira Advisers, and his wife, Amanda.

Iger put the 11-room apartment on the market in July, asking $19 million, according to StreetEasy. Stribling & Associates’ Alexa Lambert, Marc Achilles and Julie Soffen had the listing. The brokers declined to comment.

The full-floor spread has four bedrooms, a wood-burning fireplace and wood-paneled library with views of Central Park.

Built in 1925, the tony property has just 15 apartments. Last year, “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ stepmother, Phyllis Louis-Dreyfus, sold her ninth-floor pad for $16 million. A 14th-floor apartment is currently on the market, asking $20 million.

Iger, 66, has been CEO of the Walt Disney Company since 2005. Last month, Disney extended his contract through 2021 on the heels of its $52.4 billion deal to buy a majority of 21 Century Fox’s media assets.

Iger’s total pay dropped 17 percent last year to $36.3 million, according to Disney’s latest proxy filing.
