The storied building at 740 Park Avenue has been home to some of the country’s most powerful families like the Vanderbilts, the Rockefellers and the Kochs.

It has also been in Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s family since the 1960s. Now, Mnuchin is looking to sell his family’s 6,500-square-foot residence, asking $32.5 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The luxury building on East 71st Street has a long and distinguished history in New York, and recently has also been home to Ronald Lauder, Stephen Schwarzman and Vera Wang.

Mnuchin reportedly bought the five-bedroom pad from his aunt, Carol Lederman, for $10.5 million in 2000. But the unit, spread over 12 rooms and two floors, did not serve as Mnuchin’s primary home. He was based in California as a Hollywood financier. Carol Lederman, a broker for Warburg, is also the listing agent.

In April, the former Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain listed his penthouse there for $39.5 million. In 2004, David Koch paid $18 million for an 18-room duplex in the premises. [WSJ] — David Jeans
