Blackstone Group executive Neil Simpkins has been revealed as the buyer of a $37.2 million townhouse in Greenwich Village, which set a record for the most expensive such sale in downtown Manhattan.

Simpkins is a senior managing director in Blackstone’s private equity group, and a mortgage document identified him as the buyer of the approximately 9,800-square-foot property, which has six bedrooms, five stories and an attached carriage house, according to the Wall Street Journal. Other amenities include a gym, a home theater and a wine cellar.

Property taxes on the home are about $103,000 per year.

British interior designer Rebekah Caudwell and her husband, real estate developer Nicolas Dupart, sold the property and had spent about three years renovating it. Meris Blumstein of the Corcoran Group represented Simpkins. [WSJ] – Eddie Small
