A marijuana investor just snagged the townhouse at Extell Development’s Carlton House for less than half its original asking price.

The home at 19 East 61st Street sold for $27.5 million, according to records filed with New York City’s Department of Finance. It was last asking $32.9 million, but had initially been listed at $65 million in 2014.

The buyer is a trust tied to Jonathan Sandelman and Alicia Bona Sandelman. Jonathan is CEO of Toronto-based Cannabis Strategies Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company pursuing deals in the cannabis industry. In 2017, the company said it raised $135 million and is targeting acquisitions in areas including marijuana production and distribution. Jonathan didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.

Extell and the listing brokers — Stribling’s Alexa Lambert, Marc Achilles and Julie Soffen — also didn’t immediately respond to comment.

The 35-foot-wide home spans about 9,700 square feet and has about 2,700 square feet of outdoor space. The owners have use of amenities next door at the Carlton House, including the doorman and concierge, a 65-foot pool, a fitness center and a game room.

In 2016, the home saw a price cut to $37.5 million, from the $65 million it was first listed for in 2014. Brown Harris Stevens’ Paula Del Nunzio was previously marketing the property.

The developer paid $175 million for the site of the Helmsley Carlton House hotel in 2010, converting it into a 68-unit cond-op with partner Angelo, Gordon and Co. Joseph Sitt’s Thor Equities picked up the building’s block-long retail condo for $277 million in 2013.
