1 Sutton Place

The historic 1920s townhouse, built for a Vanderbilt and owned by a Heinz heiress, now has a buyer.

The six bedroom Georgian-style mansion at 1 Sutton Place is now in contract. The last listing price was $18.5 million, a 12 percent discount from its original listing price of $21 million in September.

Spanning 7,000 square feet over five stories, the mansion has views over the East River, a 32-foot high drawing room, and access to a garden maintained by the the Sutton Square Garden Association.

The building was listed for sale by the estate of Drue Heinz, wife of the late Henry John Heinz II, who was heir to the Heinz family fortune. Drue Heinz died aged 103 in April. The property is owned by a trust established in 1986.

The townhouse, tucked under the Queensboro bridge at the corner of East 57th Street and Sutton Place, was originally designed for Anne Vanderbilt, the wife of railroad heir William Vanderbilt. At one time it was also owned by Charles Merrill, the co-founder of Merrill Lynch, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Mary Kent of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing.
