The estate of Lee Radziwill sold the former princess’s longtime Upper East Side home for $4.25 million, property records show.

Radziwill, the sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and a renowned fashion icon and socialite, owned the 15th-floor pre-war co-op at 160 East 72nd Street for over three decades.

The full-floor home hit the market in April, asking $5.7 million. The price was reduced to $4.9 million a month later, and in July the Observer reported that a buyer was in contract for the pad.

The three-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home looks outward to 72nd Street and comes with a private elevator vestibule and wood-burning fireplace. The co-op also has a staff room and 31-foot living room.

Radziwill’s second of three husbands was Poland’s Prince Stanislas Radzwill, and together they had two children. (Their son Anthony died in 1999.) Born as Caroline Lee Bouvier, she tried her hand at a litany of careers — from acting to interior design, according to her New York Times obituary. She died in February at the age of 85.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Leslie Coleman and Mary Rutherford had the listing. They did not immediately return requests for comment.

The new owners are Elizabeth and Grant Quasha, chief investment officer of GFG Alliance, a U.K.-based conglomerate focused on the mining, energy and metals industries. The Quashas and Radziwill’s daughter, Anna Christina Radziwill, couldn’t immediately be reached.
