Here’s the down-low on some of the residential deals that caught our eye in the Big Apple last week.

Source: A TRD analysis of property records filed with the New York City Department of Finance from Nov. 4 to 8.

  1. Liv Tyler sold her four-story West Village townhouse at 255 West 11th Street for $17.45 million in an off-market deal, the New York Post reported. The deal hit public records Nov. 4. The actress sold the home through an entity called “The Pink Trust.” The buyer, 255W11ST LLC, lists Resy founder Ben Leventhal as its managing member. Tyler had owned the property since 2001, when she acquired it for $2.53 million, according to the Post.
  2. Richard and Lauren duPont unloaded their long-time co-op at 129 East 69th Street in Lenox Hill for about $4.3 million. Richard duPont Jr. is an artist and descendent of the founder of the Dupont conglomerate; Lauren duPont’s father, Arthur Martinez, was once chairman of Sears, according to a New York Times wedding announcement. The buyer was Michael G. Douglas. The four-bedroom hit the market in April, asking $4.65 million, according to StreetEasy. Sotheby’s International Realty’s Megan Duryea Scott had the listing.
  3. Thomas and Ann Unterberg parted with a townhouse once owned by Billy Joel at 49 East 67th Street for $11.75 million. The buyer was 49 East 67th Street LLC, which is registered to attorney Nader Ahari (it was previously registered to investment manager Matthew Holt). The Unterbergs had put the home, which dates to the late 19th century, on the market in 2015, asking $24 million, according to StreetEasy. They had bought it in 2000 and renovated it. After several price chops and brokers, Corcoran’s Cathy Franklin, Alexis Bodenheimer and Marion Smith appear to have had the most recent listing. The six-level, 20-foot-wide home measures 8,926 square feet. It also has access to the neighboring co-op’s swimming pool. Joel reportedly bought the home in the 1980s for $4 million for his first wife, Elizabeth Weber, according to the Post. Thomas Unterberg founded an investment bank that was later acquired by U.K.-based Collins Stewart.
