Pavarotti widow sells Hampshire House pad for under $1M
The widow of the supreme tenor Luciano Pavarotti has sold his Hampshire House co-op for $999, 990, a sizeable discount from its $1.3 million asking price, the New York Post reported.
The one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, located at 150 Central Park South, is one of three units Pavarotti owned on the same floor of the building, according to the Post. His widow, Nicoletta Mantovani, sold the home to society couple Alexander and Marina Balanevsky.
City records seen by the Post show that the Balanevskys also bought one of the other units from Mantovani for $999,999 last year, also at a discount from its $1.15 million ask.
Hampshire House has been home to other opera legends, such as Pavarotti’s Three Tenors co-performers Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. [NYP, 2nd item] — Hiten Samtani
