UPDATED April 28, 2:30 p.m.: Ron Perelman is still looking to shed his Lenox Hill townhouse.

The billionaire investor has once again listed his home at 36 East 63rd Street for $60 million, following failed attempts to secure a sale in previous years. 

Perelman sought to offload the 16,000-square-foot home — which once served as his primary residence —  in 2020 for $65 million with the option to add his smaller, adjacent townhouse for a combined $75 million. He put the larger of the two homes back on the market the following year with a $60 million asking price. 

The five-story, 40-foot-wide home was designed in 1930 as part of a private club for aviators called the Hangar Club. It has 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and includes a garden, glass pavilion, original elliptical staircase, library with wood-burning fireplace and two landscaped rooftop terraces. 

Brown Harris Stevens’ John Burger and Sami Hassoumi have the listing.

Once the richest man in America in the 1980s, Perelman, who leads the firm MacAndrews & Forbes, took a big financial hit during the pandemic, when the share price of his hallmark company Revlon dropped from $25 to $5. He discharged several of his personal assets to settle debts, including jet airplanes, yachts and parts of his art collection

At the time, the 80-year-old businessman told The Wall Street Journal that the pandemic pushed him to “think carefully about myself and my business, and to reset my priorities.”

Last January, Perelman sold his Lily Pond Lane estate in East Hampton for $84 million, down from its $115 million asking price when he listed the home in September 2021. The 11,400-square-foot home was the priciest deal closed in the Hamptons last year.

Perelman was also rumored to be shopping for a buyer for his 57-acre Hamptons estate, dubbed “The Creeks,” for $180 million, though he denied it at the time. 

This article has been updated to include Sami Hassoumi as a co-broker on the listing.
