A five-story brownstone on East 64th Street, a block from Central Park, sold for $9.7 million. Mr. Steinberg of Cheddar, who is also a former president of BuzzFeed, and his wife, Jill Steinberg, were the buyers. The seller used a limited liability company in the transaction.
The fully renovated house, built in the late 1800s, has around 7,500 square feet of space. It features five bedrooms, five and a half baths, a family room and eight fireplaces. Outdoor space includes a large roof deck, a patio off the kitchen and a terrace on the third floor, where the master suite is situated.
Also closing in November:
Several more apartments sold at 15 Hudson Yards, the first residential building to open in the megaproject. The largest of these sales, at $8.5 million, was a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath unit.
The Fifth Avenue apartment of Eugene M. Lang, an investor and philanthropist who famously promised to pay the college tuition of sixth-graders in Harlem who completed high school. He died two years ago, and his fourth-floor co-op unit at 912 Fifth was sold by his estate for $3.3 million to Ronald Peltier, the founder and former chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway’s HomeServices of America.
And then there’s what you might call a “model” apartment in TriBeCa. This 4,215-square-foot loft, at 44 Laight Street, near Hudson Street, comes with its very own custom steel catwalk, along with three bedrooms, two full and one half-bath, and a glass-enclosed media room. (The catwalk provided a whimsical connection from a billiards room to the media room, both on raised platforms.) The apartment was sold for nearly $4.7 million by Cory Margolis, an owner of Mantiques Modern in Chelsea, and Jacqueline Margolis. The buyers were Samuel Hayden Powell and Elyssa Beth Kaplan.
