One of the Upper East Side’s priciest townhouses, located at10 East 67th Street, is now under contract.
Investment banker Gerhard Andlinger, and his wife, Jeanne purchased the building for around $17 million in 2003. Since May 2005, the five-story, 13,000-square-foot townhouse was listed at $32 million. However, it is now selling for closer to $28.5 million, according to a source.
Architect C.P.H. Gilbert designed the mansion in 1881 for financier Jules S. Bache–a name that might familiar to anyone who’s lingered around the galleries at the Metropolitan Museum, of which Bache was a devoted patron.
Over the years, it has housed many distinguised New Yorkers, but was also the sight of a tragedy. In 1997, former owner, art collector socialite Kitty Meyer, perished in a fire while trying to save a friend. However, it was completely renovated afterwards.
Broker C. Graham Uffelman, of Brown Harris Stevens, confirmed that the townhouse is under contract, but declined to comment on the price.
