Rupert’s Ex Sells

Anna Murdoch Mann, ex-wife of Rupert, listed her 25 Sutton Place co-op in September 2009 for $6.8 million with Sotheby’s Mary Kent. After a year of strategic price shavings, Ms. Mann (she remarried to widower William Mann in 1999), who resides in Palm Beach, Fla., succeeded in selling the three-bedroom with 10-foot ceilings for $6.25 million. Her ex, meanwhile, lives in the $44 million triplex penthouse at 834 Fifth.

Ms. Mann’s former high-floor Candela co-op, with “fabulous river views,” a marble bath and a rambling wood-paneled library, sold to Taconic Capital Partners principal Frank Brosens and his wife, Deenie. Mr. Brosens, a significant Democratic donor, was in 2009 one of the leading contenders to run the TARP program before withdrawing his name from the running. (Ms. Kent, the broker, could not be reached for comment.)
