Bob Weinstein Wanted $19M for His Five-Story Townhouse
Bob Weinstein's Upper West Side apartment went into contract last week for more than $1 million less than the original listing price of $19 million.
The Miramax Files co-founder was looking to unload the five-story townhouse back in February before his brother, Harvey Weinstein, dominated the headlines with a string of abhorrent alleged sexual harassment charges.
Located at 39 West 70th Street, the five-bedroom apartment was purchased by Weinstein and his now ex-wife Annie Clayton. The listing, represented by Deborah Grubman and David Adler at the Corcoran Group, describes the location as "one of the most beautiful Central Park blocks."
The property occupies seven floors and is steeped in period details, which Weinstein and his wife kept in tact during a "meticulous" gut renovation.
Originally built in 1910, the home has 5 gas fireplaces and an original 5-story oak staircase. Wood panelling and wide-plank floors bring a historic sensibility to the well-appointed family property.
In the kitchen, custom cabinetry and marble countertops flank a Viking range. The living and dining rooms are located on the Parlor floor as well.
On the third floor, there's a full master suite with stall shower and claw footed soaking bathtub. The forth and fifth floors contain the rest of the home's bedrooms, one of which was converted to a basketball court.
The home has not been occupied since the renovation.
