After six years on and off the market, the storied townhouse at 29 Beekman Place has finally sold to a New York real estate company for $11.5 million, the New York Times reported.
Charlie Attias of Compass and Greg Corbin of Rosewood Realty brokered the deal.
The seven-story home, located a few blocks from the United Nations on the East River, was originally listed for $50 million in 2014.
Jetsetting Princess Ashraf Pahlavi, the twin sister of Iran’s last shah, purchased the home in 1975, just four years before her family fled Iran during the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and counted it as a residence until her death in 2016.
According to Compass real estate records, Pahlavi listed the home for $49.9 million in February 2014. By June 2015, the asking price had dropped to $34 million.
