The Manhattan Mansion Roman Abramovich Almost Bought Is Now Available To Rent For $80,000 A Month
The rent was price chopped from the original $150,000-a-month asking price from back in October, presumably from lack of interest.Now the triplex is back, this time for almost half the rent. Curbed reports that the owner, heiress Angelika Ivanc, is spending time out of town with her children and is hoping to find a suitable tenant.Advertisement
More than a year ago, Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich was in contract to purchase three of the five apartments in the building at 828 Fifth Avenue from the family of late British real estate developer Howard Ronson, which included the penthouse, a triplex, and a duplex apartment.
The deal fell through after the seller - Ronson's widow, Ivanc - reportedly held out because she thought she could get more money from the Russian mogul.Abramovich had reportedly bought another apartment in the building, and was trying to purchase the final unit so he could restore the mansion to its former glory. Now it looks like that dream may never happen.
The Manhattan townhouse sits directly across from Central Park Zoo.
It's currently divided up into five units.Advertisement
Abramovich was hoping to buy them all and create a single-family mansion.
Ronson's holdings included a penthouse, a triplex, and a duplex maisonette with more than 15,000 square feet of living space.Advertisement
There's also a roof terrace overlooking Central Park.
The three units have eight bedrooms in total.Advertisement
