20 MELLON SALE Stiletto queen Tamara Mellon will be clicking her fancy heels in a new Upper East Side residence.
The man eating silver jimmy choo pumps Jimmy Choo co founder and ex wife of banking heir Matthew Mellon has just paid $20 million for Edgar Bronfman Jr. sprawling condo in the Carhart mansion on East 95th Street. Mellon whose boy toys have reportedly included Kid Rock, Gone Wild mogul Joe Francis, Pharrell Williams and currently Christian Slater closed earlier this week on the 10 room pad in the former Lycee Francais school limestone townhouse. A check of the Corcoran Group Web site shows that broker Carrie Chiang has stamped a banner over the listing that had a last asking price of $21.75 million. The 7,140 square foot duplex penthouse is unfinished, with plans for five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two powder rooms, six terraces, a 40 foot living room with 12 foot ceilings, a 22 foot formal dining room, maid quarters and a solarium. Mellon, who primarily lives in London with her 5 year old daughter, Araminta, has been embroiled in a jimmy choo green pumps lawsuit with her mother, a former Chanel model, over the 2004 sale of the $350 million Choo empire. Bronfman surprised real estate watchers when he bought the unit last November for $18.75 million after selling his East 64th Street townhouse for $50 million and buying a $19.5 million co op at 1040 Fifth Ave., which he later sold. Neither Mellon nor her broker, Jeff Lorenz, also of the Corcoran Group, could be reached for comment at press time. Kiefer Kiefer Sutherland has Jack Bauer like negotiation skills. The star just picked up a circa 1830s Greek Revival townhouse in the West Village for $8.2 million millions less than its original asking price. According to Prudential Douglas Elliman Web site, the five story structure with approximately 4,750 square feet of open space includes plans for a five bedroom single family home with open living and entertaining spaces and [an] elevator. Kudos to real estate columnist Bob Goldsborough, who first identified Sutherland cleverly concealed trust. The limited liability company that was selling the Greenwich Street digs and which purchased it in 2006 for $5.3 million put it on the market for $12.99 million last January. Then it was lowered to $10.4 million in February. And then it was lowered again to its last asking price of $9.4 million. Broker Leslie Mason of Prudential Douglas Elliman would only say that it was sold unrenovated. As The Post reported yesterday, a number of choice residences at the Plaza have been put back on the market. And now, three more have shown up for sale. One is a two bedroom condo on the sixth floor facing the park. And the seller happens to be serial real estate investor Michael Hirtenstein, who is certainly no stranger to our pages. Encompassing just under 2,000 square feet, Hirtenstein place, with an $11.49 million asking price, features park views from both bedrooms and the living room/dining area. According to the jimmy choo red sparkle pumps listing, there are 2 bathrooms with the original mosaic double pattern, 11 foot jimmy choo dresses ceilings, herringbone floors, a windowed gourmet kitchen with white mosaic marble backing and stone countertops. The master bedroom features an ornamental fireplace and a large walk in closet. Lauren Muss of the Corcoran Group is the listing broker.
The other newcomers are a 15th floor two bedroom, two bath place for $12.5 million, listed by Burt Savitsky at Brown Harris Stevens, and a cozy one bedroom on the 16th floor for $3.35 million.
