Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones has sold his historic, 154-year-old town home on Manhattan's East Side for $9,001,000--or more than $1,800,000 above his asking price. In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale by Jones, 62, of the town house at 2 Rutherford Place in New York City, which went to contract May 2 but did not close until October 10. The sale was recorded last week, on Oct. 16, and the buyer is something called Selene Property, LLC. Back on March 9, we first wrote about Jones' $7.2 million listing of the six-bedroom limestone town house, which is on Stuyvesant Square on land that had been the Stuyvesant family farm, according to listing information. Features in the town house include four and a half baths, inlaid wood floors, original mantel marble and moldings, a sun-flooded drawing room, a private roof deck, a private outdoor shower, a formal dining room, six fireplaces, and a three-room separate bedroom suite with a private entrance, according to listing information. The town house apparently was built for a private family and was used at various times to house Civil War soldiers, as a monastery, as a doctor's office with a residence and as a dinner theater. Check out Jones' listing sheet -- complete with a photo. As we noted back on March 9, Jones purchased the town home for $6,201,872 back in 1998, according to public records. We're sure there's a terrific backstory to how Jones was able to sell the town house for fully $1,801,000 more than his asking price, but we don't yet know what it is. Readers? And, there's no immediate information on where Jones has relocated. We'll of course keep you posted.
