Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters has paid $14,995,000 to purchase a town house on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Today, the New York Post’s fine celebrity real estate columnist Braden Keil followed up on the story of Waters’ purchase of the five-story town house at 157 E. 61st Street in Manhattan, which was broken yesterday by the New York Observer’s Max Abelson.
Originally listed for $15,995,000 and later reduced to $14,995,000, the four-bedroom town house was sold by Coach executive Reed Krakoff, who purchased it in 2001. Built in 1930, the gut renovated town house measures 6,030 square feet, according to public records. Features in the town house include French parquet floors, ebony powder rooms, a full-floor master suite, three full baths, three half baths, a double-height living room with a 26-foot wall of glass overlooking a landscaped garden, loft space and two terraces, the Post reported.
Last November, Waters (pictured) quietly sold his 23rd-floor unit in the Olympic Tower at 641 Fifth Avenue in New York for $14,500,000, according to public records. The singer and guitarist had purchased that unit in 2004 for $12,550,000. Krakoff, meanwhile, now lives in a 14,261-square-foot town house at 113 E. 70th Street that he purchased in late 2005 for $17,000,000, according to public records.
