CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo and her husband, Jonathan Steinberg, have paid $6.5 million for a five-bedroom townhouse on Manhattan’s East Side, according to public records.
The five-level town house, at 213 East 62nd Street, had been listed for $6.9 million. However, the immensely popular—and controversial—Bartiromo, 39, and Steinberg purchased the townhouse from relocation company Hewitt Associates, which in turn bought it for $7,333,000 from owners Michael Slocum and Melissa Pallot Slocum, who themselves had paid $6.8 million for it in 2004, according to public records.
Features in the townhouse, which is in Manhattan’s Treadwell Farm area, include four and a half baths, four fireplaces, moldings, hardwood floors, high ceilings, a new kitchen, gas heat, a five-zone central air conditioning system, an ADT security system with two cameras and a flat-screen monitor, new double-windows, an audio system throughout, and all-new mechanicals, according to listing information. Public records show that the townhouse was built in 1899 and measures 3,708 square feet.
Bartiromo and Steinberg previously had been renting in the Manhattan House apartment building at 200 East 66th Street, according to public records. That building is in the process of being converted to condos.
