The sale of the late Tony Randall’s sumptuous co-op unit in the Beresford building on Central Park in Manhattan has just been recorded, and records show that the 10-room apartment sold for $17,850,000, or $350,000 above its asking price.

The New York Observer’s Max Abelson today wrote about the closing of Randall’s unit, as did the New York Post’s fine celebrity real estate columnist Braden Keil. Records show that the purchase was recorded yesterday morning. Public records confirm the Observer’s report that the buyer was “hedge fund superstar” Vikram Pandit.




We previously wrote about Randall’s unit back on September 5, following up on the fine work by the New York Post, which had broken the news that the co-op unit had gone to contract. And, we first wrote about Randall’s unit back on May 11, when it first went on the market for $17,500,000.

As we long have noted, the unit is a joy to look at. Located on the sixth floor of the Beresford, at 211 Central Park West, Randall’s erstwhile unit has four and a half baths, coffered ceilings, four bedrooms on the park, eight walk-in closets, a 21-foot eat-in kitchen, a private elevator landing, high ceilings, a fireplace and “entertainment rooms of grand proportions,” according to listing information and the Observer.
