Daughter of Billionaire Financier George Soros Finds Buyer for $24M W. Village Townhouse
A classic brick Greek Revival townhouse owned by the daughter of billionaire hedge fund titan George Soros has gone into contract, last priced at $23.95 million.
Andrea Soros Colombel and her husband Eric Colombel first listed the property for sale in 2012 with a price-tag of $29.5 million, nearly three times the $11.5 million they paid for it in 2006.
Listings brokers Shaun Osher and Emily Beare of residential brokerage Core did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the sale.
The 26-foot-wide townhouse, at 10 W. 10th St., was built in 1844 and has a whopping 21 rooms, including seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It has a grand formal living room with wood-burning fireplaces, a library with a wet bar, a fitness center with a ballet barre, a sauna and steam shower and a private 26-by-13-foot planted terrace on the top floor.
Soros Colombel is following in her father’s philanthropic footsteps. She’s best known as the founder and president of the Trace Foundation, which supports Tibetan culture and development among Tibetans in China.
She’s likely pocketing a pretty penny from the sale but not quite as much as her step mom, Susan Weber Soros, George’s ex, who sold her Upper East Side townhouse for $31 million last year.
