Producer Robert “Bob” Weinstein continues to unload his real estate portfolio amid business parter and brother Harvey’s sexual abuse allegations. In December, he sold his Upper West Side townhouse for $15 million, the same exact price he paid for it in 2009 with ex-wife Annie Clayton. Just last month, he unloaded his Greenwich, Connecticut mansion for $17 million after three years on the market and a 15 percent price chop. And according to city records released yesterday, his massive Central Park West duplex at the Beresford has now closed for $20.5 million, just a hair above the $20 million he bought it for in 2004 and much less than the $29.5 million it listed for nearly a year ago. The buyer is listed as Pamela Schein Murphy, wife of restauranteur Marc Murphy. Not only does the 14-room spread encompass 7,000 square feet, but it boasts two large terraces overlooking the park.
The duplex, located on the 16th and 17th floors, has all of the co-op building’s historic elements, including original moldings, herringbone floors, casement windows, and wood-burning fireplaces.
The lower level holds the living room and library with views of Central Park and the Museum of Natural History. There’s also a formal dining room, den/home office with ensuite bath, and a huge country kitchen.
Up an elegant, curving staircase are the five bedrooms, including the master suite which has two large walk-in closets, a dressing room, wood-burning fireplace, and access to the larger 32-foot-long terrace. The smaller, 15-foot terrace is located off the sitting room. Both outdoor spaces have hand-crafted wrought iron railings.
