It’s official, rocker Jon Bon Jovi is now free of the 158 Mercer Street digs he’s been trying to unload for the past for two years. First reported by The Real Deal, city records filed this afternoon show that the home traded hands for a whopping $34 million; although at first this seems like a pretty penny, it’s actually way down from its original ask of $42 million. The buyer is Austrian-American businessman and investor Gerhard Andlinger, who previously called a sprawling 8,300-square-footer at the Time Warner Center his home.
Bon Jovi originally purchased the penthouse back in 2007 for $24 million, then listing it in 2013 for the aforementioned $42 million. The home saw several price cuts over its stint on the market, as well as interest from supermodel Heidi Klum last September, but for the most part stood stagnant on the market over the two years.
Buyer Andlinger will be downsizing just a bit, as the new Soho six-bedroom home comes up at just 7,837 square feet versus the 8,000-plus he was stretching out in previously. But living “small” is all the rage right now, so he can at least claim some cool cred.
