Real estate legend and “Shark Tank” star Barbara Corcoran bought a glamorous duplex penthouse on the Upper East Side back in April 2015. She and her husband, former FBI agent William Higgins, dropped $10 million on the pad, quite the steal considering it originally listed for $17 million. A year later, they listed their other home in the ‘hood, a classic Rosario Candela-designed co-op at 1192 Park Avenue. Now, five months later, they’ve unloaded the home for $4.87 million (h/t NYP), just under the $4.9 million asking price and a good deal more than the $3.5 million they bought it for in 2000.


The three-bedroom, corner,  pre-war co-op has views in three directions, including ten large windows overlooking Central Park. There’s a 40-foot entry gallery with striking columns and decorative picture moldings (perfect for displaying one’s art collection).



The corner living room has a wood-burning fireplace and, through a columned passage, leads to the formal dining room. Off the other side of the living room is a cozy den (which is technically the third bedroom). It’s separated by pocket doors and features floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving and charming window shutters.


The massive kitchen is a little bit country, with its wooden counters, bead board open shelves, arched cabinet moldings, farmhouse sink, and decorative brackets.


All three bedrooms overlook the park, and the master has walk-in closets and an ensuite bath.

According to the Post, the buyers of the unit are physician Jeffrey Lautin and his wife Jacqueline, who were once featured in a Times article where they discussed the trials of owning their former West Village townhouse.
