Two of Jeffrey Epstein’s properties, one in New York and one in Palm Beach, have been listed for sale with a combined price of AU$154.5 million (US$110m).
The massive Manhattan townhouse, at 9 East 71st Street, features 10 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms spread over seven floors, and it is for sale for a whopping AU$123.6 million (US$88m).
Listed by Modlin Group, the mansion is touted to be standing “with provenance and commanding authority in a neighborhood steeped in New York’s richest history.”
The listing also states: “This Mansion presents a once in a life-time opportunity to own the largest single-family home in New York City. This historic landmark could easily present itself as a palatial consulate, embassy, foundation, or a museum to once again house some of the world’s greatest works of art.”
The tropical Florida mansion, in turn, sits at 358 El Brillo Way, Palm Beach, and features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, as well as a staff house, pool house and a three-car garage.
The stunning lakefront residence is listed by the Corcoran Group with a price tag of AU$30.8 million (US$21.995m) and it boasts water views to nearby Tarpon Island and Everglades Island, from its large, sparkling blue pool.
The rest of the properties included in Epstein’s real estate portfolio are located in the Virgin Islands, New Mexico and Paris, but haven’t been listed for sale thus far.
Epstein was convicted in 2008 of procuring an underage girl for prostitution and of soliciting a prostitute. He was arrested again a year ago, in July 2019, on charges of sex trafficking of minors.
He died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019, and his death was ruled a suicide, but a lot of speculation surrounded the cause of his death, with some conspiracy theories claiming Epstein was actually murdered.
