Per Skarstadt just bought a five-story townhouse, at 115 East 73rd Street between Park and Lexington Avenues:
“Per really wanted it,” said Wiggins. “We spoke like every two weeks for like two and a half years. Then the broker called me and said it was back on.” […]
Wiggins said the 10,000-square-foot mansion would be gut renovated. “It needs everything,” she said. She said the house was designed by architects Buchman & Fox, who also designed the Sherry-Netherland Hotel. It has 12-foot ceilings on each floor, floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor and a garden in the back.
Wiggins said Skarstedt plans to use the townhouse as a residence. His eponymous gallery has three locations — 20 E. 79th Street, 550 West 21st Street and 23 Old Bond Street in London.
