Goldman Director, Wife Pay $7.3M for 1100 Park Ave Co-op
Kathryn Roche, a brand management consultant at LaPlaca Cohen and Goldman Sachs managing director Harold P. Hope III, just paid $7.303 million for an enormous 11-room co-op apartment at 1100 Park Avenue.
Roche and Hope have been married 4½ years.
Griswold sold high and bought low: she closed on a 2 bedroom penthouse co-op at 49 east 96th Street last fall, paying just $1,736,875. That’s a wise strategy.
The dining room and living room in this Carnegie Hill co-op overlook Park Avenue, while the master bedroom, a second bedroom, and the library face East 89th Street.
Curiously, this co-op has no less than three maid’s rooms. One maid’s room is currently a home office and another is used as a storage room.
Don’t worry: for $7.3 million, Hope and Roche also get another private storage room in the co-op’s basement, adjacent to the cooperative’s own “state-of-the-art” gym.
There appears to have been a bidding war on this high-floor co-op, since it sold for $103,000 over the original $7.2 million asking price.
Brown Harris Stevens Managing Director and SVP Alina Pedroso had the exclusive, getting a contract signed in exactly three weeks after it went on the market in November 2009.
