Cynthia “Thia” Breen, Estée Lauder’s president for North America, and Laurie Dowley, senior VP of Elizabeth Arden, have just bought themselves an $8.6 million condo at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 20 East End Avenue, city records show. They paid a little over the apartment’s $8.5 million ask.
The couple are evidently big fans of the neighborhood; they own two apartments nearby at 171 East 84th Street, and last month sold another pad at 90 East End Avenue for almost $3 million.
Their new 3,037-square-foot spread comes with three bedrooms, a library, 11-foot-high ceilings, herringbone oak floors, a chef’s kitchen with Brazilian quartzite countertops, marble bathrooms and a cast iron soaking tub. But alas, the listing doesn’t provide much in the way of pictures.
The building also offers a billiards room, a wine cellar that can fit 8,000 bottles, a children’s game room, a fitness center and spa, a sauna and a bike storage area.
