Judy Sheindlin, better known to TV watchers as “Judge Judy,” has picked up a duplex penthouse co-op at 14 Sutton Place South in Midtown East for $8.5 million, according to city property records filed today.
The four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom unit features two dining rooms, a library and a wine cellar that holds up to 900 bottles. The 14-story, Rosario Candela-designed building near East 56th Street has 93 units and a rooftop terrace.
The apartment came on the market for $9.75 million in February, listed with Stribling & Associates broker Linda Maloney.
Seller Paul Shiverick, an associate at New York-based hedge fund Seminole Capital Partners, and his family were looking to downsize, Maloney said.
Deborah Grubman of the Corcoran Group represented Sheindlin in the sale. She could not be immediately reached for comment.
Sheindlin and her husband, Gerald, who property records show mainly reside in Naples, Fla., sold a penthouse at the nearby 60 Sutton Place for $2.25 million in 2010. In June, they sold a pied-à-terre co-op at the Sherry-Netherland hotel at 781 Fifth Avenue and East 59th Street for $8.5 million, as previously reported.
