Last week, the five-bedroom Old Westbury, LI, home of Peter Madoff, the brother of Ponzi scheme mastermind Bernie Madoff, sold for $3.5 million — $300,000 above the asking price. To celebrate the occasion – the money is going to victims of the Ponzi scheme — here’s a look back at the Madoff family’s other luxe homes via the New York Post.
In July 2012, Peter Madoff’s wife, Marion, listed their 2,300-square-foot co-op at 975 Park Avenue for $4 million. The Upper East Side home sold for $4.6 million in January 2013.
Toy tycoon Alfred Kahn and wife Patsy bought the duplex co-op penthouse where Bernie lived during his house arrest for $8 million. In August 2014, the couple sold the home for $14.5 million to real estate investor Lawrence Benenson.
Bernie’s son, Mark Madoff, hanged himself in the living room of this apartment at the 158 Mercer Street in 2010. The 4,200-square-foot unit hit the market in 2012, as a $35,000-per-month rental. [NYP] – Christopher Cameron
