Famed mezzo-soprano Nedda Casei has lowered the asking price of her Sutton Place co-op to $5 million from $5.5 million, according to StreetEasy.
The listing for the four-bedroom, four-bathroom spread first hit the market in October. Fully customized to fit her tastes, the home — located at 16 Sutton Place — comes equipped with wood-plank ceilings, a gas fireplace and pink walls. The apartment also comes soundproofed, has two terraces with irrigation systems and is fully outfitted with a stereo system that has controls in all rooms.
Casei was a leading mezzo-soprano with the Metropolitan Opera here in New York for 21 years. She made her operatic debut in Brussels in 1960, and has since gone on to sing across the world — in concert, on television and on audio formats.
Lori Carlis of Halstead Property has the listing. A Halstead spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and Casei could not be reached. — Zachary Kussin
