The last time the townhouse changed hands was in 2012, when Peter E. Bacanovic, the former Merrill Lynch broker who spent several months in prison for his role in the Martha Stewart insider trading scandal, sold it to a Cyprus-based LLC for about $6 million, according to Business Insider.



The identity of the new owner remains unknown. Asher Alcobi at Peter Ashe, who had the listing, told the Observer that the luxurious home was on the market because it was too small for its previous owner.
