Great American Songbook archivist Michael Feinstein and husband Terrence Flannery have sold their Upper East Side townhouse for $15.22 million.
It had been asking $15.9 million. The listing brokers were Douglas Elliman duo Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon.
The 16-room, 25-foot-wide townhouse – a combo of two separate homes – is at 143 E. 63rd St. The property comes with six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a gym and a meditation terrace.
Elaine Stritch used to rehearse here, and Postilio and Conlon were married in the living room in 2016. Feinstein tells us his primary residence is now in Carmel, Ind., where he is artistic director of the Center for the Performing Arts.
He is keeping his other homes in Los Angeles and in Carpinteria, Calif., where he plans to spend more time — though he has no intention of abandoning the Big Apple.
He will be back in the city to star in “That’s Entertainment: The MGM Years” at Carnegie Hall on Valentine’s Day and he continues to traverse the city with Postilio and Conlon, who are both longtime friends, on a hunt for a Manhattan pied-a-terre.
