Top notch New York property, Henry T. Sloane mansion is now the property of industrialist Alexander Rovt. He didn’t buy it in the old fashioned way, he snapped up this Manhattan town house for $33 million. However, there is a significant story associated with this purchase; Rovt didn’t actually buy this property, neither at the auction nor in traditional home sale. Alexander Rovt bought the bank note as there was no buyer for this property that debuted on the sale list with an asking price of $33 million. Unfortunately, no buyer surfaced and the estates price reduced and reduced to $37.9 million, as it faced foreclosure auction. Now, Rovt is planning to restore the residence into a single family house, and will live here.
