New York, Sept 23 (ANI): Chelsea Clinton and her husband Marc Mezvinksy got a heavy discount for a four-bedroom apartment in the celebrity-studded Whitman condominium building on Madison Square Park, city records filed this month have revealed.
The 33-year old daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid 9,250,000 dollars for the four-bedroom apartment, which is said to be 1.2 million dollars less than the 10.5 million dollars asking price, and 750,000 dollars below the amount the other two occupants paid for their 5,000-square-foot units, the New York Post reported.
Clinton- Mezvinsky purchased the property, which the Bill and Hillary toured in early March, using a company called Cafema LLC, and took out a 5 million dollars mortgage in addition to a 500,000 dollars line of credit, records show.
A spokesperson said that the couple had agreed to buy the apartment last year and as they were the first to do so in the building, they received a discount.
The apartment was on the market for 4.7 million dollars, and is listed as under contract on the Stribling real estate web site. (ANI)
