Edgar Miles Bronfman, Jr., CEO of Warner Music Group, listed his Manhattan’s Upper East Side townhouse for $27.25 million today. The mansion is former home to Muppets creator Jim Henson and his puppet-designing team.
According to the Real Deal, Henson had bought the house for $600,000 in 1977 from the New York State Pharmaceutical Association. Since then, the house became known as the Muppet Workshop where designers from Henson Associates created stories for the puppet characters such as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Big Bird. Bronfman has paid $28.5 million for it in 2008 with renovation plans, which have never been carried out since his move to London.
The building is on a lot 40' wide by 100 deep built 74' deep, according to the listing description. It also notes that a particularly outstanding feature of the building is its spectacular garden 40' wide and 26' deep that faces into other townhouse gardens that are equally magnificently planted for an ideal garden aspect.
Corcoran Group's Carrie Chiang and Brown Harris Stevens' Alina Pedroso and Paula Del Nunzio are the home’s co-exclusive listing agents.
