The 11,300-square-foot single-family house at 2 North Moore Strreet in TriBeCa has been purchased for $24 million by Mark and Noelle Zittman, according to an article published today by Jennifer Gould Keil in The New York Post.


The deal has not yet closed, according to the article, but the price sets a record for a "downtown" townhouse.


Mr. Zittman is 44 and a managing director of Guggenhseim Associates, a financial services company, and his wife is a former marketing director at Elle Magazine, according to the article, which noted that the sales price was "about $11 million off what was originally asked."


The building has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a three-car garage, three fireplaces, a gym, a 50-foot, heated lap pool, two roof decks with 1,500 square feet of exterior space,  and a servant's apartment with a separate entrance.


The building has a high speed Kone traction elevator, 7 central air conditioning units, air and water purification systems, radiant heated floors, Crestron audio and video systems on all floors and a state of the art security system.

The current owners of the mansion are Sherri and Steven Schnall, who dubbed it "Our Suburb." "Back in 2003," according to an April 8, 2008 article by Max Abelson at observer.com, "Mr. Schnall told The Times that things had 'taken off' for the firm he started, New York Mortgage Company, and that he needed recruiters to get all the new staff he needed. Then this year, Mr. Schnall announced his resignation from the firm, which had been bought out by one of the country’s largest residential lenders for $13.4 million."  She produces TV commercials.


According to Mr. Abelson's article, the Schalls put the house on the market that week for $35 million, "exactly $29,425,000 more than" that they paid for it in June 2005.


"Back then the building was in a much different state, mostly known for housing jam band shows at the NoMoore Bar. The Schnalls built a new six-story building on the site, and connected it smoothly with the former bar, a two-story landmark," Mr. Abelson wrote.


Wayne Turett was the architect of the conversion of the existing two-story building and its new, adjacent, six-story addition.
