A former Goldman Sachs executive is the mystery buyer of Jeffrey Epstein’s palatial Manhattan home. It’s one of the largest private properties in the city, according to Insider. He bough the house after winning big on the current Bitcoin gains.
Michael Daffey purchased the seven-floor Upper East Side house for $51 million. He closed deal last week, according to a spokesman. The 28,000-square-foot property was listed in July for $88 million. Daffey bought the home with cash and a bridge loan, the spokesman said.
“Mr. Daffey is a big believer in New York’s future. And he will take the other side of all the people who say the city’s best days may be in the past.” That’s according to an email from Stu Loeser, a spokesman for Daffey.
