This sprawling 7,000 square-foot duplex at 720 Park Avenue, was sold by Mark Magowan and his wife, Nina, who had lived and raised their children there since 1986. Mr. Magowan is president of Vendome Press, publisher of illustrated art and lifestyle books; the couple, now empty nesters, are–understandably–downsizing. The buyer is former Soros Fund management executive Scott Bessent. The duplex is wall-to-wall with prewar architectural details that have been fully restored, including the original wide-plank oak floors and 12-foot ceilings. The building is a classic brick and limestone Neo-Georgian gem designed by prolific Upper East Side architect Rosario Candela in the 1920s.
