(Bloomberg) — Ron Perelman has put two adjacent Upper East Side townhouses on the market for $75 million, as the billionaire continues to pare his holdings.
The connected Manhattan homes are on East 63rd Street, with the larger of the two being offered for $65 million, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.
The listing, earlier reported by the Wall Street Journal, comes as part of a wide-ranging divestment by Perelman. He told Bloomberg last month that he wanted to simplify his life after “holding onto too many things that I don’t use or even want,” while his business empire needed to react to the unprecedented economic environment.

Perelman has recently sold several companies he owns, as well as hundreds of millions of dollar of art. A painting by Cy Twombly sold for $38.7 million Tuesday at virtual auction at Christie’s, after his Gerhard Richter painting sold for $28 million at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong.
