Chiang of the Corcoran Group represented the Wildensteins in the deal, but was unavailable for comment.

The 25,000-square-foot, 41-foot-wide property, at 19 East 64th Street, is the former location of the Wildenstein Gallery and dates back to the 1930s.

Liao is not the property s first suitor.

Music mogul Len Blavatnik recently sued Wildenstein, claiming his family reneged on its promise to sell him the property for $79 million. A judge tossed the suit last month, saying the verbal agreement was not legally binding.

In 2014, the nation of Qatar walked away from a $90 million deal to buy the house, which it had planned to use as a consulate.

Previously, the record for a Manhattan townhouse was held by the the Harkness mansion, purchased by financier J. Christopher Flowers for $53 million a decade ago.
