With his Montauk beach house put on the market little more than a week ago, U.S. Marshals have quickly moved on Bernie Madoff’s other manors, today listing the Ponzi fraudster’s Palm Beach, Fla. estate for $8.5 million and naming a broker chosen to offload his New York City Penthouse. The feds estimate the apartment is worth $7.5 million, but the luxury penthouse is expected to sell for $9.9 million. Two well-known Manhattan agents, Anne Corey and Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty won the bidding war for the 4,000 square-foot Upper East Side apartment, a luxury duplex with a wraparound terrace offering panoramic views of the city that comes fully furnished with a $40,000 Steinway piano, $35,000 Persian rug, tea tables valued at $20,000 and TV newsman Matt Lauer as a neighbor.
