Qatar Prime Minister, Sheikh Hamad purchased a townhouse for nearly $50 million at 22 East 71st Street, reported the NY Post. The deal was made in absolute secrecy without the involvement of a broker, but the deal was instead done through Tower Management Holdings in order to protect the identity of the Prime Minister.

The townhouse was bought from RFR Realty President Aby Rosen who reportedly was famed for throwing incredible parties at the townhouse.

The townhouse, which is located between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue has an astonishing 21,000 square feet (1,948SM) on five floors and was built in 1922. It had been on the market since April 2008 before it was sold to the Sheikh.
