John Mayer, the multiple Grammy award winner, took just three months to find a buyer for his apartment, situated in the highly desirable Soho region of downtown Manhattan at 225 Lafayette Street.

The apartment, comprizing  two-bedrooms and two-bathrooms, even went for $200, 000 above the Mayer’s original asking price of  $3.89 million, with the new buyer’s identity remaining unknown.

John Mayer has close to doubled his money on the  2, 063-square-foot property which he paid  $2.17 million for in 2005. In the last couple of years Mayer has rarely been seen at the property, preferring the serenity ( and the privacy) of his secluded ranch in Montana, to escape the clear of the paparazzi.

The corner  apartment building in which Mayer’s apartment is situated,  was built in 1924 in  the Beaux Arts architectural style and at one time housed a bank.

Now a luxury apartment block, 225 Lafayette Street is stylised by its  roof deck for the common use of the building’s tenants, among them international model Theodora Richards and actress Dakota Fanning.
