After buying a $10.5 million condo at the Whitman, first daughter Chelsea Clinton, 33, and her well-to-do Jewish businessman husband, Marc Mezvinsky, 35, have finally listed their home at the nearby Grand Madison for $4.5 million, StreetEasy shows.

The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath condominium is listed with Marcy Grau of Stribling & Associates for $4.48 million — nearly $500,000 more than what the investment banker paid when he purchased it for $4 million in February 2008, according to The Real Deal.

The couple has been living at the Grand Madison, a 12-story, 191-unit building at 225 Fifth Avenue, since their 2010 wedding.

They will soon be calling home to a four bedroom, six-and-a-half marble bathroom home overlooking the scenic Madison Square Garden that’s been described by Forbes as “fit for NYC royalty.” The $10.5M mansion comes fully equipped with a 24-hour concierge, a key-locked elevator, and gym in tow.

The property was built in the new-Georgian style in 1925, and has been completely renovated to include a modernized kitchen set and facilities. The condo itself features very high ceilings, hardwood floors and elegantly decorated rooms.

As we’ve previously reported, the couple closed on an apartment at the Whitman — a four-unit condo conversion developed by David Mitchell of Mitchell Holdings at 21 East 26th Street — in March of this year.

A Clinton Affair

Despite mom being Methodist, and dad being a Southern Baptist, the Clintons embraced their only daughter’s choice of interfaith hubby, and Chelsea was happily married Jewish in 2010 at a lavish wedding filled with close family and friends.

Of the union, the former Secretary of State said at the time that “over the years, so many of the barriers that prevented people from getting married, crossing lines of faith or color or ethnicity have just disappeared.”

Likewise for father of the bride and former president Bill Clinton, who couldn’t help but gush when he learned that the two planned to wed, telling reporters Mezvinsky was a “great human being.”

While the youngest Clinton isn’t expected to be convert any time soon, in the past she’s attended Yom Kippur services with Marc at New York’s Jewish Theological Seminary, and she’s also has expressed interest in learning more about the Jewish faith, according to the Times.

So what does Chelsea’s well-to-do husband do for a living in order to afford this luxury lifestyle? A former employee of investment banking firm Goldman Sachs, Mezvinsky now works as a banker at the hedge fund G3 Capital.
