An Upper East Side mansion previously caught up in a short-term rental scandal has found someone with long-term interest for $27 million.

Claudio Guazzoni dei Zanett, founder and CEO of an eponymous IT consulting firm, and his wife Julia have sold the 12,000-square-foot home at 10 East 76th Street for $3 million below listing price, according to property records.

The couple made headlines in 2015, when they were fined $8,000 for illegally listing the Manhattan mansion for short-term rental. The home — located just three blocks from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s townhouse — was listed on VRBO and HomeAway for $500 a night.

The buyer was protected behind a limited liability company.

Serhant’s Loy Carlos was the listing broker and marketed the home off-market for a year before going public last September. Carlos declined to comment on the deal, citing a nondisclosure agreement.

The 22-foot-wide multi-family townhouse is the tallest on the block and features 2,300 square feet of outdoor space. It can be reconfigured into a single-family home, although it’s unclear if buyers plan to do so.

The home topped Manhattan’s luxury contract list when it was taken off the market in late April.

The Zanetti’s run-in with city politicians isn’t the only time a local has made headlines: In 1902, a respectable socialite had to “get out of town‘until his friends recovered from the shock of learning he had secretly married the owner, a widow whose late husband forbade her from remarrying in his will, according to the Daytonian in Manhattan, citing a contemporary report of The evening world.
