A Manhattan co-op that belonged to Arthur O. Sulzberger Sr., the former publisher of The New York Times who died in September, sold for $12.5 million.

The buyer of the four-bedroom apartment at 1010 Fifth Ave. was Alessandro Saracino, according to property records.

The 11-room property was put on the market in December for $14 million. It includes a wood-burning fireplace, a library and three maids’ rooms, according to the listing, which touts it as “home of one of the world’s most prestigious and well-known families.”

“This is the A-line, which is the most prized line of the building, right on the corner of 82nd Street,” said Pat Wheatley, the broker from Sotheby’s International Realty. “You’re looking at the front of the Metropolitan Museum and, particularly in the evening, that makes you feel like you’re in Europe. It’s very grand.”
