Manhattan real estate is notorious for its tiny apartments with astronomical prices, but this Upper East Side mansion seems fabulous enough to justify its $161 million price tag.
This spectacular completely renovated, very rare 40 foot wide mansion on the Upper East Side exudes the ultimate in sophistication and grandeur. Central Park views, soaring 12-32 foot ceilings, palatial entertaining space, the finest European-imported materials and state-of-the-art systems make it an unrivaled modern-day trophy home.
Built in 1884, this 19-room masterpiece offering 7 bedrooms, 6 full baths and 3 powder rooms has been gutted and tastefully redone by the current owners, who have spared no expense on an exquisitely-detailed renovation, including a panic room. With its 6 magnificent stories, approximately 20,000 /- square feet of living space and a 2,000 /- square foot roof deck, this massive 19-room residence epitomizes distinctive beauty and character.
The elegant ambiance is graced by huge windows, a generous flow of light, multiple fireplaces, an elevator, radiant heat flooring throughout, and high-tech control of everything from heating to sound and security.
The lower level is a recreation lover’s dream with a double height ceiling media room/home theater with a 12 foot screen and balcony, game room, bar, fitness room, sauna/steam, shower, plus a 23 x 12 foot swimming pool.
This showplace home right off Central Park is located in the heart of world-class museums, upscale Fifth and Madison Avenue shopping and critically-acclaimed restaurants. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime residential opportunity in Manhattan!
