Buy Mae West's Old Upper West Side Mansion for $30 Million

New, 11 comments

We might quibble with the use of "celebrity mansion" in this listing, but nonetheless, 266 West End Avenue did once belong to actress Mae West. It hit the market today asking $30 million. For that price, the listing photos don't show much, perhaps because the place is in the middle of a total overhaul. Eventually, per the brokerbabble, it'll have a ball room, library, conservatories, sauna, steam room, elevator, and radiant heating. The makeover probably explains the markup: the current owner, documentary filmmaker and plastic surgeon Todd Wider, paid only $1.2 million for the 14,000-square-foot house in 2004. It looks like he had the inside track on that deal, since the seller's estate was represented by attorney Jedd Wider.
