$27M UES Mansion Includes Famous Artwork, Golden Couch

New, 27 comments

The five-story townhouse at 132 East 62nd Street sold less than four years ago for $14 million, and now the 20-foot-wide single family mansion is back on the market for nearly double the price. Before jewelry designer Suzanne Sheik sold the place back in 2010, she spent two years renovating the house, but that wasn't enough for current owner—"an accomplished designer" according to the brokerbabbale—who spent an additional three years renovating. The makeover itself isn't enough to warrant the $27 million price tag, but the house comes with all of the furniture and artwork shown in the listing photos. Such as? Artwork by Anish Kapoor, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Piet Mondrian; books signed by William Faulkner, Norman Mailer, Truman Capote and Joan Didion; a Baccarat crystal chandelier; a gold-plated couch; and an oil painting by Frank Sinatra. The 5,129-square-foot house has an elevator, a secret garden-like backyard, six bedrooms, a library, and a wood-paneled study. Is it worth $27 million or will it soon see the PriceChopper?
