Limestone mansion on Lenox Hill’s most prestigious street seeks $18.5M

It’s quite modest compared to its Hermès leather-clad neighbor

Located on a street that has opulent townhouses like the $85 million mansion that’s fitted with Hermès leather walls, and another megamansion that was once asking $120 million, this five-story townhouse is pretty subdued in comparison, and is asking a fraction of the price (though $18.5 million is nothing to scoff at).

Originally built at the turn of the 20th century, this five-story townhouse with a limestone facade recently underwent an extensive renovation, though it has still managed to hold on to some of its original features including the stunning central staircase that runs all through the mansion.

The home opens up into a formal foyer, which then leads to a sitting area with a bar, and beyond that is the home’s south facing garden. The dining/living room and the kitchen are located on the floor above that, which also comes with a fireplace, and a walk-in pantry.

The master bedroom and bathroom takes up all of the third floor, and the latter comes with a standing bath, a steam shower, and heated stone floors. Five additional bedrooms and four bathrooms are located on floors four and five. There’s also a raised roof deck on the top.

All the luxurious amenities don’t end there. There’s a cellar level as well that comes with a gym, a sauna and a steam room, a laundry area, and a wine cellar. Overall, some of the standout features in this 7,500-square-foot home include 13-foot-tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and radiant floor heating. All of that can be yours for $18.5 million.
