What was once the home of former Warner Music Group COO Robert S. Wiesenthal, is now basically unrecognizable after its latest transformation. Wiesenthal had listed it on the market back in October 2014 for $10.5 million, and property records show that an LLC (63rd Street Holdings LLC) scooped it up in May 2015 for the asking amount.
The new owners seem to have gone big on marble and white finishes throughout whereas the previous look was a bit more brown and beige. Some of this five-story townhouse’s best features however have endured including the 30-foot landscaped garden that’s past the eat-in kitchen on the ground floor.
This sprawling, limestone-clad townhouse spans 5,800 square feet and comes with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master bed and bath take up all of the third floor and are connected by a large walk-in closet. Since this is an Upper East Side townhouse after all, the master bathroom obviously comes with a wood-burning fireplace, and other schmancy fittings.
The other four bedrooms are divided equally on the floors above, and one of the rooms on the fifth floor comes with its own terrace. A second terrace is located right off the living room on the second floor, and this living area comes with 11-foot-tall ceilings, another wood-burning fireplace, and a library and formal dining room on the same floor as well.
For all of that effort, the current owners are asking $13.95 million, a pretty significant increase from when it was last on the market.
