Alas, the seventh time would not be the charm for the opulent townhouse at 163 East 64th Street, dubbed “Versailles in Manhattan.” The five-bedroom mansion is back with a new asking price, and while common sense would dictate a lower price after so many tries on the market, that’s not the case. The house is seeking $25 million this go-round.
The home has changed brokerages more times than we care to count and now Charles Rutenberg will have its turn at attempting to unload the property, albeit with far less intriguing listing photos.
The Neo-Georgian house, owned by commercial broker Kenneth D. Laub, first made its debut way back in 2008 for a whopping $35 million, but has fluctuated in price since. The right owner—should they ever come along—would enjoy 13-foot ceilings, eight marble fireplaces, and details in every nook and cranny of the four-story palace. The rather over-the-top decor is presumably not included.
