New York City has seen its fair share of ridiculously overpriced rentals. There was that $500,000/month full-floor pad within the Pierre that took the crown for the most expensive rental in the city and a rental atop the Time Warner Center is currently seeking $110,000/month , so it should come as no surprise that there’s a historic mansion on the Upper West Side going for a cool $100,000/month (h/t Brick Underground).
For us plebes, paying there’s no words that can justify spending six figures on rent each month but if you’re part of society’s upper echelon, perhaps this is somewhat of a bargain. After all, the home is a six-story Beaux-Arts mansion with eight bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces, a butler’s pantry, excerise room, and much more all spread across 15,000 square feet of space. Originally built around 1909 for a Wall Street financier, the home has been renovated to incorporate modern luxury while preserving its many historic details.
The living room features herringbone-laid wood floors, soaring ceilings, wood paneling, and some serious wall molding. The kitchen has been revamped with the finest in modern appliances: the stove has been imported from France, there are two Miele dishwashers, and marble countertops, of course.
Many of the bedrooms within this behemoth of a single-family home could actually put some Manhattan studios to shame. And not that storage space should be an issue within a 15,000-square-foot home, there are closets galore.
What would a $100,000/month rental be without outdoor space? Luckily, that isn’t an issue here. There is a garden, two terraces, and a huge roof deck that all add up to above 2,540 square feet of outdoor space. Oh, and the home is conveniently located near Central Park as well as Lincoln Center, so there you have it.
