The brokerbabble for this massive Lenox Hill townhouse touts the listing as “new to the market” but we have seen this home before. In fact, the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom abode was listed in 2015 with the exact same $14.75 million price tag that it is asking today, however, a few things are notably differently. Let’s take a closer look.
The six-story story, dating back to 1870, still spans more than 6,200 square feet of interior space and boasts a plethora of original details, including its seven decorative fireplaces with ornate mantels, crown molding, coffered ceilings, and inlaid wood floors. Recent renovations have brought some contemporary aesthetic into the home and the kitchen is now bedecked in black and white lacquered decor with hints of red; herringbone wood floors, and a breakfast bar. The library embraces much of its original design but has traded in its white walls for a rich green hue.
The entire third floor gives way to the master suite and features a massive walk-in closet, a sitting room, and a private balcony. A free standing tub remains right in the center of the en-suite master bathroom. The fourth and fifth floors host more bedrooms and even more closets (11 to be exact) and a washer/dryer.
In the basement you’ll find a gym, storage space, and a huge temperature-controlled wine cellar that could easily store a couple hundred bottles. As for outdoor space, there is 1,750 square feet of it in the form of a lovely landscaped backyard, a roof deck, and a balcony.
