Eclectic Upper East Side maisonette tries again for $19 million

New, 12 comments

The duplex first appeared on the market in 2014, five weeks after its sale closed


The six-bedroom Upper East Side maisonette of Gerald Erickson is back on the market, sporting some eclectic interior design and a price tag just a hair higher than it last sought in 2014. To refresh: the impressive property was snatched up by the convenience store chain scion in March 2014 for just shy of $12 million, only to reappear on the market five weeks later for $18.5 million. According to previous Curbed coverage:

Erickson's unit, a "townhouse-style" maisonette, was originally intended as two separate units, according to Brick Underground. He worked with the Brodsky Organization during construction to combine them, and actually signed the contract in October of 2012. As a result, he was able to get it for a "pre-construction price." All that explains the huge price increase in a deceptively short amount of time, but it still remains to be seen how much Erickson actually gets for the place.

How much Erickson will get for the place has yet to be seen, but this go-around the 4,800-square-foot duplex is seeking $18.995 million with Stribling’s Inez Wade, the same agent who helped Erickson ink the deal.

Here’s what a buyer is getting: a duplex maisonette that opens onto a private 973-square-foot garden with landscape design by Madison Cox; a hand-painted Christopher Peacock kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances like a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf six-burner range, Miele dishwasher, a filtered water system, and Sub-Zero wine refrigerator; a master suite with custom millwork closets; five additional bedrooms; an upstairs kitchenette; and an AV system including Sonos and Stealth Acoustics.

No word if the quirky pug art in the living room is included in the sale, but our guess is no.
