The positively palatial 16,560-square-foot Greenwich Village townhouse of former Bear Stearns co-president Warren Spector has returned to the market with the equally substantial price tag of $59.5 million. Greenwich Village megamansion aficionados may remember the townhouse from its stint on the market in 2017, when Spector first listed the exquisite digs at 11-13 West 10th Street.
Spector and his wife, the late actress Margaret Whitton, snagged the double-wide townhouse in 2007 for $34.5 million and made some lavish upgrades before it was originally listed at $59.5 million. Those upgrades, per a 2017 feature in the Wall Street Journal, include the addition of a garden and a double-height library, as well as some posh overhauls for entertaining like the addition of a music room that Spector and Whitton often hosted fundraising events in.
The home’s unchanged price tag may seem overreaching, but the banker should get a little bit of slack: Spector told the Journal that he would donate all proceeds from the townhouse’s sale to charity.
Now on to the details: The townhouse has 23 rooms in total spread over six floors (serviced by an elevator from the cellar to the top floor, of course.) There are eight bedrooms along with all of the amenities you’d expect from a $59.5 million townhouse like wood-burning fireplaces, a high-end chef’s kitchen, a full-floor master suite with its own balcony and a master en suite clad in blue onyx, a roof deck with an enclosed greenhouse, and oh so much more.
