A stately Beaux Arts Upper East Side townhouse has just listed, asking $28 million, and is offering an unusual closing gift: a white Hummer, according to brokerage firm Compass.
The 10,800-square-foot house, which is located in the neighborhood’s historic district, has four floors, eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two powder rooms, an elevator, seven fireplaces, and a large terrace. It has a ton of old-world interior details, including Corinthian columns, “wedding cake” ceilings with carved panels and medallions, chandeliers and sconces, and herringbone floors.
Built in 1881 by architect John G. Prague, the building’s facade was altered in 1906 by the Herts Brothers for Alice A. Block, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s historic district report. George C. Clausen, a former Parks Commissioner, owned the house until 1901 when Block purchased the property and commissioned the new facade.
The home is located at 18 East 76th Street, between Madison and Fifth avenues, mere steps from Central Park and a short walk from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Taxes for the property will be $11,567/month. Miky Bonazzoli and Sebastiano Tronchetti Provera of Compass have the listing.
