New York Mansion Features Red Leather Walls & Cosmetics Refrigerator!
When John H. Duncan, the architect of Grant’s Tomb, designed this Upper East Side Beaux Arts townhouse in 1903, he would never recognize it today nor its current price tag. Said to be the third most expensive home for sale in the city and priced at $85.5 million, owner Keith Rubenstein, head of Somerset Partners, knows how to spend on outrageous luxury.
Located on East 62nd Street, the six-story limestone encompasses 15,000 square feet of living space and may be the only modern day mansion sporting a refrigerator just for cosmetics. Included are five bedrooms, most ensuite, with elaborate separate baths and dressing room for the master with hers consisting of a suite of three rooms on two levels. Many ceilings in the home reach 17 feet in height, the billiard room walls are upholstered in red Hermès leather and there is a 2,500-square-foot landscaped rooftop terrace with outdoor kitchen. In addition to many more rooms for varying purposes, the lower-level spa contains a massage room, sauna, cold-plunge pool and a gym with glass roof for natural light.
