80th Street Mansion for Sale….$90 Million

Not quite. The Woolworth Mansion! 

Curbed NY reports the digs hit the market today!

Manhattan’s $90 million mansion has officially hit the market. The 35-foot-wide townhouse at 4 East 80th Street, with its 10 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, and 3 kitchens spread over 18,000 square feet, was purchased by late gym mogul Lucille Roberts in 1995 for $6 million, and her family is attempting the resale now with hopes for a slight profit. If those photos aren’t enough, townhouse superbroker Paula Del Nunzio brings all her powers to bear on the brokerbabble, which goes through the history of the landmark house starting with its design by C.P.H. Gilbert for Frank Woolworth’s middle daughter.

Quite the sprawling mansion, to say the least…. a 50-person dining room, a 35-foot-wide library/wet bar/powder room combo on the third floor, a gym, a master suite with two sitting rooms on the fourth floor, and a staff suite.

 If Manhattan’s most expensive single residential sale ever was $53 million, and the next most-expensive listing on the market is $72 million, why pay $90 million for this?  Listing agent Del Nunzio says, “While the other great mansions that have come on the market in New York have been shells requiring total renovation, this is the only mansion to be formally available that has been fully renovated in a traditional prewar style. Never before could one acquire such a magnificent building in this condition.”

WOW. When is the open house?
