Extreme light_ exceptional ceiling height… phenomenal rooftop views! With approximately 12,380 interior square feet, 2,500 exterior square feet, and 13 foot majestic ceilings, this unique limestone mansion is offered for sale for $29.95 million (or for a Digital Currency equivalent to 1.5 times USD offered price). Along with USD, the Seller will accept payment in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Ripple. Nothing speaks more truth of a New York City mansion than a proper entrance which emotes a sense of heft and a welcoming arrival; soaring ceilings creating voluminous rooms, and as is with everything in real estate – location, location, location. Fabulously situated on a premier block of the Upper East Side's Gold Coast between Fifth and Madison Avenues, this palatial 22-foot wide townhome is the tallest townhome on the block, towering above all the others around it. Built circa 1904 by architects Schwartz and Gross (renown for building The Mark and The Surrey hotels), A grand, solid-bronze gated entrance leads into an elegant entry vestibule which opens into a stately marbled reception gallery with an impressive wood-burning fireplace and original mosaic tiled floors that have an added European patina. A white marble staircase graciously curves its way to the upper floors. Beyond the reception gallery, through a private door, leads to what was formerly three professional offices. For 24 years, this majestic limestone mansion served as a family compound for its European owner, affording seven private living areas including the Fifth and Sixth Floors combined as a separate penthouse. This allowed for extended family and close friends to live together under the same roof and yet, living separately with a certain amount of privacy. The home's grand scale and impressive potential to be reconfigured into a full, single family mansion is apparent on each floor's 10 to 13 foot ceilings and extra-wide landing areas. There are twelve working wood-burning fireplaces including two outdoor fireplaces located on the Sixth Floor and Roof Terraces. An outdoor lift from the Sixth Floor Terrace ascends to the expansive Roof Terrace, providing a towering, 360 degree view of Manhattan's skyline. The expansive Lower Level is built-out the full length and width of the building lot and boasts unusually high ceilings, a laundry facility, staff room quarters, storage, mechanical storage and a vast vault under the sidewalk that partially extends underneath East 76th Street, supplemented by an outdoor lift to street-level. A rare and extraordinary opportunity to own an impressive lime-stone facade, beaux-art townhouse in a prime Gold Coast location with the structural bones to create an exquisite single family mansion of distinguished taste.
