Woolworth Mansion on Market for $90 Million
January 30, 2013 - New York
Demand for real estate for the ultra-rich appears to be making a comeback.
An unusual sight even for those shopping on the high end has come on the market: a landmark listing of $90 million for a luxurious mansion at 4 East 80th Street -- making it the most expensive Manhattan listing right now.
The property can also be rented out for a whopping $210,000 per month, according to The New York Times.
The mansion was one of three dwellings built in the early 1900s by the late discount store billionaire Frank Winfield Woolworth for his daughters.
It is a 35-foot-wide French Gothic townhouse with a limestone facade, boasting 18,000 square feet of space.
The seven-floor dwelling is equipped with an elevator and an enormous 35-foot-wide library.
It has a formal dining room with a 50-seating capacity, a parlor floor with 14-foot-high ceilings, 10 bedrooms, 11 and a half bathrooms, and three kitchens.
