Madonna to splash $1.7 mn on renovation
June 23, 2010 - New York
Madonna is planning to give her New York townhouse a major revamp and she will spend a whopping $1.7 million on its renovation.
The singer recently purchased a $32 million property in Manhattan's Upper East Side and she has filed applications with city authorities for building permits to add another floor to the luxurious home.
The addition will add 1,614 square feet to the East 81st Street mansion, bringing the total square footage to 13,847, not including the cellar. The home also has a 3,000-square-foot garden.
She is also tearing up the existing bedrooms and baths, creating a new master suite on the third floor with a boudoir flanked by a giant walk-in closet and a master bath. There will be a hair salon across the hall and a separate closet for her luggage.
If all goes to plan, the finished product will have 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, complete with a wine cellar and playroom for her son Rocco and adopted kids David and Mercy.
