A 10,505 square foot Neo-Georgian limestone and brick mansion originally designed by Percy Griffin in 1906 has sold in New York for $18.2 million. On this historical block, eighteen Neo-Georgian townhouses were built at the turn of the century by the Clark family, who also built The Dakota, a landmark apartment building. The 25-foot-wide mansion has undergone a complete renovation and restoration by architect Erica Tishman, Steve Mark of SMI Construction and interior design by Jacqueline Segura. The interior features six stories and the entire house is just over 10,500 square feet. The exterior spaces total 765 square feet and include a south-facing garden and a large terrace off the fourth floor. There is also the potential for a roof garden with views of Central Park and the iconic New York skyline. There are six bedrooms suites, seven luxurious renovated full bathrooms, four powder rooms, staff quarters, five wood-burning fireplaces, five skylights and ceilings that soar up to just under 13 feet. The elegant entertaining rooms all have grand-scale and include a salon, a living room, a formal dining room, a windowed eat-in kitchen with a breakfast room, an entertainment room, two media rooms, a library, and two offices. The home seamlessly integrates a historical restoration with all the modern conveniences and technology of today. An elevator services all of the floors as well as two staircases. The systems include eight-zone central air conditioning, a humidification system, Lutron lighting, motorized shades, an automatic watering system for all the outdoor spaces, and a whole house water filtration system. Throughout the residence, there are original recast moldings, new hardwood floors, custom millwork, olive knuckle hinges, Nanz hardware, and new windows. The mansion had been on the market since April 2019 for as much as $22.8M. On top of the $18.2 million purchase price, the new owner will also have to pay $178,977 annually on tax.
