    It’s lovely. I really like that blue stone used as the bar top – anyone know what it is? I don’t like the metal gates surrounding the front – reminds me of the New York they showed in Home Alone 2. As usual, holy moly price.

      I am sure it is Swedish Green Marble, it just looks blue in the photos. If it is blue then I have never seen that kind of marble in blue in my life.

        It does have sort of a teal tint to it in the pic. But, I have seen blue marble before, so it’s possible. Duane and Lola Hagadone used it for the outdoor tables on their yacht. You can sort of make out the blue marble in this (crappy) pic: http://tinyurl.com/ayh96ma. Incidentally, Lola had the tables made several times until the blue was juuuuust right.

          It’s probably just over saturated, but I’ve never seen that shade before. Almost like a turquoise. Blue marble is nice though. Works a lot better than the boring beige granite we typically see. Example:

    It’s gorgeous inside and out. I think the front facade is particularly attractive. The interior is beautiful, but it’s too frou-frou for my taste. My all-time favorite NYC townhouse is still this one: http://tinyurl.com/cpce26v

        In my opinion, THAT’S how you do a townhouse! The level of detail in the decor is stunning.

    Its a very lovely house and the floor plan isn’t bad, though it leaves me wondering how one would get the food from the kitchen to the dining room without the use of a dumbwaiter. It seems cumbersome to walk all the way to the elevator or staircase with a platter full of food.

    Exquisite artistry . You just can’t get any more classy than a Lenox Hill townhouse filled with European fabrics and furnishings. This home reportedly has 18th and 19th century chandeliers ( the one hanging in the library weighs 450lbs ! ) If I lived here ,I would hire Yo Yo Ma to play the cello for my guests in the music room before dinner because I think he has a cool name . This place went on the market in 2008 for $35m and is now working its way to a more realistic asking price . Remember, this house is not quite near the park, I think it is about 4 blocks away . The owner bought it in 1986 for $4m, then put another $8m into renovations in 1991 . New wiring took 3 months to install . Designer Ronald Brick was hired to make the place as elegant as possible .

    I absolutely love this home, however, she may need another infrastructure renovation soon ? …big money.

      A couple of glasses of wine and I’d be asking him when his new set of tires are coming out…

        lol…. you mean, Yokahama ? I wonder if he goes by Yo Yo or just Yo ? I bet he is a sloppy drunk because he is Asian. He is probably the life of a party, ‘ Hey Yo, play another song” 🙂
