The most expensive mansion in Manhattan was put up for sale with a mind-blowing asking price: $90 million! The French Gothic townhouse is situated on East 80th Street and it was built in 1916 for the (spoilt) daughter of Frank Winfield Woolworth, an American businessman after whom the mansion was named.
It is a 35-foot wide building with a total area of over 18,000 square feet, spread over seven floors. Everything inside has been carefully renovated in a traditional style, reminiscent of the prewar era: the 10 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, 3 kitchens, and the formal dining room, capable of hosting up to 50 people at once. The house also features an elevator and an immense paneled library, as wide as the entire mansion.
Woolworth residence was sold in 1995 to entrepreneur Lucille Roberts, who had a chain of ladies health clubs, and who bought the building for only $6 million! She passed away in 2003 and now her family are selling the mansion for the incredible sum of $90 million. They are also willing to rent it, if anyone is willing to pay $210,000 per month.
