Most Expensive Mansion in Manhattan for Sale

Manhattan is known as being an exclusive area, a beautiful and expensive part of New York, the place where your rent is sky high, but where you have the chance to meet celebrities and to be surrounded by style. Well, that explains the price of the houses sold there, like this mansion which is considered to be the most expensive in Manhattan and which is out for sale for the price of $90 million.

The mansion is located in 4 East 80th Street, Manhattan, New York and it belongs to the French Gothic style. Oh, yes, and it is considered the most expensive mansion in Manhattan so far. It was built in 1916 for the daughter of a retail tycoon at the time. Any way, it changes owners several times until it was bought by late gym mogul Lucille Roberts in 1995 and now her family wants to sell it for the above mentioned price.

This mansion is spread over 18,000 square feet, and features 10 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms and 3 kitchens. It is impressive from the first sight thanks to the beautiful limestone facade that mirrors the neo-French Renaissance  style of the building. The inside of the house is even more impressive with the huge dining room for 50 and the wooden panels on the walls. Any way, it is special and unique and the priciest mansion in Manhattan, at least so far.{found on bhsusa}
