Manhattan, you've blown us away again. We'll elaborate. Manhattan is known for nothing if not its exorbitant ridiculousness, right?
So when we heard that there was a 15,000-square foot mansion on Manhattan's real estate market listed at $84.5 million, we weren't that blown away. Like we said, New York City's trained us for absurdity.
When we found out that Keith and Inga Rubenstein put their Upper East Side townhouse on the market for $84.5 million, we were definitely entertained.
Mostly, though, we just wanted more information.
So, here's the scoop. According to Daily Mail, the mansion is partially adorned with Heremes leather walls, it's got a sweeping marble staircase, 17-foot tall ceilings, and a dining room adorned with handmade marquetry floors that were inspired by a Russian palace.
It's also got 6 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 6 levels, plus, a view overlooking Central Park.
So, yeah, it's definitely worth writing home about. Is it worth $84.5 million? Well, we're not real estate buffs or even amateur speculators, so we don't really know. What we do know is that the mansion sounds like the height of luxury.
On the lower level of the house, there's a massage room, a sauna, and a cold plunge pool. Plus, of course, a gym.
There's a boudoir, and it's good a freestanding deep-soaking tub, a fireplace, and a temperature controlled closet for furs. Oh, there's also a refrigerator designed for preserving makeup, but that should go without saying, right?
There's also an anti-fog shaving mirror in the Rubensteins' bathroom, which, duh. They've also got a fifth floor media room, with a wet bar, a billiard room, and, of course, those Hermes leather walls.
Why are the Rubenstein's abandoning their palace? Well, now that their youngest child is heading to college, they're planning to move downtown.
"We like to move every now and then," Rubenstein said. "We like projects."
Who will move into this behemoth of a house? Maybe Taylor Swift? Maybe Donald Trump? We don't know, but we do know it's going to be someone rich. We hope it's someone who really, really appreciates the sauna. We know we would.
You don't have to take our words for it. Check out the pictures below and prepare to have your minds. blown.
