For Sale: The $64 Million Sloane Mansion

Continuing our real estate tour:

I was going to leave this one for the Sunday real estate round-up but a couple of you have mentioned it to me in the tips I decided to take a look at it a little early. And rightly so, a $64 million townhouse is worth a post to itself. The Henry T. Sloane mansion on East 68th Street in New York City would be the most expensive townhouse sold in city if it sells for the asking price (a record of $53 million was set for the Harkness mansion in 2006). It's not the most expensive listing price, as far as I know, the penthouse at the Pierre listed for $70 million still claims that honor.

Why so much? Part of it is location, the townhouse is located just steps away from Fifth Avenue on the East Side. Part of it is size, the building has 18,500 square feet...More at Luxist.
