Most Expensive House in New York City August 03 2014
A 40-foot-wide mansion, one of the largest homes in the city, is on the market for a whopping $114 million — or half the price its owner, Wall Street investor Vincent Viola, spent to buy the Florida Panthers hockey team.
This spectacular completely renovated, very rare 40 foot wide mansion on the Upper East Side exudes the ultimate in sophistication and grandeur. Built in 1884, this 19-room masterpiece offering 7 bedrooms, 6 full baths and 3 powder rooms has been gutted and tastefully redone by the current owners, who have spared no expense on an exquisitely-detailed renovation, including a panic room.
The annual $178,246 property tax covers 20,000 square feet of living space and 2,500 square feet of outdoor options crowned by a three-tier roof deck with glimpses of Central Park and the cityscape.
