While Brooklyn's townhouses tend to garner most of the attention in today's real estate market, we've still got quite a bit of love left over for their ultra-fancy counterparts that still exist on the Upper East Side. Consider this 25-foot-wide, six-bedroom townhouse in Yorkville, which is gilded with modern conveniences, but decorated to look like the home of a 19th-century titan of industry.
First up, there's an imposing foyer with marble floors and a marble fireplace, one of several 18th-century French fireplaces to be found on the ground level.
Even the kitchen has its own fireplace, in addition to up-to-the-minute appliances and radiant heat floors. The imposing dining room (again, with its own fireplace) also opens onto an outdoor terrace that overlooks the house's private garden for meals al fresco. (The garden itself is also set up with a timed irrigation system).
The home is very much set up to accommodate an owner with staff; there are various service entrances and staircases throughout, and the listing describes the sixth-floor suite as "ideal for company or live-in staff."
Ready to shell out $21 million to live out your very fanciest of Old New York fantasies? The only thing that's missing is a carriage.
