A gorgeous townhouse in the middle of New York’s Upper East Side has just gone into contract for $US41 million,according to the Observer.
Tony and Claire White, the sellers of the townhouse, wanted $US46 million for the property, but the asking price eventually fell to $US41 million.
Built in 1965, the 11,100-square-foot, 14-room townhouse was designed by Rachel ‘Bunny’ Mellon, the heiress to the Listerine fortune who was married to the banking legend Paul Mellon.
She was a close friend of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and a notable horticulturist who redesigned the White House Rose Garden — needless to say, she had impeccable taste.
Her gorgeous UES townhouse with its own private garden, listed with Sotheby’s International Realty, is a testament to that.
Paul Mellon was the heir to one of America's great banking fortunes and filled his library with his extensive art collection.
