Named “Vaux Mansion,” the 39-foot-wide townhouse is asking $17.25 million and measures a grandiose 6,861 square feet, according to the Douglas Elliman listing. The other three townhouses at the historic conversion — measuring 3,374 square feet to 4,639 square feet and asking between $10 million to $13.25 million — are in contract.
Originally designed by Calvert Vaux, the reimagined Victorian-Gothic building is a seven-story condominium with 25 one- to four-bedroom residences, including four penthouses, the aforementioned townhouses and 17 lofts. The four penthouses are all in contract. Ed Rawlings was the architect, while Eric Cohler designed the interiors and Edmund Hollander did the landscaping.
Back to Vaux Mansion: The six-bedroom, seven-bath townhouse has 2,048 square feet of private outdoor space, as well as a cellar level with private parking and storage. A private entry garden leads to the double-height foyer. Interiors feature a private elevator, laundry room, rift-sawn white oak flooring and a glass-wrapped double-height great room with wet bar and double-sided fireplace. The kitchen comes with Molteni light elm cabinetry, a Calacatta Gold marble center island and appliances by Sub-Zero, Miele and Bosch. The master suite is loaded with two walk-in closets and a master bath with double vanity, freestanding tub, separate stall shower and water closet.
