Millionaire private investor and man-about-town Bradley Zipper purchased this Little Italy townhouse in 2004 to use as a massive bachelor pad where he could host celebrity soirees and lavish business events for up to 400 guests. After dropping $3.385 million on the property, he hired Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the famous husband-and-wife design team, to deck it out. The result definitely fit the bill, rocking a 900-bottle wine cellar that’s a replica of one in a Meatpacking District club, a 14-foot mahogany and pewter bar imported from Paris, and a vintage 1940s pool table surrounded by graphite walls. Zipper started trying to unload the house in 2013, first for $15 million, then $13 million, next as a $35,000/month rental, and again in 2015 for $15.5 million. Now the six-story 5,000-square-foot townhouse with six outdoor spaces is for rent once again asking an adjusted-for-inflation $40,000/month.

Built in the 1900s, this unusual townhouse in the heart of downtown Manhattan has been meticulously gut renovated with no expense spared. The 25-foot-wide home offers three bedrooms and four baths. On the main floor, you’ll find 12-foot-high ceilings above a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen and open living and dining areas. An adjoining outdoor courtyard with a 120-inch projection screen, fire pit, and BBQ grill allow you to take the party outside.

One floor down in the basement level is an impressive wine cellar with room to host a private dinner party.

The second floor is dedicated to the master suite. The vast bathroom has double sinks, a custom walk-in closet and Juliet balconies. The third floor holds the guest bedroom with ensuite bath and a recreation room which can easily be converted into a bedroom (also with its own bathroom).

The fourth floor really gets the party started, with a grand bar made of zinc and mahogany (imported from Paris, as mentioned). The interior room is flanked by outdoor terraces for more seamless outdoor/indoor entertaining. The top floor offers a rooftop terrace with a jacuzzi and open views including the historic Beaux-Arts Police Building and the Freedom Tower.
