After a long run on the market–renting at $25,000/month, $19,000/month, then listed for $13.95 million–restaurateur Keith McNally‘s 4,600 square-foot Greek Revival townhouse has sold. According to The Real Deal, an unknown buyer paid $10.3 million. McNally, behind buzzy establishments like Balthazar, Cherche Midi, Odeon, Café Luxembourg, Schiller’s and Minetta Tavern, bought the 1842 townhouse at 105 West 11th Street in 2000. The design is fit for a restaurateur, with a stunning kitchen, walk-in wine cellar and rustic French-country interiors.
The 21-foot-wide, five-bedroom, four-story home includes all sorts of impressive details, like five wood burning fireplaces, imported timber beams, reclaimed wide plank oak floor boards, casement windows, Venetian plaster walls and landscaped outdoor spaces.
Stone steps to the parlor floor lead to the grand, open living, kitchen and dining space. A skylight tops the kitchen, finished with a farmhouse sink, commercial grade range and copper countertops. The 10-person dining area is located adjacent to a wood-burning brick hearth. Right outside is a second dining terrace, enclosed by a wisteria covered pergola.
The third floor is dedicated to the master suite. It’s got two wood-burning fireplaces, a closet-lined dressing room, private study and customized master bathroom with a floating cast iron tub.
There are two more bedrooms on the top floor with en-suite baths, one of which overlooks the backyard garden.
The home’s garden level holds a private guest suite, with a kitchenette, en-suite bath and casement windows that overlook the back garden.
And don’t forget the walk-in wine cellar in the basement! Overall, a stunning house that justifies it’s impressive $10 million selling price.
