A five-story townhouse at 132 East 62nd Street in the Upper East Side that has resurfaced on the market for $24 million comes complete with artworks by Andy Warhol, Anish Kapoor, and Roy Lichtenstein, books signed by William Faulkner and Joan Didion–and an oil painting by Frank Sinatra (h/t Curbed). The decked-out manse was renovated from stem to stern by jewelry designer (and singer Duncan Sheik’s mom!) Suzanne Sheik, who bought it from a Chanel exec and sold it in 2010 to “an accomplished designer” who spent another three years renovating. The home appeared on the market for $27 million in 2014, and as a rental for $65,000 a month.
The 20-foot-wide 5,129-square-foot townhouse has a gated entrance, a 32-foot-long south garden with a fountain, six fireplaces, central air, a new elevator, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and not one but five master bedrooms. Add to that a security system and wine cellar.
The current listing calls it “a true showplace,” which is certainly accurate, considering it also comes furnished with the furniture and artwork shown in the listing photos. In addition to the aforementioned art, the loot includes a Baccarat crystal chandelier and a gold-plated couch. It also comes with a $73,000 annual tax bill.
