The House that Bunny Built
10 . 01 . 13
I walk down East 70th Street almost everyday which takes me past a very large townhouse with an imposing wall to keep out the prying eyes of the Upper East Side. Thanks to Curbed, I now realize it belongs to Bunny Mellon and is on the market for a cool $46 Million via Sotheby’s International Realty. At that price, there will be a small contingent of buyers. I really hope the new owners understand the history and significance of the beautiful courtyard and interiors and don’t gut it into some modern white box. I also wish real estate sites didn’t shoot everything with a wide lens. It distorts the image but I think the photos still give you an idea of the beauty behind the wall. Le sigh.
A mere 46 million? Let me get my check book out! I WISH… it’s too stunning for words!!!
THank you for sharing that beauty!!
No words, the beauty of that townhouse should remain untouched.
I wish I had 46 million.

I completely agree I hope they do not rip it apart because it is simply stunning as it sits now! I can not believe that European styled gem sits in NY. Thank for sharing!
First time on your blog and you have given me this gorgeous site to behold! I agree hopefully whom ever is lucky enough to move in wil keep it in the lush gorgeous state it’s in now. Thanks for sharing! I’ll be back 🙂
