Upper East Side 'Waterfall Mansion' is Back on the Market for $39 Million
The 10,800-square-foot home boasts an art gallery, a giant spa and its very own indoor waterfall.
Is it a house? An art gallery? A day spa? The Waterfall Mansion is all of these things and more, and it's officially back on the market after a mid-summer hiatus. Owned by developer Kate Shin, the six-story townhouse is named after the 23-by-20-foot indoor waterfall and reflecting pool on the main floor — the biggest indoor waterfall in the city. We'll hazard a guess that the dining room overlooking the waterfall is also one of the only dining rooms in the city with waterfall views.
At 10,800 square feet, the townhouse also boasts a 1,000-bottle wine cellar with a "testing bar," an art gallery (which has been used to host public openings), a landscaped roof terrace and a 2,300-square-foot spa lounge that includes a jacuzzi, sauna, gym and massage room. Architect Toshiko Mori outfitted the home with 580 lighting fixtures. Paired with the rear facade of glass, there's no shortage of bright, well-lit rooms.
The mansion is on the market for $39 million, which is significantly higher than its last listing price of $27 million (down from $31 million last year).
