Investor and dealmaker Ron Perelman is asking $60 million for his Manhattan townhouse. The property was floated last year at $65 million.
As for the five-level, 15,875 sq. ft. mansion, it is a Neo-Georgian with a red brick exterior that dates to 1930. A grand convex section capped with a balcony is the focus of the façade, a neat trick that suggests both symmetry and singularity; the first level is clad in rusticated limestone and features an arched, extended entryway supported by columns and ornamented with an original fanlight.
The interiors have been renovated, with some rooms showing more extensive revision than others. A den or salon converted to a spa retains its original fireplace, but otherwise has been entirely overhauled, with floor-to-ceiling pale hardwood paneling. The main kitchen, dayroom and library also add individual voices to the overall interior design.
The formal dining room could be the stunner, depending on the tastes of the viewer. It features a French door entry, Italian plaster finished in the color of terra-cotta, as well as a finely-detailed inlaid oak floor. The townhome’s third-floor is devoted to the master suite.
Outdoor spaces include a 41-foot by 13-foot garden with a waterfall, and a landscaped rooftop terrace.
Perelman’s net worth is around $4 billion.
