buys a lot of view, but not in a style I like.
Am I alone, or this this place look a bit sterile?
Ostentation to nowhere.
Not a single cozy nook among the many crannies as far I can tell.

It's not my style either....too faux riche. I would rather sleek ultra modern minimalist.. you'd probably find that even more sterile LOL.

Which room is being used to display the body?

Too "grand ballroom"--maybe even too EnnHuway(Why?)Cee for me, then--this is a place more designed for entertaining and having a heated corporate board meeting for me (with the right windows for jumping out of--or maybe pushed through) while reading the Stock Market pages than offering any place to sleep in, given at this is a "city that never sleeps"...!

So, "not for me"...!

Where's the kitchen & laundry?

Post# 988230 , Reply# 7   3/26/2018 at 06:48 by tolivac (greenville nc)        

Somehow I would bet that the owner of this 27 mil house would not be doing the laundry-he would more likely have a laundry service do it!And for the kitchen-would they cater their meals?

It looks like the set for one of those 'first person' computer games (holding a gun of choice), shooting at various ghosties, aliens and baddies.

Either that, or an Agatha Christie.

Here's the floor plan(s), with an alternative design option.

It somehow looks too 'plasticky', too glossy, too artificial. A 'Z-list' celebrity's house.

I was going to say 'Dynasty' - but the Carringtons had far better taste!

I just knew

by the photos before I clicked the link it is in a Trump building. It's very eastern European, way eastern.
Design specific, which can detract from non specific buyers.
The prices in Manhattan are ridiculous. I realize the square footage is huge, but that decor would be a gut job for many, and the ultra rich do it, if the price is right.
Fred Trump built middle class housing. The son, never.
My cousin owned a condo four blocks form ground zero. Nothing this extravagant.
The taxes, and association upkeep fee's just became to expensive, so she sold and moved to Brooklyn, just blocks from the bridge. It has a ground floor retail space she rents out.
I'm not a high rise fan, views or not. I like a large lot and back yard.
NY has everything though, and a lot of it. You want gold leaf on your ice cream, they have it. You want gourmet Japanese pastry treats, they have them.
I on the other hand enjoy grilling out doors in summer.

"Which room is being used to display the body?" Agreed.

Wouldn't feel comfortable living there. I don't like it.

All that space an luxury and the "laundry" room has space just for a stacked washer and dryer?

Nah, thanks.

In this place--Washer/dryer,kitchen the owner of this place will have a group of MAIDS doing those things.Is this "house" an apartment in a high rise building?thats a turnoff for me.If I want a place like this want it to be a real detached HOUSE!!then you have a groundskeeper tend to the yard.I would have a collection of mowers-but the rest of the work the groundsman can do it.

It's probably safe to assume that most prospective purchasers own more than one residence .

Ghastly.  And the acoustics even worse.

Regarding the floor plans...

rolls_rapide's profile picture
Nine toilets? That's just completely decadent. Imagine having to clean that lot - you'd never be done!

The sitting room with the two attendant bedrooms connected to the service entrance (lower left on the plan's current layout), could be used by the various skivvies to live in. Either that or used as a Granny Flat.

"Movin' On Up, to that Dee-Lux Apartment in the Sky.

Elvis Presley's Graceland is a lot more "commoner friendly"--and I didn't see any kind of laundry equipment there, other than there being a small utility room, off the kitchen viewing exhibit, and most-likely keeping a small set for doing The King's underwear--all those rhinestones he's mostly in had to obviously done by a service of "special care"...

A collection of lawnmowers: Your groundsmen better be "expert mowers & careful drivers" with those...

Those "master bedrooms" hopefully have electric drapery, for when the great view out there tries to get a great view in there...

I'd like to know who would possibly want a 3/4 bath right off the dining room???

Post# 988513 , Reply# 19   3/27/2018 at 18:04 by vacerator (Macomb, Michigan)        
bath off the dining room?

one with colitis or Crohn's disease?

Guess with this 27 mil home you don't need mowers.The mowning would be the only yard job I would do.The rest of the yard work would have the groundskeeper do it.I do this at my house-have a small collection of rechargeable push mowers.Would love a HUGE yard with a collection of ZTR mowers-esp the Mean Green Machines rechargeable electric ZTR!!!That mower is a BEAST!!!!Puts many gas ones to shame!And it can run all day before recharging!You can even get a solar cell sunshade for it!!

As I recall, Thelma's house had a bathroom right off the dining area. Her husband kicked the bucket in there.

Joan Rivers was guest on Donald Trump's yacht. Another guest asked Joan what she thought of the decor. Joan told her I don't know you well enough to tell you what I think.

Post# 988683 , Reply# 23   3/29/2018 at 06:15 by vacerator (Macomb, Michigan)        
Joan also

continually claimed to be broke. I think it was part of her act.
My lot is not so large I can still manage the lawn and small gardens.
I can pay someone to cut and trim otherwise for a nominal cost.
Neither of us are interested in condo living.
