160 John Street, the old estate that was foreclosed on a couple of years ago, has been renovated and put up for sale at $21.5 million. It’s featured in a GT article today entitled “Man Caves”, and I suppose thats what it offers, as well as 14,000 sq. ft. of house, 9 bedrooms, 16 baths and a p0lo pony track.
It doesn’t do much for me, but then, I’m very much not part of its target market, so the owner, the former Managing Director of Goldman Sachs, will hardly lose sleep over any disappointment. And he’s unlikely to lose sleep at all regardless of whether anyone buys it soon, given that he has other renovation projects underway – I think it’s his hobby – including the Newport cottage Miramar ($17 million, plus $20 million more in renovations), and a 1,471 – acre manse in North Wales, once owner by Walter Chrysler, Jr., 38,500 square feet, $21 million + renovations.
It may be good to be King, but that’s a lot of property to keep track of; no thank you.
