A New 20,000-Square-Foot Megamansion Might Be Coming To Manhattan’s Greenwich Village

According to brokers, the property will be the neighborhood’s “most unique and spectacular piece of real estate.”

For the filthy rich living in the heart of Manhattan, condos in glassy towers seem to be the most common option these days. Lavish pads with oversized windows, however, are not everybody’s cup of tea.

Some folks would rather have privacy, a spacious backyard, and other perks only available to the house owners—but this lifestyle often entails moving to areas like Park Slope.

The new Greenwich village property that has just hit the market is one of those rare cases when location in the heart of Manhattan and a private suburbia-style abode are not mutually exclusive. To be precise, it’s actually multiple properties combined into one—three neighboring multi-family townhouses at West 13th Street. Combined, these houses encompass about 20,000 square feet with 62-foot-wide frontage and create an unparalleled opportunity for a megamansion.

According to Robert Kaliner, owner and developer of one of the townhouses, if these three properties sell together as a package, they could bring the sellers no less than $75 million. Of course, there is always an option to grab any two of adjacent three townhouses separately. The brokers, however, hope that the property combo will sell in its entirety.

Greg Corbin, executive managing director of The Besen Group, claims that the potential megamansion will be “the most unique and spectacular piece of real estate in the heart of Greenwich Village.”

“It’s ideal for a billionaire or a celebrity who doesn’t want to be in a high-rise condo, instead, wants the feel of a home with privacy, backyard and amenities like a home gym, media room, and indoor swimming pool,” he added.

Indeed, the buyer who’d grab the townhouses, would get the whole football field in their backyard.

It’s not as if properties of such sizes were unheard of in the Greenwich Village area. The so-called “Frankenmansions” have become a trend a while ago when Sarah Jessica Parker and the likes started combining multiple properties into outsized homes.
