Less than two months ago, LLNYC wrote an article with the headline: “Will the ninth time be the charm for this $25M UES townhouse?”
The answer, we now realize, was, no. The townhouse at 163 East 64th Street has just hit the market for the 10th time since 2008, when owner — commercial broker Kenneth Laub — first put it on the market for $35 million.
Since then, the listing has been a veritable who’s who of New York City real estate: First Laub listed the place himself, followed by Brown Harris Stevens, Halstead Property, Town Residential, Corcoran, Douglas Elliman, Compass, Douglas Elliman again, and Charles Rutenberg. Now, it’s back in the hands of Douglas Elliman, this time with brokers George Vanderploeg, Steffen Kral and Charles van Der Ploeg.
The five-bedroom home is asking $25 million (less than its initial $35 million price tag, but a little more than the $23.9 million it was asking in 2016). It comes with eight fireplaces, a wood-panelled elevator, a garden roof terrace, a library, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, and a whole lot of murals.
