Whereas it wouldn’t precisely be correct to say that New York is a metropolis of megamansions (not but, anyway), the outsized houses—usually thought-about something over 10,000 sq. ft—are popping up throughout Manhattan and in some parts of Brooklyn nowadays.
A great deal of these properties are being custom-built for his or her very rich house owners; take, for instance, the behemoth that Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is constructing out of three Upper East Side townhouses, which can measure 18,000 sq. ft when accomplished.
However megamansions don’t essentially have to be Frankenhomes pieced collectively out of a number of totally different townhouses; on the moneyed Higher East Aspect, for instance, there are many properties on the market that simply occur to be actually huge homes. Many of those date again to the flip of the 20th century, when New York’s wealthiest households constructed palatial estates within the blocks near Central Park. Others are barely newer, however no much less ostentatious in measurement—and asking worth.
