The House that Bunny Built
10 . 01 . 13
I walk down East 70th Street almost everyday which takes me past a very large townhouse with an imposing wall to keep out the prying eyes of the Upper East Side. Thanks to Curbed, I now realize it belongs to Bunny Mellon and is on the market for a cool $46 Million via Sotheby’s International Realty. At that price, there will be a small contingent of buyers. I really hope the new owners understand the history and significance of the beautiful courtyard and interiors and don’t gut it into some modern white box. I also wish real estate sites didn’t shoot everything with a wide lens. It distorts the image but I think the photos still give you an idea of the beauty behind the wall. Le sigh.
