  • Leather Walls, Mirrored Boudoir and a Fur Vault for $84.5M (29 photos)

    Madonna, here’s your second chance. The home of developer Keith Rubenstein and his wife, Inga, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side has just hit the market at $84.5 million, as first reported by the Wall Street Journal. They bought the century-old townhouse in 2007 for $35 million, reportedly beating out a much lower bid by Madonna. Renowned for their “over-the-top parties,” according to Architectural Digest, they even installed a ventilated smoking room for their European friends. The adjacent bathroom has mirrors cracked by bullets (edgy!) — reminiscent of the controversial party the real estate mogul threw in an abandoned warehouse last Halloween. (That party’s death-inflected theme, “Macabre Suite,” had “Bronx is burning” overtones and included a sculpture made of bullet-riddled cars. It publicized his business’s upcoming residential/retail complex in the South Bronx.) The home’s more unusual amenities also include red Hermes leather walls in the billiard room, a fur vault, a mirrored boudoir with reflective soaking tub, and a plunge pool next to a sauna. The couple told the Wall Street Journal and Architectural Digest that they spent years renovating the townhouse. Our slideshow includes photos from the current listing plus a few from the previous listing for before-and-after comparison, as well as pictures of a couple of sites that inspired some of its designs (a St. Petersburg palace, for instance, and the Oak Bar at the Plaza in New York).
