There may be no shortage of limestone mansion just steps from Central Park, but less easy is finding somebody willing to give one up.
This six-story mansion at 15 East 76th Street has no shortage of either mahogany or class. And if you don’t want to take a few steps to Central Park and dodge the summer slew of marathons and tourists, it’s got its own garden and waterfall out back.
The building is currently divided into six apartments, but it’s poised to be converted into a single-family home, according to the Douglas Elliman listing. While $20.75 million divided by six might be a much less stunning number, it seems worth it for the rare privilege to call this your own. — Laura Kusisto
