It’s Free to Look: Malcolm Forbes’ Old Place

Sure, there are plenty of townhouses you can buy in the city provided you’ve got the cash, but few as steeped in history as this Brown Harris Stevens listing that both Malcom Forbes and Harold Macmillian called home and hosted parties with guestlists featuring Margaret Thatcher, the Reagans, David Niven, Richard Nixon, Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Volcker.

The property, built in 1847, sits on a 103-foot lot and features three guest bedrooms, two dining rooms, a drawing room, a library, a two-car garage, an elevator and a wine cellar. Keeping with the history motif, the wine cellar comes complete with the series of stag’s head stirrup cups Forbes had comissioned for the aformentioned honored guests. The five -story brick townhouse is perfect for the history buff with $15.2 million lying around.
