24 West 71st St - Upper West Side, New York
The Milbank Mansion at 24 West 71st Street has the finest museum-quality original detail we have ever seen. This magnificent one-of-a-kind property has 17 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 5+ bathrooms, 10 fireplaces, paneled 6-stop elevator and 8,820 interior square feet on 6 levels. Commissioned in 1888 by Elizabeth Milbank, philanthropist and widow of prominent businessman Jeremiah Milbank, the house was finished in 1890 by the renowned architectural firm of Lamb & Rich. This exquisite house must be seen to be appreciated. Another valuable benefit is the extremely low real estate taxes of $37,992 p.a., the lowest percentage of value of any house we have seen.
