The Skinny: The 2013 Kips Bay Decorator Show House, where 19 prominent designers have worked their magic on an Upper East Side townhouse, is open until June 4th, but the owners of the house have wasted little time in bringing it to market. Purchased in 2003 for $6.58M, the 13-room townhouse was listed yesterday for $16M. That's a hefty price, especially considering the house is located between Lexington and Third Avenues, but it pales in comparison to the sale price of the 2009 Show House, which sold to a Qatari sheik for $47M. This renovated five-story home boasts a spacious chef's kitchen, a double-height sun room, a full-floor master suite, and a library with terrace, all accessed by elevator. Despite the professional input, the interiors might be a bit too wild for most buyers, but nothing insurmountable for those who can afford a $16M townhouse.
