NYC Pad Offers a Mix of Vegas and Versailles For $13.8M

Packed with period-confused furniture, suffocated by clashing wallpaper, and as Curbed NY puts it, fit for Louis XVI "if he lived in Vegas's Paris," this NYC townhouse comes "as is," with its plentiful heaps of treasure thrown in with the $13.8M asking price. At 7,000 square feet, the listing—which is split into a two-family house with a garden-level rental—should feel expansive, but instead feels junk shop-cluttered in what the brokerbabble describes as "Schumacher brocade wall coverings, original wood shutters, crystal doorknobs" and a completely unnecessary "sky-like hand-painted ceiling mural" in the parlor. Even the eight fireplaces—every last one of them!—seem to be buried under all the lavish, gold-leafed decor. Take a dizzying look around, and keep an eye out for the green marble bathroom, tacky crown jewel in an already very, uh, sparkly apartment.
