- A townhouse on New York City's Upper East Side is on the market for $88 million.
- The 20,000-square-foot mansion includes a panic room, a saltwater pool, and a Versailles-inspired dining room.
- The opulent home has been on and off the market since 2013, when it was initially listed for $114 million.
- The listing agent says "there is no other property like this available in New York."
An opulent mansion in New York City with a panic room and a Versailles-inspired dining room has been on and off the market for nearly six years. Originally asking $114 million, the townhouse at 12 E. 69th Street is now for sale for $88 million.
Listing agent Paula DelNunzio of Brown Harris Stevens said the mansion is the only 40-foot wide house with a 20,000-square-foot interior that has been on the market in totally renovated condition. Other similarly wide houses for sale in Manhattan have needed extensive renovations, she says.
"The scale of the interior rooms is beyond belief and without compare as there are four of the most remarkable rooms ever seen in a New York mansion," DelNunzio told Business Insider.
The dining room was inspired by Versailles, according to Curbed.
In 2017, a buyer was in contract to buy the home for $80 million, The Real Deal reported. But the deal fell through, so the house went up for rent for $175,000 a month before being re-listed for $88 million.
Here's what the $88 million house looks like inside.
