Inside a $ 28 million New York City townhouse with an indoor basketball court – Robb Report
Living in Manhattan has its perks, but square footage isn’t always one of them. You’ll likely splurge on a large Hamptons vacation home if you want a little extra space, as even the most generous homes in New York City can feel a little claustrophobic at times. That’s not the case for a new listing on the Upper West Side, which has enough room for its own basement basketball court.
At $ 27.5 million, the townhouse is the most expensive deal on the market in Tony’s neighborhood. According to New York Post, David and Dana Luttway bought the place in 2015 and have since worked hard to coordinate a total gut renovation of the place. The first is an investment banker, the second is a real estate developer and daughter of former US MP Nita Lowey. This Upper West Side project marks one of their most ambitious flips to date.
The house measures 11,300 square feet in total, with an additional 2,600 square feet of outdoor space that includes the rooftop terrace (which has its own kitchen and living areas), terraces outside the bedrooms, and a loggia. on the ground floor. There are six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and it is a seven story house. (Don’t worry, the Luttways have installed an elevator to make getting around easier.)
One of the house’s most distinctive features is its bay window, which overlooks the street and is made of copper. Go up the stairs to the second floor and you will find that the entire level belongs to the master suite, which includes double bathrooms, double walk-in closets and a home office space.
But the best amenities are downstairs: there’s a full game room, wine cellar, and gym. If all that isn’t enough for you, there’s also a double-height basketball court for shooting baskets with friends and family.
There’s a reason these are such hard-to-find assets in New York City. “The basketball court, recreation room, gym and wine cellar turned out to be the most expensive and longest 2,000 square feet I have ever built,” Dana Luttway told New York Post. Fortunately, all the hard work has been done for you here.
