NYC mansion with basketball court costs $16.2 million

This townhouse has more amenities than New York City’s worth of blocks.

This sprawling, seven-story (including a converted basement) Manhattan mansion exudes glamor — but inside, the decadence is truly beyond.

Sprawling at 164 E. 70th St., the Upper East Side offers 7,400 square feet of not just sheer living space, but also the kind of comfort and entertainment most amenities seek for. These include a basketball court, six wood-burning fireplaces, a library, wet bar and gardens.

“Originally built in 1901, this 20 foot wide old world mansion has been fabulously restored and modernized,” listing broker Cathy Franklin of Corcoran told The Post. “The design is traditional yet modern – firmly in the 21st century – and reflects today’s lifestyle while respecting the beauty of the past.”

While the original plasterwork and decorative moldings have been retained throughout, there are also many contemporary additions.

The most drool-worthy feature: the basketball court.

“The team of BWAarchitects, PSA Studios and Kari McCabe worked together to create a true masterpiece,” continued Franklin. “The interior spaces have been opened front-to-back, allowing light to stream in through the incredible glass walls that overlook the south-facing patio and garden.

Highlights of the spacious layout include the grand drawing room on the drawing room level, the terrace overlooking the garden and the library suite on the third floor, the master suite on the fourth floor with a dressing area, a separate dressing room and a bathroom with one of the wood burning fireplaces and radiant heated floors and the basketball court on the top floor. The garden level, on the other hand, is “perfect staff quarters or guest suite,” and the fifth floor has two “oversized bedroom suites,” according to the statement the listing.

An elevator connects the levels.

“The home brings a bit of a downtown aesthetic to one of the finest townhouse blocks on the Upper East Side,” Franklin said, adding, “I’m pleased to report that we’re already seeing incredible buyer interest in this one-of-a-kind home.” .”
