This iconic Manhattan art gallery house just hit the market for $ 34 million

The iconic Manhattan townhouse known as the “Waterfall Mansion” recently hit the market for $ 34 million. The house was originally built in 1899 and was the home of Leslie and DD Tillett, well-known textile designers who originally came from the eponymous fabric company (who designed patterns for the Kennedy White House!). During the two generations that the Tillett family owned the property, it served as both a workshop and a home.

In 2008, it was renovated into a gallery by architect Toshiko Mori and real estate developer Kate Shin. The house now has a private iron entrance and lift, as well as 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The indoor waterfall that gave the mansion its name is breathtaking 22 feet wide and 23 feet tall.

Additional home amenities include a 1000-bottle wine cellar in the basement, a roof garden and a spa lounge which includes a jacuzzi. Many design elements and materials are environmentally friendly and of natural origin. Some of the natural materials include maple flooring, limestone, and marble.

The property’s gallery space is easily accessed through the car house doors and has been used by brands like Fendi, Gucci, and Rolls Royce for events. To ensure that the house can withstand the art insulation, the walls of the house have been reinforced to support three times the weight of an average residential wall. The list for the luxury gallery, the house is owned by broker Howard Morrel. Take a virtual tour here.
