Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion is for sale

I’m surprised they listed it publicly. Is it true it’s the largest mansion in the UES? It’s an architectural treasure. I don’t think this place will ever be clean or cleansed to be fit to be lived in.

3 pics is hardly going to cut it.

I tried to find more pics @R1 I would to see more because of the history of the house(pre Epstein)

Tasteless enemies, what do we think of Rapo McSleaze’s chamber of horrors?

Would the jism ever be completely purged from the floors and wainscoting?

It should be turned into a treatment center for sexual abuse victims.

You "don't think that the place will ever be clean or cleansed to live in." How does anybody know what went on in a place they lived before they lived there unless they are the original tenant? Hire an exorcist or shaman or whatever your belief system holds and don't worry about it.

That comment was directed to the real estate agent/website R2 - not you at all. To the listing agent - 3 pics for a house of that value is simply not enough and is ridiculous.

Yes I would be interested to see more of the house too.

88 MILLION DOLLARS. Virgin Pussy Is A Gold Mine. Some men paid dearly just to pop a cherry.

by Anonymousreply 707/30/2020

R7, I'm pretty sure a lot of that money also came from blackmail.

by Anonymousreply 807/30/2020

He apparently paid Wexner one dollar for it. No one is quite certain of how he came to own it. Also, last July it was $77 million.

That listing is a mess - only 3 pics as already noted, and described as "Studio,1 Bath, 28,000 sq ft, 6 stories"

Looks nice from what little I can see especially the one interior shot, but a bit out of budget for me, never mind the previous owner. If I could rark up the cash from the floor of my car and whatevers gone down the back of the sofa I'd snap it up

His Palm Beach house was listed at the same time.

Formally known as "The 1933 Herbert Straus Mansion -- No. 9 East 71st Street"

Herbert Straus was the son of Isidor and Ida Straus of the R. H. Macy & Co. department store fame. Sadly his parents both perished on the Titanic, Mrs. Straus is remembered particuarly because she wouldn't get into lifeboat, but went to her husband and said "where you go, I go", or words to that affect. The couple were last seen on deck of Titanic holding hands......

Unlike mansions of Vanderbilt family and others that lined Fifth or Madison avenue, homes on UES side streets tended to be left alone, that is not torn down and lots redeveloped into multifamily. This did happen on some of the major cross streets like East 72nd or East 79th, and or on corner lots, but overall plenty remains.

My husband went to school there, back in the day.

I don't think he brought chicks back to the NY mansion. He was raping them in Florida.

by Anonymousreply 1407/31/2020

If I had that kind of money I'd offer half the price instantly and wait. Whoever buys it will probably get it for a steal due to its history. Very hard for people to look past that which I think is just stupid. Come on, he was a pedophile, not a demon. There are no ghosts and evil spirits lurking about. How many opportunities will you have to get your hands on such a property in that location?

by Anonymousreply 1507/31/2020

What will it cost to get all the sticky out? ew

Aren't Real Estate agents required to disclose any facts that might affect the value of the property? Not mentioning the fact that the prior owner was Epstein seems shady.

by Anonymousreply 1907/31/2020

R19, anyone wealthy enough to plunk down for that property will be aware of that fact. And the brokers and lawyers involved in the sale would disclose it. Nobody wants to be sued over it at a later date.

It’s been on the news, it’s not some closely-guarded secret, anyway.

[quote] Is it true it’s the largest mansion in the UES?

No, there are many that are larger.

by Anonymousreply 2107/31/2020

His house reminds me of the one Sydney Pollack's character lived in in Eyes Wide Shut. I do believe that Kubrick fashioned that character after Epstein. That whole movie is about Epstein and his secret society, which Kubrick certainly knew about.

Top five largest mansions in Manhattan, NY; none of them are currently used as a private residence.

By most accounts largest detached house (or mansion) used as a private residence is 351 Riverside Drive on UWS, aka "Schinasi House ".

R23, what was the point in stating that and then posting a picture of Epstein without context? We know what that fucker looks like.

by Anonymousreply 2607/31/2020

I bet it is full of hidden cameras, recording devices, secret rooms, secret tunnels.

by Anonymousreply 2707/31/2020

You'd have to have been living under a rock this past year or so not to know former owner of this mansion.

Besides anyone playing at this level of real estate knows or should know all about history of any property they are considering. If they don't that is what you pay staff and others to find out.

If the blogger for website Daytonian in Manhattan can research history of NYC properties both still standing and long gone (including any dirt), it shouldn't be that difficult for anyone else.

[quote] Come on, he was a pedophile

No he was not. He was a pederast. There are no reports of him molesting pre-pubescent girls.

by Anonymousreply 3107/31/2020

No, he was not a pederast.

Epstein was an ephebophile.

by Anonymousreply 3207/31/2020

Do we know who Epstein's heirs are?

Also, will they hose down the rape room before the new buyer moves in?

by Anonymousreply 3307/31/2020

r15, You seem to be forgetting that there isn't a single Middle Eastern potentate or Chinese billionaire that would hesitate for a nanosecond over the history of this house. They might try to get a knockdown price simply because they think they can, but there will be a market for this house, history notwithstanding.

Among the M.E. billionaires, what Epstein did is known as 'daily life with the underage harem', and the Chinese use child slave labour all the time and I'm sure won't blink an eye.

"Come on, he was a pedophile, not a demon. There are no ghosts and evil spirits lurking about."

I wouldn't buy the place if I thought $88 mil was pocket change and wanted to live in NYC for some reason, but not because I'm afraid of ghosts or boogeymen. No, I'd be afraid of real-world security risks.

The place won't just attract gawkers, it'd attract freelance reporters and schizophrenics and "investigators" who believe in Qanon theories, and who think they can get the goods on Bill Clinton or Donald Trump if they can just have a snoop around your basement. Worse, some former associate of Epstein might think that the film of that last party at Epstein's island might be hidden somewhere in your lovely new house, and he'd send over some people who'd know exactly how to deal with your security system.

by Anonymousreply 3607/31/2020

That $88 million is just an opening number; highly doubt they will get anything near; especially in current market as things are with covid-19.

With international travel on lock-down even if a foreign person wanted to buy the place he or she would have to settle for a virtual showing as they cannot get to NYC and see in person.

It will take a long time for this property to live down Jeffrey Epstein's name. Who wants the bother and drama of having to deal with media and other notoriety? Someone buys this place and at every drinks party, event, or whatever soon as address is mentioned first come the side eye glances, then all sorts of prurient remarks or questions.

Significant if all proceeds from sale of all Jeffrey Epstein's properties are going into victims compensation fund. That is something else any potential buyer must be aware of and digest.

Any future buyer will hide behind 15 separate corporate entities and it will take years to work out who they are.

If I had 88M, I'd be in a nice house surrounded by nature. I have no desire to live like that in NY

by Anonymousreply 4107/31/2020

R29 I see from the pics the FBI damaged the front door getting in, but I can fix that sort of thing, I'm pretty handy. I like the interior, but that stuffed tiger would have to go, along with the painting featured. Still comes down to money, I've scratched around down the back of the couch and didnt find $88 million, but I still need to clean out the floor of my wagon, you never know

by Anonymousreply 4208/01/2020

They're going to have a job selling off that Epstein mansion.

Market was swinging away from these huge piles even before convid-19 panic; and there aren't any signs things are going to change soon.

I wonder if I’m the only person who looks at a nice house (or person) and just accepts it as it is. It’s funny, but high maintenance people really hate that.
