Michael Feinstein’s Townhouse Goes on the Market for $17.9 Million

HGTV FrontDoor // Sep 19, 2013

Five-time Grammy nominee Michael Feinstein has put his Upper East Side home on the market, and what a home it is. Priced at $17.9 million, the 18-room, five-story house offers six bedrooms, seven baths, two kitchens, twin staircases, eight fireplaces, a gym and meditation terrace. The expansive backyard houses two pagodas, one used as a living room and the other as a dining room.

The home’s most notable feature, though, is its double-wide size. Feinstein and his husband, Terrence Flannery, created the 25-foot townhouse by merging two bow-front 1800s brownstones.According to the New York Times, they bought the first brownstone in 2004 for around $3 million then scooped up the neighboring brownstone in 2005 for $3.825 million. After a gut renovation, they removed walls on the garden and parlor floors and installed archways to connect the two homes. “The vision was to combine them into one grand house for entertaining,” Flannery told theTimes. (The couple regularly hosts guests like Liza Minnelli, Elaine Stritch, Stephen Sondheim and Tony Bennett.)

The listing is carried by Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon of CORE.
