For almost 20 years, women (and men) have been strutting their stuff in their Jimmy Choo shoes. Company co-founder, Tamara Mellon, may be in need of a new home to house her shoes, as she’s ready to sell her Upper East Side pad.
Going for a whopping $27 million, the penthouse apartment belonging to the former Vogue accessories editor, in what is known as the “Carhart Mansion,” is found in Manhattan’s Carhegie Hill neighborhood. Along with five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, the two-level, 7,140-square-foot––with an additional 5,290 square feet of outside space––home has a keyed elevator, a chef’s kitchen, an elegant dining room, a spacious living room, a maid’s quarter, and a large foyer. The master bedroom suite with a spectacular walk-in closet, as well as the high ceilings, French doors, a terrace, a wood-burning fireplace, and an enclosed solarium, help to offer guests a comfortable living and elegant entertaining experience.
Horace Trumbauer, an architect famous for designing homes for the wealthy, hotels, and also much of Duke University’s campus, was responsible for the mansion’s design. Constructed in 1913, the Carhart Mansion was listed as a New York City landmark in 1974, and converted into four ultra-luxe residences in 2005. Mellon’s duplex penthouse is presented by Douglas Elliman’s Pascual Ortiz and Keith Copley of The Copley Team.
