"The townhouse is perfect for Madonna. She''s trying to recreate London in New York City, and this is in the style of a London townhouse," the New York Post quoted a source as saying. One broker who asked not to be identified said that no residence in that area “has ever sold for 20 million dollars, let alone 30 million dollars-- or ever will again."
Sources said that the 'Material Girl" hitmaker will also find the house has bad vibes -- specifically from the Lexington Avenue subway. According to one visitor, people inside the 26-room mansion can hear and feel the trains coming through.
The mansion has a two-car garage, a 3,000-square- foot garden, nine fireplaces, an elevator, a wine cellar with a grotto, 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. However, it's not yet in move-in condition. Madonna has plans for extensive renovations, along with major security upgrades.
