Madonna Has Too Much Money
People are losing their jobs. Families are concerned about health insurance. Tons of people cannot find work (*cough* like me). Madonna buys a $40 million dollar house and is having it completely renovated before she moves in.
You read that right. According to Curbed.com, Madonna recently purchased a $40 million dollar townhouse in New York City located at 152 East 81st Street. The sale price marks a neighborhood record as no residence east of Lexington Avenue has ever sold for over $20 million dollars. Madonna’s house more than doubles the old record sale price of a residence east of Lexington in New York City.
Snobs in the area, however, do grip that homes near Madonna’s complain about subway noise as the notoriously noisy trains run underneath homes in the area. Boo-hoo!
Besides “subway noise,” the home boasts a design “reminiscent of a London townhouse.” The townhouse features 26 rooms, a 3,000 square foot garden, and a double-car garage, not a common amenity in nearby homes. The home also features a library, a dining room, a library, 13 bedrooms, 9 fireplaces, a Georgian staircase, an elevator, and a rooftop garden.
