One of the most famous regions in New York, The Bronx, which is also said to be the birthplace of a thriving music category, Hip Hop, has now shocked the real estate markets as this region now hosts an 11,000 square foot mansion that is now listed as available on rent for $17,000 a month. This magnificent luxury mansion is located at 5020 Iselin Avenue and comes with a gargantuan 25,000 sq-ft lot that is said to be manicured twice a week by professional gardeners. This magnificent mansion features an astounding six bedrooms along with five bathrooms and this luxurious property is composed four floors that are designed in arts-and crafts style. The Bronx would have been the last place where such luxury rentals would have been expected as the region has for long been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
However, with the emergence of this fabulous mansion, it seems The Bronx has now finally been able to come out of its dark reputation and is all set to welcome the rich and the affluent to the neighborhood. Featuring hardwood floors all across the home as well as three wood burning places spread across the common rooms, this remarkable piece of luxury real estate is being represented by CitiHabitats, a New York based real estate brokerage firm. On the outside, this beautiful residence has been given a heated swimming pool with cabana as well as a three car garage. Considering the history of the region, this gorgeous mansion comes with security system and surveillance cameras and the basement has been designed in a fashion that the owners can use it as exercise room, a wine cellar, a game room and a storage area. This $17,000 a month mansion has been elegantly designed by the renowned architect firm, Robert A.M. Stern, that also has to its credits, university buildings, courthouses and the ultra-luxurious Ritz Carlton residences in Dallas, Texas.
According to Nathan Sheard (Listing Agent, CitiHabitats),
“I grew up in Long Island, New York and lived in Brooklyn, but it wasn’t until I started working in this neighborhood that I ever knew an enclave like Fieldston, even existed. This would work well for a Yankee or it would work well for a Knick since they train up by Pace University in Tarrytown and play at Maidson Square Garden. A lot of people are moving to the area, especially with the finance companies that are bringing people in from the U.K., Hong Kong, and Singapore. This is a place where they could settle in and not feel pressured to make a quick decision while they are adjusting to a life in the New York area and deciding whether to buy something.”
