This week superstar violinist Itzhak Perlman and his wife, Toby, listed their Manhattan home for sale, for $17.5 million.
It's a pretty hefty price tag, but it might not be much higher than the one on his 1714 "Soil" Stradivarius, were Perlman to sell his violin!
The townhouse, built in 1901, is located a half-block from Central Park and a half-dozen blocks from Lincoln Center, at 21 West 70th St. on the Upper West Side. Click here for the listing, which will give you a peek inside.
The six-floor, 8,000-square-foot townhouse has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, four powder rooms, a large kitchen, a private roof deck, terrace, and garden. It also has an indoor swimming pool and sauna, as well as an elevator to all floors but the basement and top floor.
Perlman, 76, is a soloist and conductor, who also teaches the Juilliard School, having studied there himself with Dorothy DeLay and Ivan Galaman. He has won numerous honors and awards, including 15 Grammys, four Emmys, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He also teaches at the Perlman Music Program, a summer music program which was founded by Toby Perlman in 1994 on Shelter Island.
