The famous film maker and twice Oscar nominee Spike Lee has recently put his colonial/Renaissance style property located in the East Side of Manhattan on the market for an incredible sum of 32 million dollars, just under 24 million euro.
The three storey structure was originally designed in 1916 by the famous American architect Frederick Sterner.
Spike Lee purchased the property in 1998, paying a little over 16.5 million dollars, (at a current conversion rate of around 12 million euro), a scandalous sum considering the current asking price.
The detailed work that the film director must have carried out over the course of the years has yet to be revealed, however, given the raise in the asking price the work is sure to have been extensive and consistent.
Before being purchased by the famous director the property consisted of twenty-six finely furnished bedrooms , seven bathrooms, spacious living rooms with exquisite marble flooring, enhanced by doors embellished with costly golden monograms.
The luxury property covers almost 2,500 square meters, which wraps around an internal courtyard, home to a magnificent fountain as its centrepiece.
