Every now and again there’s a property in The Bronx that catches the eye with its asking price and almost always, that home is in Fieldston.
And once again that’s exactly where the most expensive home on the market in The Bronx is located.
Located at 5020 Grosvenor Avenue, the 10,000 square foot Fieldston mansion, which was constructed in 2012, was listed 10 days ago for a whopping $7 million and features 7 bedrooms with 7 and a half baths, two fire places, a swimming pool all set on almost three-quarters of an acre of land, something that is unheard of in New York City except a handful of neighborhoods like Fieldston.
The mansion is also located at the 16 acre Villanova Heights, a fifteen home development that welcomed the first two mansions in 2009.
While it is currently the most expensive home on the market in The Bronx at $7 million, it is not, by far, the most expensive ever in the borough.
That honor goes to nearby 360 West 253rd, a massive 15,000 square foot home on 2.3 acres that was built for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Yes, you read that correctly. That property was listed for $15 million back in 2009 and by 2015 it was dropped to $10 million and finally sold in 2017 for just $6.25 million—a mere fraction of the original asking price.
At any rate, while 5020 Grosvenor may not have an interesting origin story like the Jesus mansion, it sure is a beautiful home that will make the family that can afford it happy.
