Extell Development is looking to shatter the record for the city’s priciest ever “white box” sale with a $65 million, 10,000-square-foot unfinished limestone townhouse on East 61st Street at Madison Avenue.

The pricey pad at 21 East 61st Street is completely raw, with no walls, paint or even a toilet, according to the New York Daily News. A grand spiral staircase will link the floors, however, and the property boasts 5,000 square feet of outdoor space. The buyer will also have access to amenities at the Carlton House cond-op next door, which include a 65-foot indoor pool, fitness center, game room and concierge.

“A buyer’s needs are always unique, so we decided to leave the building as a white box,” Elida Jacobsen Juston, director of sales for the home, told the Daily News. “This way, the buyer has the opportunity to decide and configure all the rooms the way he or she wants.”

Similarly stark, if less pricey offerings in recent years include a handful of Town Homes On Bethune Street in the West Village next to Superior Ink that the Related Companies left raw in 2007. Desgner Marc Jacobs later bought one of them for $10.5 million, asking for it to remain empty, then bringing in architect Andre Tchelistcheff to outfit the space according to his wishes.
