Updated Nov. 9, 11:13 a.m.: Five years after the stately townhouse at 12 East 63rd Street was sold for $20 million, it’s back on the block, asking more than triple the price.

The house hit the market asking $77 million, following a  major renovation of the facade and structure by Canadian architect Armand Dadoun. The interior was overhauled by world renowned designer Pierre Yves Rochon, whose previous work includes the George V Hotel in Paris, the Peninsula in Shanghai and the Four Seasons Hotel on Park Lane in London. The seven-level home Rochon’s first New York residential project.

The home features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a 20-foot swimming pool, spa and gym in the basement. The gym has a “cascading waterfall over back granit [sic] that is located in a three story greenfouse [sic] atrium all clad in lacquered wood.”

Greenfield Properties bought the building from Altosa in 2010 for just under $20 million and it doesn’t seem they have done much with the property since. In fact, the listing text is copied verbatim form the 2010 listing, according to Curbed.
