The single-family mega-mansion is back in vogue. And if you can’t afford the Safra family’s $120 million three-townhouse combination, there is another mansion combination for a much more reasonable $22 million.

A matched pair of side-by-side houses at 159-161 East 82nd Street has hit the market as a package deal, according to 6sqft. Together, they offer 6,700 square feet and 38 feet of street frontage.

The deal offers a lot of options, too, such as the opportunity to add a cellar pool, plus a gym and sauna. Or, you could buy and rent out the other, use one for an office or an entertaining space. But building a huge mansion sounds more fun.
