Keith Rubenstein’s palatial mansion on the Upper East Side is back on the market with a $5 million price chop, but it still lays claim to being the priciest listing in the neighborhood at $80 million.

The Somerset Partners founder and his wife Inga first listed the six-bedroom, 14,700-square-foot townhouse at 8 East 62nd Street in February 2016 for $84.5 million. The listing, originally held by the Modlin Group, was pulled in October.

The property, replete with a leather-lined billiards room, a lighted handbag display, a controlled vault for fur (!), and a spa room, reentered the market with Douglas Elliman brokers Richard Steinberg, Matthew Slosar, Alexander Mignogna and Lauren Keegan.

“We’re reacting to the market,” Steinberg told Mansion Global. “It’s not a secret that very few houses sold last year for above $50 million.”

The Rubensteins bought the home for $35 million in 2007. In October, The Real Deal reported that a would-be squatter tried to break into the mansion.  [Mansion Global]Chava Gourarie
