)-- This weeks hot home news include the Woolworth Mansion, Detroit Deals and Lenny Kravitz.
Would you like to live in a historic New York City mansion – the most expensive single-family home in the city? This week's Top 10 homes spotlight at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com includes a look at the Woolworth Mansion that is currently for sale at $90 million. Frank Winfield Woolworth became a retail giant in the late 1800s by pioneering the five and dime store concept. He responded to his new wealth in the same manner as others in his generation - by building unforgettable mansions. The 35-foot-wide limestone mansion has 18,000 square feet in seven stories, 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Other features include a paneled library, a dining room that can seat 50 people, a suite of offices and a gym. It is one of three mansions he built for his three daughters. If $90 million is a bit steep, the mansion is also available for rent at $150,000 per month.
