Strauss-Kahn's New York bolt-hole for sale
For sale: New York house with great privacy recently given up after a short rental by Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Price: $13.99 million.
The Manhattan townhouse used by the former International Monetary Fund chief during his house arrest on sex assault charges has been free since charges were dropped last month. He left for his native France earlier this month.
The listing appeared on www.townrealestate.com.
It boasts a home movie theater, gym, spa, four bedrooms and roof deck access, all luxuries apparently valued by Strauss-Kahn and his millionaire wife Anne Sinclair who rented the property for an estimated $50,000 a month.
They also found that the house, at 153 Franklin Street, made a good refuge from a huge media presence camped outside.
