It might seem like a discount — still, $12.5 million is a lot to live in that very strange home.

Given the fact that he’s fled New York and headed back to his Paris palazzo, this probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise: the TriBeCa townhouse Dominique Strauss-Kahn was staying in is back on the market. We’ve been inside — if money is no object and you’re in the market for some downtown NYC digs, it’s a pretty nice pad. Except those glitter paintings in the basement. You might want to replace those.

…Just kidding, unless the U.S. Postal Service knows something we don’t. The New York Times reports that, thanks to a mail mix up, a package meant for the infamous Dominique Strauss-Kahn made its way to 153 Franklin Street — in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Oh dear.
Strauss-Kahn is currently residing in a cushy townhouse at 153 Franklin Street in TriBeCa, Manhattan. The reasons for the switch are unclear (how often does this occur, really?), but the story of what happened to the package post-delivery is pretty entertaining. Apparently the address in Brooklyn is home to a “boutique wine shop,” Dandelion Wine, and it sat for several days before the owner realized who this alleged “Dominique Strauss-Kahn” character was.

We have been inside the Tribeca townhouse Dominique Strauss-Kahn is currently living in…and we’re going to tell you about it.
When we read that Dominique Strauss-Kahn had been moved from Wall Street to some new digs at 153 Franklin Street, we thought to ourselves, hold up, we’ve totally been there. And, wouldn’t you know it, Mogulite threw its launch party just last week at that very location, a townhouse that’s on the market for around $14 million. Or, in DSK’s case, something like 50 grand a month.
So sure, The Post will tell you that the spot is a “three-story, 6,800-square-foot townhouse — just steps from the Robert De Niro-owned sushi hot spot Nobu” and NBC will have you know, “The four-bedroom, four-and-1/2-bath townhouse sprawls more than 6,800 square feet and boasts a terrace, home theater, gym, fireplace, steam shower, heated limestone floors, a retractable skylight and a waterfall shower. The master suite encompasses the entire third floor and has a wet bar, walk-in closets and a limestone bath, among other amenities.”
All true. But this place was also tailor-made for someone under house arrest. (See more images after the jump)
