You don’t have to be rich to live among the wealthy. One family in New York City is hiring a live-in “domestic couple” to oversee cooking, cleaning, childcare and few errands. The full-time job pays up to $150,000 a year, depending on the applicants’ level of experience, and offers perks like private living quarters within the home, and medical, dental, and vision insurance, plus an allowance for food and expenses. It’s not unusual for rich New York families to shell out millions a year to employ butlers, chefs, chauffeurs, housekeepers, and nannies. But a domestic couple tends directly to the “Mr.” and “Mrs.”. The prominent Upper East Side couple seeks an experienced, an organized and thorough domestic couple to oversee, manage, and maintain their 30,000 square-foot townhouse. This position is live-in, full-time, with five days on, two days off work schedule. Duties including washing, ironing, and garment closet organization. Preparing fresh and healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Driving the homeowners on occasion to and from appointments, all for $150 thousand a year, sound like something you could do?
