2007 was a very good year for Manhattan real estate, and in October '07 the limestone townhouse at 106 East 71st Street sold for $16.5 million, according to PropertyShark. Those days are but a distant memory, or so the buyer hopes: The house is back on the market for $28.8 million. A lot has changed: The 25-foot-wide, 10,000-square-foot building was renovated and combined from two apartments into a single-family home. It now sports six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two wet bars, a roof terrace, garden, elevator, circular marble staircase and a living room bigger than most studio apartments. The place looks like a stunner and the floorplan is practically a novella, but does a thorough renovation wipe out the '07 price?
Here's an old photo via PropertyShark, but we're sure the place looks like a million bucks now. Or 28.8 million bucks:
