The slightly mix-and-match interior design of the nineteenth-century townhouse at 221 West 13th Street gets a pass, because the house is actually divided into three apartments. That shouldn't be a holdup for a prospective single-family mansion buyer, because the listing promises the units can be re-combined before the property changes hands. The asking price of $10.5 million is a PriceUpper from the numbers the place reached for in 2009 and 2010?$6.95 million and $9.995 million?and from the $3,237,500 for which it actually last sold in 2004. So let's let the brokerbabble convince us to pay a little more this time, shall we?

The living room on the sun filled second floor electronically converts to a state of the art screening room with a remotely controlled screen, projector and surround sound. The thoughtful design includes a fully equipped bar with dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer. Two quiet bedrooms on this floor face north over the garden.
