After failing to sell at $15.5M as an epic, ten-bedroom, 8,440-square-foot combination known as #9ABC, this combination of the Apthorp's A- and B-lines is being sold alone for $9.98M. Measuring 5,340-square-feet, the resulting six-bedroom combo is certainly impressive in its broad strokes, with the high ceilings and historic touches the building is known for. In the details, however, there are several areas in need of work. One of the halls, originally part of the building's public spaces, has old wiring running along the ceiling moldings; the kitchen, with its white appliances and tiled floors, is unbecoming of such a grand apartment; and the trim painting is worn on the baseboards. Not what one might have expected from a high-end renovation. Will the space and provenance of this combination be enough to overcome the shortcomings and the building's rocky history? Maybe the floorplan porn will be enough to push it over the edge.
