Developer Mark Pariti purchased the Federal-style townhouse at 144 East 30th Street in 2008 for $5.515 million?and promptly redid the entire thing. Why? Because, he tells the Post, his "vision was to bring a little brownstone Brooklyn...to the East Side," and the original townhouse facade just wasn't cutting it. The way Pariti defines brownstone Brooklyn: outdoor spaces for each of the five units, including a courtyard one floor below street level that looks, well, a little grim. Does each resident get one hour outside per day?
So far, the building's had a hard time finding buyers. It actually came on the market in December, but after there were no takers, Pariti chopped prices by 5 to 15 percent. They now range from $1.899 million to $4.695 million. In the gallery above, shots of the exterior, courtyard, and penthouse duplex.
