Historic Soho Townhouse Plagued by Sickly Green Carpets

New, 16 comments

From the outside, this 1829 Federal-style townhouse at 9 Vandam Street looks like a lovely historic home. Then you step inside this "faded beauty," and you're sucked into a world of sickly pea-green carpets, mirrored walls, and hideous floral prints covering the couches, tables, and curtains. And that's just one room. This is the first time the 2,800-square-foot house is available since 1962, and the listing flat out tells you to bring your architect and interior designer, so any potential buyers must consider renovation costs on top of the $5 million asking price. Is it worth the investment? It does come with a large private backyard...
