"We are now stepping into West Village territory prices to live in Cobble Hill," a commenter wrote about yesterday's $8 million townhouse. The West Village is staying one step ahead, though, as that's where this townhouse is located and it's asking $9 million. The four-story, 21-foot-wide house at 36 Commerce Street, right next door to the historic Cherry Lane Theatre, features a whole bunch of original details including seven wood-burning fireplaces, which is just a crazy number of fireplaces. The sellers bought the place in 2007 for a mere $1.665 million after it was listed for $5 million. There's got to be more to that story.
