A townhouse formerly owned by a testifying forensic pathologist in the O.J. Simpson trial has scudded onto the market, following a developer-led two-year gut renovation. The 35-foot-wide, five-story townhouse at 142 East End Avenue is asking $8.5 million. The 4,200-square-foot home comes complete with four outdoor terraces, a wood-burning fire place, an automated lighting system, and electric blinds to block out all of the light sparkling off the East River. Built in 1899, the home in Yorkville's landmarked Henderson Place Historic District includes five bedrooms with a full-floor master suite and four marble-clad bathrooms. The tallest home on the block has unobstructed views of Carl Shurz Park, Gracie Mansion, and the East River.
