When we last checked in with this five-bedroom townhouse on the Upper East Side, it had just hit the market for $8.5 million after a two-year, developer-led gut renovation. Since then, it's gotten a few price chops—along with new, more design-conscious listing photos (see: Eames chair in a corner, tasteful neutral palette throughout, etc.)—and is now asking $7.5 million. The home is located in the Henderson Place Historic District, a tiny landmarked enclave that faces Carl Schurz Park—and thanks to this home's height, it has spectacular views of that green space, along with its neighbor Gracie Mansion. The 4,200-square-foot home comes complete with four outdoor terraces, a wood-burning fireplace, an automated lighting system, and electric blinds to block out all of the light sparkling off the East River.
