Hopefully the fifth time at market is a charm for this 6,000-square-foot Renaissance Revival-style townhouse on West End Avenue, which has been thisclose to closing four times in seven years yet has always failed to seal the deal. Plagued homeowner Tracy Aron, who produced Broadway's Spring Awakening, has been duped out of closing on the arranged sales by unresponsive prospective buyers and their last minute changes of plans, "I thought it was because I wasn't ready to part with her," Aron told the Daily News, "But now I realize it was the 627 that wouldn't let go of me. I do believe she is now ready for that owner who will love her as much as we all have." Aron's spooky personification of her home aside, the place is pretty nice. The townhouse comes with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and as before, is asking $6.995 million.
