Formerly Rat-Infested House Gets Lovely Reno, Wants $20M

New, 9 comments

2012 was a hard year for the now-handsome townhouse on West 76th Street between Central Park West and Columbus. In 2010, a discount sporting goods mogul who later sold his Academy Sports & Outdoors empire, David Gochman, purchased the house along with his wife Becky for $7.5 million.

But then the rats came, and neighbors got mad. But that's all in the past, given that wonderful architect Steven Harris came onboard, executed a three-year renovation, and pulled a lovely, modern Upper West Side townhouse from a place that used to look, well, like this.

The 6,300-square-foot home, which has five outdoor spaces, five bedrooms, three wine refrigerators, an elevator, and a solarium with a contemporary fire pit, is now on the market asking a whopping $20 million. The rodents are presumably gone.
