Which of These Upper West Side Townhouses Would You Buy?

New, 8 comments

Imagine you have around $9 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two townhouses. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 341 West 84th Street/ 112 West 87th Street
Price: $8,795,000 $6,995,000
Stories: 4 4
Beds, Baths: 7, 5 4, 4.5

↑ The larger and pricier of the the two, the townhouse at 341 West 84th Street consists of an owner's quadruplex and a ground-floor duplex, both of which would be delivered vacant. It was built by George F. Pelham around the turn of the 20th century and includes a private garden and a terrace overlooking the garden.

↑ The house at 112 West 87th Street has an even bigger garden, and a terrace, as well as a host of original details. The ground floor, however, is occupied by a dentists' office, which could be kept as an income-producing rental or renovated into the rest of the house.
