With a stately elm tree and vine-covered walls, the garden of this Carnegie Hill townhouse, which just hit the market for $7.45 million, is easily the highlight of the home. The landscaped garden, complete with a gas grill, leads into the "rustic-chic" kitchen, where the brokerbabble says you'll find "terracotta floors, wood-burning fireplace, wood countertops, ample custom cabinetry, and a farmhouse sink," but oddly, it's not picture. The house, located at 121 East 91st Street, also features two additional terraces, a couple cozy window seats, and a two-level master suite, as well as a finished basement with a home gym. The home last sold in 2003 for $4.4 million, and the listing says that the house has been upgraded with central heat and air, but there are still a few radiators and at least one (gasp!) through-wall air-conditioner, so the house may be in need of some TLC.
