The red-and-white exterior of this five-bedroom Upper West Side townhouse may be from the 19th century, but the interiors are anything but vintage. Its current owners spent two years gut-renovating the place, adding in high-end appliances, fancy finishes, and other modern conveniences. The fruits of that revamp also lead to a huge price jump: The owners bought the place in 2010 for $3.8 million, and are now asking a staggering $10.225 million for the home.
Granted, there are a lot of lovely touches to the space: A cantilevered staircase connects its five floors, and there are three separate outdoor spaces (including a large private garden), along with a balcony just off the parlor floor. The owners also clearly have, um, colorful tastes, as this hot-pink walk-in closet makes clear:
Other features include a huge chef's kitchen with high-end appliances; a basement playroom with a small jungle gym and basketball hoops (fun!); a Sonos sound system "with in-ceiling speakers in all major rooms"; and a "wet room" in the master bedroom that's fit for two. "Every inch of this incredible home has been curated with luxury and comfort in mind," says the brokerbabble—and hey, if we had $10.225 million to spare, we'd take it.
