It’s been a while since this Upper West Side brownstone, owned by Miramax Films co-founder Bob Weinstein, has hit the market but after eight years, the magnificent five-story home at 39 West 70th Street has returned to the market with a $19 million price tag. It’s a significant asking price, but not entirely outrageous for what this glorious space offers.

Spanning 6,600 square feet, this seven floor home features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half bathrooms, and plenty of period details. The parlor floor boasts a huge fireplace, one of five (!), wood-framed doors, molding, and wooded wainscoting. The kitchen has been remodeled with new cabinets and appliances but its original character lives on through the highly detailed ceiling and oversized seated window.

There are endless design elements throughout the space, including a huge dressing room, three distinct outdoor spaces, several skylights, and an elevator to make transportation throughout the many floors seamless. But the most unexpected and gawk-worthy feature is undoubtedly the home gym with its own half-basketball court clad in wooden walls. Suddenly, $19 million doesn’t seem so bad.
