The "classical and chic" townhouse at 7 East 67th Street has returned—and now, it’s gotten yet another price chop. After failing to find a buyer willing to drop the initial $49.5 million asking price—or the $38.8 million ask that soon followed—the 25-room mansion will try its luck for $36.5 million.

It appears that sales for the home, owned by hedge funder Charles Murphy, are no longer being handled by Corcoran. The listing now has new photos from Sotheby’s that still highlight many of the same features within this 11,550-square-foot space. (They do, however, fail to fully showcase the one detail that we fell in love with: the gorgeous spiral staircase topped with a huge skylight.)

Nevertheless, the Thom & Wilson-designed townhouse has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a double-height library, gallery spaces on the first and second floor, and an expansive roof deck with stunning views of Central Park. Let’s see if third time really is the charm.
