Back in 2006, the current owner of this slim, five-story townhouse on the Upper West Side paid $4.6 million to acquire it, property records reveal. A little over a decade later, they’re now trying to selling it for more than three times that price at $17.95 million.
The current owner completely gut renovated the home after the purchase—the owner prior to that had had the house for over two decades.
At present, the stoop opens up onto the parlor floor which features the living and dining rooms and comes with 12-foot-tall ceilings. The townhouse has seven bedrooms, with the master bedroom presently located on the fifth floor. The top floor here features a large open space that is currently being used as an office, though that too could probably be converted to bedrooms should a new owner not have the need for such a large office space.
The brownstone also comes with tons of outdoor space including a very contemporary backyard that comes with a fire pit and a basketball hoop, and a terrace that overlooks the garden. There’s an additional terrace on the fifth floor, and a roof terrace as well.
The townhouse’s ground floor is currently setup as its own apartment with two bedrooms, a kitchen, a couple of bathrooms, and a living and dining area, and can continue to function as a space separate from the townhouse.
Just some of the finishes used in the house include Carrera slab marble, six-inch bleached white oak floors and teak. Located on West 76th Street, the townhouse is also just half a block away from Central Park and a short walk to the American Museum of Natural History.
