A charming Queen Anne-style townhouse in Yorkville has hit the market with a not-so-attractive asking price of $3.995 million. While the exterior is lovely, the interiors are more subdued, yet, its location and size alone make it worth the ask.

Built in 1899, the home spans 2,725 square feet and across four levels, offering at least four bedrooms and five bathrooms. There are two smaller rooms that can function either as a den/home office space or as additional bedrooms.

The living room is simple in its design, not relying on much besides a classic wood-burning fireplace, high ceilings, and a large window to set the tone. In the dining room you’ll find white painted brick walls, a bit different for said area, along with a wall of square glass blocks.

The kitchen isn’t the most inspiring but there is everything you need to get the job done including stainless steel appliances and plenty of cabinets.

A spiral staircase leads you to the upper levels where the details found are much more enticing, with finishes like exposed brick walls, built-in shelves in some of the bedrooms, skylights, and bold columns.

A foyer leads onto the cozy planted backyard that isn’t super spacious but is large enough for some light outdoor entertaining. The home is also right across from Carl Shurz Park and Gracie Mansion.
