The stunning Romanesque Revival townhouse at 139 West 87th Street has made its way back to the market and is now looking to unload for $7.25 million. When we last saw the home back in 2014, it was asking $8.75 million after offering itself up as a $24,000 a month rental. Not much has changed here and the home is as lovely now as it was then.

The 4,173-square-foot abode was built and designed by architect Charles Guilleaume and dates back to 1884. It houses six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and was owned by painter Rifka Milder when it was last listed.

Among the many details within this space are original moldings, carved doors, stained glass windows, restored wooden mantles, four fireplaces, and inlaid wood floors. There is a light-filled chef’s kitchen, complete with custom cabinetry and high-end appliances, as well as an open dining area. The parlor floor welcomes a library while on the upper level you’ll find a skylit full-floor artist’s loft/studio that can be converted into bedrooms.

There is a full basement with a laundry room, a terrace on the parlor floor, and a landscaped 37-foot garden.
