There are tons of beautiful houses on the Upper West Side, especially those within the neighborhood’s historic district. This four-story townhouse that just hit the market asking $7.49 million, aside from having a stunning facade, has also preserved a lot of its interior old-world charm.

The 5,500-square-foot house has a large patio, a terrace, nine bedrooms, and six full bathrooms. There is an eat-in kitchen on the garden floor and a kitchenette on the parlor floor. The basement has storage space, a climate-controlled wine cellar, and a recreation room. Some of its elegant interior details include six fireplaces, several chandeliers, paneled ceilings, border-inlaid hardwood floors, and wood wainscoting. The kitchen has floral tiles.

The house is located at 131 West 69th Street within the Upper West Side Historic District, and was built by architects Thom and Wilson—who also designed the Harlem Courthouse—as part of a row of houses built between the 1880s and 1890s. Taxes are $5,919/month. Dexter Guerrieri of Vandenberg has the listing.
