A Hell’s Kitchen townhouse with colorful interiors is on the market for $7.5 million.

The townhouse at 438 West 44th Street is divided into a four-story upper owner’s unit and an income-producing triplex rental below. The three-bedroom, three and a half bathroom rental was most recently listed for $9,000/month, which would cover about one-third of the monthly mortgage payment if a buyer put 20 percent down.

Money talk aside—most New York real estate is aspirational, right?—the owner’s unit is lovely. The fifth floor that contains that unit’s kitchen and living area was added to the townhouse in the early 2000s. The kitchen is striking and bright, with a classic black and white check floor and large windows that show off panoramic views of Hell’s Kitchen.

The floor’s joint living and dining room is also quite airy owing to two sets of French doors that let out onto a south-facing balcony. Because the fifth floor rises above the neighboring townhouse, it has the rare amenity of four exposures. The small penthouse solarium that sits atop the fifth floor leads to a rooftop terrace with a pergola and grill.

The townhouse’s third and fourth floors hold the owner’s unit’s four bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a study. The spacious master bedroom overlooks the rear garden, and has a long ensuite with a separate tub and stall shower.

The income-producing triplex has a recently remodeled parlor-level kitchen at the front of the house and a living-dining room with a balcony that overlooks the rear yard. Three bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, are spread over the property’s two bottom floors.

Chris Kann with partners Robby Browne and Jennifer Ireland Kubis of the Corcoran Group have the listing.
