    Eh. I liked the other townhouses shown this week. $25 million is a sh!tload of money.

    What does anglo-italianate style mean. I have never heard of it.

    If that is “Anglo Italianate,” (as in the stately homes designed in the UK by Palladio and some of his apprentices who later went off on their own) then Arnold Schwarzenegger is the Queen of England. Talk about realtors exaggerating . . . 🙂

      I’ve said it before, but I honestly think all realtors should be forced to take a class called “Architectural Style Recognition 101”. 9 times out of 10 they’re really far off with the style they say any given house is built in, and it seems the automatic default for pretty much anything is the generic “Colonial” label.

        AGREED Ben, and HOW! The Architect and Interior Designer wanna’-be that I am always has, is and will be galled at (JUST like most people in general) Realtors who wouldn’t know a true Pennsylavanian Dutch farmhouse from a Mongolian YURT for example if they both smacked ’em RIGHT in the face.

        My eternal saying that I coined “The vast majority of people in general don’t even have any taste in their MOUTHS, much less between their ears” applies perfectly in this case, too. Waaay too many people will neverrrrr understand the power of the words that they speak too make them look like the most pathetic Imbeciles or genuine Geniuses.

        Ben,

        I can understand a little embellishment – these guys are trying to sell a valuable product in difficult times – but this kind of exaggeration is funny at best, and deceptive at worst. Agree completely with you on the education bit. It would, in fact, help real estate salespersons, agents and realtors with their own careers if they knew how to identify basic architectural styles.

    No comment on price, I don’t have a clue about what’s reasonable in NYC

    The home itself is a major disappointment. It’s really a shame to see a big, majestic townhome from the 1800s that’s had any and all character/history remodeled right out of it. I want more than a couple of historic fireplaces as visual reminders of where the place came from. This is a real missed opportunity.

    Very nice house in an excellent location. This house was converted into a single family after being divided into separate units for years. It’s a great opportunity, slightly overpriced. I’d put it more at the $20 mil mark. Properties like this one are not usually available in move I condition.

    I apparently am in the minority here, but I really like this. The interior is a blank slate but has tons of possibility. The layout is quite good, and I can’t find anything I’d change. I don’t love the idea of going through the closet/dressing room to get to the bathroom, but it’s a fair trade-off to have windows in the bathroom. Even the maid’s room is decent sized and has a window. The neighborhood is great; it’s walking distance to Union Square, Washington Square (NYU), and the Village. I would prefer this area over the UES in a heartbeat. I think the price is pretty much right on for a remodeled townhouse this size in this area. I would absolutely take this place.

      I agree with you. This looks like an awesome place. I like the foyer, the dark floors. They could saved a bit more details but I thinks it’s actually fine; museum-like details are great, but it’s just to much for me in a home.
      I would have made the floorplans different though; I know it’s hard to make good floorplans for a house with multiple floors like this, but some things here are not very clever. My ideas for that?:

      Basement: Less bathroom/toilets, combine the mudroom with the laundry, less rooms but more open, continue the grand stairs to the basement.

      First floor: library to parlor floor, dining room & living room to 1st floor, (and probably impossible but I would prefer the a bit longer and having the garden the full width of the house.)

      Parlor floor: (as said) Living room & dining room to 1st floor and put the library here.

      Third floor: instead of two bathrooms and two WIC’s, make it one (bigger) bathroom and one WIC. This would probably make the master bedroom bigger too. And why a sitting room there, and why a door from the sitting room to that bathroom?

      Fourth floor: about right, but I would have made one bathroom instead of three. But having your own bathroom is mandatory in a house this place/price I guess…

      And instead of having all different sizes of terraces, put equal sized balcony’s on the back. Looks so much simples and make a far more composed picture.

      I would love to call this mine though, but I would have loved to be designed just a little bit different/better…
      Would love to make a better floorplan for this.

      Funny what they call a garden; our vegetable garden is bigger then that.
      But that’s New York I guess…

      The best NY Townhouse I’ve ever seen is the one in the film ‘Panic Room’.
      I loved that house.
