One of the most historic townhouses in New York has just returned to the market with a discounted price tag. The 18th-century Federal-style Tribeca townhouse has been relisted for $6.995 million, first reported by Curbed.
According to the designation report filed with the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, the building was originally built by the City Hall designer John McComb in 1819.
The commission designated the home a landmark in 1969, when it became is one of the first few historical designations after the commission was founded in 1965, the designation report shows.
While on the outside it looks like a historic townhouse, it’s all about modern luxury on the inside. The 3,700-square-foot home was thoroughly upgraded by its current owner, Sarah Bartlett, after she bought the place for $3.6 million in 2006.
According to the listing, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouse was modernized by Dean/Wolf Architects. The kitchen and bedrooms were renovated, and a sculptural stainless steel staircase along with a large skylight were added.
Ms.Bartlett told the Wall Street Journal last year that she was selling her home because her children have grown up and moved out, and the townhouse became too large for her alone. She planned to find a smaller place in the neighborhood.
The house was first listed last April for $8.75 million and then the price was reduced to $7.5 million, according to the former listings. It didn’t sell, and the listing was removed this March, only to return to the market on Wednesday.
The historic townhouse was re-listed by the Anderson-Ehrmann team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate. One of the listing agents, Bruce Ehrmann said the current $6.995 million asking price is “absolutely spot on and ready to sell.”
