Homeowners are often warned that renovating their house or apartment doesn’t always equate to a significant increase in sales price. That doesn’t appear to be the case with the brownstone at 41 W. 74th (between Columbus & CPW). Purchased by a “South American industrialist” for $12.5 million in March 2011, the property has been converted [...]
Posted back in February that the UWS was seeing an “unprecedented” rise in townhouses priced over $10 million. You can add one more to that list, as 137 W. 74th (between Amsterdam & Columbus) recently sold for $14.15 million. That’s the highest price ever paid for an Upper West Side townhouse not located on Central [...]

This week’s “unattainable” apartment is a brownstone located at 12 West 83rd. Newly renovated and located just steps from Central Park on a tree-lined street, it features 5 BR, 4.5 BA, a terrace, private backyard, and massive storage space.
Last month MUW featured an absurdly awesome $16.4 million townhouse at 116 W. 71st as the UWS “Unattainable” Apartment Of The Week. Shortly after the post went up, I received an e-mail from Jason Haber, the CEO of Rubicon Property and the agent for the listing. He wrote that because of the LEED certification process [...]

This week’s unattainable apartment is an absolutely ridiculous townhouse located at 116 West 71st. With 6 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 10 wood burning fireplaces, a terrace, 2 balconies, a sauna, 500-bottle wine cellar, and a commercial grade elevator, this 8,200 sq ft townhouse might just be the nicest I’ve ever seen.
UPDATE: The townhouse is located at 336 W. 71st (between West End & Riverside Boulevard) Apparently Ann Curry bought a brownstone on the Upper West Side in 2003 that she’s never moved into. She started renovating it after the purchase, but due to lawsuits from neighbors, most construction stopped in 2006. While the Today Show [...]
This week’s unattainable apartment is beautiful a 6-story, 7,205 square foot townhouse on West 69th. Built circa 1898, it was completely renovated in 1998 to maximize natural light in every room while retaining the original prewar details. This was achieved by eliminating more than half of the garden-side of the 3rd floor, transforming the 2nd [...]
