Marius Meland, founder of the legal news service, Law360, has listed his lovely Park Slope townhouse at 167 Sixth Avenue for $4.95 million, per StreetEasy records.

The house is so perfect, in fact, that it was featured in Noah Baumbach’s 2005 movie, “The Squid and the Whale.” According to the listing, it’s undergone some renovation since the movie; Meland hired architect Kimberly Neuhaus to redo it, and we have to say she’s done a glorious job.

Currently configured as a two-family home with a ground floor apartment, the home can  easily be converted into a single family, according to the listing. The 3,600-square-foot townhouse has a total of five bedrooms, three bathrooms, four fireplaces, a yoga room with radiant heating and a lovely backyard with a Magnolia tree. Meland and Eng Kian Ooi paid $3.45 million for the home in 2012. Lesley Semmelhack of Corcoran has the listing.

Meland, who founded Law360 in 2004, sold the site and parent company Portfolio Media to the research firm LexisNexis in 2012 for a reported $150 million.

He also owns a townhouse in the West Village at 112 Washington Place, which he put on the market for $12.5 million in January.
