For space-starved New Yorkers looking for a little more elbow room, Soho’s only free-standing townhouse is now available for $9.995 million, according to a property listing that hit the market this afternoon. This marks the very first time that the spread has come to market since it was built in 1930, according to a teaser Instagram pic posted yesterday by Nest Seekers’ Ryan Serhant, the listing broker.
“If you’re going to pay $10 million for an apartment in Soho, why not just get your own house?” said Serhant, who shares the listing with Katherine Salyi, adding that he’s already booked 18 showings for the three-story home from yesterday’s Instagram shot.
The 2,500-square-foot, 20-foot-wide home is located at 514 Broome Street near Thompson Street. It has four exposures, a landscaped outdoor terrace and a 2,500-bottle capacity wine cellar, according to the listing. The home also boasts wood-burning and gas fireplaces, a glass ceiling in the kitchen and media room with a wet bar. That’s in addition to not sharing any walls with a neighbor, of course.
The property is not landmarked, and can either be built on or it can be demolished to make way for a new 5,000-square-foot structure.
In all, the home comes equipped with two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. — Zachary Kussin
