In the market for an opulent residence in one of the city's stateliest neighborhoods? Look no further than this 19th-century townhouse in Gramercy, which is on the market after being owned by the same family for 150 years. The asking price is $7.5 million—a comparatively sane number for a Manhattan townhouse, and less than many four-bedroom condos on the market downtown
The main level of the house, repped by CORE, features high ceilings, marble fireplaces, and the building's original arched entryways:
There's also a back garden featuring a "100-year-old Ailanthus tree," also accessible via a separate, direct entrance located on 19th street.
