It's not cheap, but at least 133 East 94th St. has a lot going for it. And by a lot, we mean a whole marching band's worth of bells and whistles. Listed for $6,995,000, the four-bedroom, three-bath single-family is described as "Carnegie Hill townhouse perfection."

Built in 1899, the four-story building has been significantly updated, while keeping many of the prewar details such as high ceilings, numerous wood-burning fireplaces, and original crown moldings. 

The parlor floor features a foyer, a formal living overlooking the landscaped garden, and dining room with south-facing windows. 

A large chef's kitchen with ample storage is on the garden level; that room flows into a living area, which has a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto the impressively landscaped 1,000-square-foot garden. This level also contains a full, windowed bathroom. 

The bedrooms, which have large windows and closets, are located on the top two floors, with the south-facing master bedroom featuring the original shutters and a wood-burning fireplace. Both top floors have windowed, full bathrooms, and a fourth-floor skylight brightens the center of the house. 

The 900-square-foot finished basement has a yoga room and laundry facilities. Additional upgrades include central air, sound system, wifi, and alarm system. 

The townhouse is located between Park and Lexington avenues, and is less that two blocks from the 96th Street stop for the 4 and 5 trains. Notable destinations nearby include the 92nd Street Y, The Dalton School and Hunter College High School, as well as major museums along Fifth Avenue and Central Park.
