Bargain Near Louisburg Square Has Old-School Elevator Telly

The most striking thing about this elegant 5,115-square-foot townhouse near Louisburg Square is that it was last sold two recessions ago, in January 2001, for $5,525,000 and was listed late last week for significantly less: $4,700,000. For that, you get period details (the house dates from 1850); five bedrooms; four full bathrooms and two halves; a skylight in the dining room; central air; a private back garden as well as a roof deck with views all the way, according to the listing, to the Financial District (or whatever we'll end up calling it); a wine cellar; and, coolest of all, a telly in the elevator. It's literally a bargain! Act now!
