Super Old Townhouse Selling For “Reasonable” Price

One of the oldest townhouses on the Upper West Side is for sale .. and while not cheap, it definitely seems to be under market value. As first reported by, 383 West End Avenue was listed two days ago for $4,795,000, which comes out to $1,477 per square foot (it’s 3,245 square feet).

Just keep in mind that the average price per square foot on the UWS is $1,507 according to Trulia. And according to NeighborhoodX, the average Manhattan home sells for $1,773 per foot.


So given the prime location of this townhouse (between 78th and 79th Streets), and the fact that larger properties typically have a higher per-foot price, it seems a bit strange.

And it’s small for a townhouse … but still!  According to Streeteasy, it’s currently the second least expensive single family townhouse on the UWS.

And don’t get me wrong … I’m a blogger. Which means I cannot afford to live here. And it means I cringe a bit while writing that it’s “only” $4,795,000. But in terms of market value, it’s a good deal.

The townhouse was built in 1886, and comes with 14 rooms, 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms (it can be a single family or a legal two-family home).

Herringbone floors and built-in bookcases grace the living room.
