Not to be (greatly) outdone by its uptown neighbor across the park, the Upper West Side continues to break asking price records for its high-end townhouses.

The stately granite-and-iron-spot-brick townhouse at 24 West 71st Street is being listed for $29 million dollars. If sold at that price, it would top the current record of $25 million for a property in the neighborhood, set by 247 Central Park West, the New York Times reported.

The five-story, 7,134-square-foot building, situated in a historic district, was built in 1892 by architects Hugh Lamb and Charles Alonzo Rich.

It was extensively renovated in 1988 by its then-owners, Michael and Marcy Balk, at a cost of $1 million. The couple then sold the building in 1996 for $4.3 million, an UWS record at the time.

Dexter Guerrieri, president of Vandenberg, is the listing broker for the property. He also brokered the 1996 sale.

The house is currently owned by Arrien and Robin Schiltkamp. It has six bedrooms, six and a half baths, 10 gas fireplaces, an elevator, a Japanese spa, and several extra kitchens. [NYT]Ariel Stulberg
