Two townhouses in the Greenwich Village Historic district with “megamansion potential” are now for sale, asking a cool $15.6 million.

The adjacent properties at 133 and 135 West 13th Street together span 9,600 square feet of interior space and 1,800 square feet in outdoor space, Curbed reported. Both houses have 6 apartments, which are occupied. However, the property at 135 West 13th Street will be delivered vacant, according to the website, and proceedings are ongoing to remove rent-stabilized tenants from the property next door.

In 2008, an investment group acquired the properties for a combined $9.2 million, public records show. Using an LLC, they paid $3.7 million for 133 West 13th Street and $5.5 million for 135 West 13th Street. Five years later, the group listed the properties for $15.9 million in an attempt to escape foreclosure proceedings.

“A megamansion would be ideal,” Leslie J. Garfield’s TRData LogoTINY Matthew Pravda, who has the listing with Christopher Riccio, told the website.

Megamansions are certainly proving popular in the area. Telecom mogul Dexter Goei is planning to convert his 11,000 square-foot property at 138 West 11th Street into a single family home.  Actress Sarah Jessica Parker shelled out $34.5 million for a dual townhouse at the nearby 273-275 West 11th Street last year.  Napster founder and former Facebook president Sean Parker has a similar idea, and is combining two townhouses on West 10th Street.

The properties at West 13th Street are within the boundaries of the Greenwich Village historic district, and all changes would need to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

In 2016, there were 112 contracts on townhouses priced over $4 million, compared to 130 in 2015. The average asking price was $10.4 million, down from $10.9 million, according to Olshan Realty[Curbed]Miriam Hall
