Broadway producer Bill DeSeta and his wife Donna listed their 10,000-square-foot Townhouse On West 80th Street for $20 million.

The couple paid $170,000 for the home at 323 West 80th Street in 1970, the New York Post reported. It was then a single-room-occupancy hotel, separated into 20 rooms. They spent $200,000 renovating the home, and it now features a 3,000-square-foot owners’ duplex and eight separate units. There’s also a private roof-garden and garage. The landmarked building was built in 1897, according to the post.

Townhouse prices in Manhattan showed signs of recovery in the second quarter of 2017. While the number of contracts fell by 30 percent, according to a report from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties, the median price rose by over 9 percent.

DeSeta used to run the East Village rock club the Bitter End and has a background in producing plays and serving as a film production designer. [NYP]Miriam Hall
