An early 19th century house has broken the record for the highest price paid for a townhouse in downtown Manhattan.

The home at 37 West 10th Street sold for $37.2 million, according to the New York Times. Built in the style of Greek Revival architecture, the townhouse is dated to 1838.

The five-story home was sold by British interior designer Rebekah Caudwell and real estate developer Nicolas Dupart. Caudwell and Dupart bought the home for $9.5 million in 2012 and extensively renovated the property. The 9,800-square-foot house now reportedly has six bedrooms, six fireplaces, a home theater, gym and sauna, as well as a deck with a outdoor kitchen on the roof.

Yearly property taxes are nearly $103,000. [NYT]
