A nearly $4 million townhouse on the corner of 38th Street and Lexington Avenue is back on the market.

Owners Shaun Honig and Elizabeth Heller Honig recently re-listed the 19th-century Manhattan building, located at 136 East 38th Street, for $3.985 million with Leslie Garfield, after more than two years of a lackluster response from potential buyers, Curbed reported.

Even after the building’s $3.995 million selling price placed it within the cheapest move-in ready townhouses available for purchase in Manhattan last summer, no bites came, according to the blog.

The single-family structure, originally bought for $2.35 million in February 2005, has been on and off the market since October 2011.

The casement windows, which now include modern noise-preventing additions, originated during the 1860s. The plumbing and electrical systems, as well as four fireplaces and a roof deck, are among the recent updates in the building. [Curbed]Michele Richinick
