Well guess what just hit the market? Yep, this sassy number is now available to the highest bidder.
In case you were planning on buying any old brownstone and slapoing a coat of pepto bismol on it - forget it. These brownstones are protected by the Landmarks commission. You can't so much as paint your front door without verifying your choice is a historically appropriate color and getting their okay. In other words, if pink is your color, this is the only game in town.
This one has been a bubblegum shade shade for decades - well before the landmarks commission had a say. In these parts, this house is not only hard to miss, its a controversial topic that elicits all sorts of opinions on house preservation, personal freedom and color theory.
Very ironic to me is that the interior woodwork is unpainted. You'd think someone so liberal with a bold hue as this owner would be even more free on the inside. No matter, I'd love to have a crack at redoing this place. Its had the same owners for 60 years and is crying out for some fabulous refreshing, don't you think?
Now don't get too excited and bid all at once, the price is as striking as the paint - a mere $2.5 million.
