The Hot Sheet: A $5M UWS townhouse with a waterfall

A townhouse hitting the market today for $4.95 million comes with a waterfall.

The four-story brownstone at 157 West 87th Street is listed with Vandenberg, the Townhouse Experts. A renovation completed in 2006 gave the century-old house stainless steel appliances and a wine refrigerator, said Dexter Guerrieri, Vandenberg's president, and a custom-landscaped garden with bamboo plantings and a 5-foot-tall waterfall.

The waterfall is currently covered in ice and snow, but when the weather improves, it provides "soothing sounds," Guerrieri said. The flagstone-paved backyard also has a hydraulically operated awning.

Another unusual feature is the house's two skylights; one at the top of the stairs, and another one in the middle of the house that helps bring in more natural light, he said.

The second skylight "transports the light all the way down to the parlor floor," Guerrieri said.
