TV handyman Bob Vila has listed a five-story brownstone on Manhattan’s Upper West Side for $11,500,000. The New York Observer’s “Manhattan Transfers” column today wrote about Vila’s listing of the brownstone, which is at 21 W. 75th Street on the Upper West Side. The paper reported that Vila and his son, Chris, had renovated the brownstone for season 15 of Vila’s show “Bob Vila’s Home Again.” The year the brownstone was built is unclear. The Observer reported that it was constructed 110 years ago, while public records show that the town house was built in 1910. Public records also state that the brownstone contains 7,562 square feet. Other features in the town house, according to listing information, include a basement, nine bedrooms, nine baths, quarter-sawn ash floors, a video intercom, an original plaster molded ceiling in the living room, and state-of-the-art bathrooms. The nine bedrooms were because the brownstone had been broken up at one time into nine units. Records show that Vila had paid exactly $4,000,000 for the brownstone in May 2004.

On April 13, 2007, we wrote about Vila selling one unit in the Museum Tower building.
