Coffee Heath Bar Crunch is actually my favorite, but the store was out

I was just reading the online real estate section over at The New York Times. I eat up photos of homes for sale, which would be a pretty low-cal hobby if I wasn't also chowing down on Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk ice-cream.

I had to share this townhouse with you. It's on Manhattan's Upper East Side and is for sale for just under $15 million. I know what you're thinking: Why not Chunky Monkey? That's good too, but banana isn't my favorite flavor.

As for the townhouse: Love that red door. And these ebony floors and staircase:

And this ceiling:

And maybe, best of all, this view of the staircase. Wouldn't it be cool, standing there looking down at that? How many flights to the refrigerator do you figure?

Guess what I had for dinner last night?

That's right, 1/2 a pint of Coffee Heath Bar Crunch.

Jealous?

there has been a lot of Ben and Jerry's in my house lately...
my hubby likes "half baked" and i am allergic to chocolate so I have the "pistachio pistachio"

and I want to live in that house!

Good NIGHT!! I hope they have cleaning supplies on all levels...I'd HATE to carry them up and down each time.

Holy cow...that staircase must be a good chunk of that 15 mill. :)

Caren said...

Please stop by my blog. I am hosting a great give-away, again, with Matthew Mead. It involves his latest book, and a gift card from HomeGoods...except this time there are, basically, thirty prizes!!

Have a great week!

This is the type of house I dream of. Sigh...

Maybe they'll drop the price because of the economy. By $14.5 mil or so. ;-)

Coffee Heath Bar Crunch is my favorite too.

Can you imagine carrying stuff up and down those stairs?

Blessings,

I am really loving your blog. It's like reading an issue of "House Beautiful", but better. I'm always looking for ideas because one day I'm going to build a house... if my house would ever sell. I'm off to read more of your blog.
