House of the Day: 41 Montgomery Place

This three-story limestone at 41 Montgomery Place has had the same owner since the mid-1960s. The house has three working fireplaces, parquet floors, neo-classical-style plaster details and wood work, and stained glass. The kitchen is located in the rear of the parlor floor and opens onto a deck. The house is currently being used as a one-family, although legally it is a two, according to the listing. 

It last sold for $20,000 in 1966, as The Daily News noted last week. Now the ask is $4,000,000. Think they’ll get it?

Update: Citi Habitats reached out to let us know that the sellers actually paid $32,500, not $20,000, back in 1966. Also a “funny fact” is that “the sellers back in 1966 threw in a big chest-style freezer they owned that the buyers liked,” the rep added.

  • $20,000 in 1966 = $143,800.62 in inflation adjusted dollars. They got a steal back then! In 1966 dollars a $4 million dollar house would have sold for $556,330.00, all things being equal.

    Of course it was probably still redlined and you couldn’t take out a mortgage on the property in ’66 -
