According to Sotheby’s description of this newly listed property, “408 West 20th Street represents a rare opportunity to acquire a grand and lovingly maintained home on the most desirable street in Chelsea. In addition to its location, this outstanding property is blessed with the ‘holy trinity’ of coveted townhouse features: exceptional scale, brilliant light, and large front and rear gardens.” What they failed to mention in that true but lacking description is that this 12 room property is Elaine Benes’s townhouse from Seinfeld. Originally built in 1839 and located in the heart of Chelsea, this 4,730-square-feet property spans five floors with a total of six bedrooms, 4 full and 2 partial baths, eight fireplaces, along with huge ceilings, a parlor level, floor-to-ceiling windows and a garden complete with a foundtain and pond. If you have a bunch of money to invest and you want to own a piece of television history, the townhouse is currently on the market for $8.65 million.
