Friends fans, step aside, because there’s another '90s sitcom about to take over and we don’t just mean on Netflix.

Built in 1839, the New York City townhouse features the “holy trinity,” which includes “exceptional scale, brilliant light, and large front and rear gardens,” boasts the listing. Located at 408 West 20th Street in the neighborhood of Chelsea, the 5-story townhouse spans over 4,730-square-feet with 6-bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 2.5 baths.

But if that doesn’t sound luxurious enough, the home also features high ceilings, hand-carved moldings, and an astonishing eight fireplaces. New Yorkers can easily escape into their own private oasis by stepping into the lush green garden complete with a fountain and pond.

Looking for activities in your new neighborhood? You can take a short walk to the Whitney Museum of American Art, Chelsea Market, or the High Line. It's also important to note that this is the first time in 24 years that Elaine Benes’s Seinfeld townhouse has been put up for sale. The current homeowners, Harry Azorin and Lori Monson, purchased it back in 1995 for $950,000, captivated by its historic character.

“We grabbed the house even though it needed work with some of the structure because it just felt right,” Monson told The Wall Street Journal of the needed renovations. “The house has a soul.”
