Reality TV pioneer Judy McGrath listing her own luxury NYC crib

Reality TV pioneer Judy McGrath, the former chairwoman and CEO of MTV Networks, is listing her own luxury crib.

McGrath, a 30-year MTV vet who began as a writer, was known as the network’s “moral compass” with a rock ‘n’ roll soul. Her Upper West Side brownstone is now on the market for $7.99 million.

The recently remodeled, turn-of-the-century townhouse, on West 89th Street, features an open stairwell and four-story atrium — along with a skylight in the center of the home.

There’s also a landscaped garden and terrace — just off Central Park West. At 5,930 square feet, the four-story, 19-foot-wide home features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two powder rooms.

There’s also a separate one-bedroom, 1½-bath garden apartment that can be reincorporated into the rest of the home, or serve as an in-law/staff suite or rental unit.

The parlor floor showcases a two-story, wood-paneled curved wall, a living room with a game area that holds a grand piano, full-size pool table and seating area with a woodburning fireplace, along with a windowed powder room and wet bar.

Modern double doors open to an outdoor landing with access to a 400-square-foot garden.

The second floor features a chef’s kitchen, formal living room with a fireplace, a triple-bay window overlooking West 89th Street and a formal dining room connected by an open walkway around the atrium.
