This beautiful 1864 townhouse is one of Murray Hill's largest homes. The elegant edifice is situated on an attractive tree-lined block. Approximately 5,780 square feet with an additional full basement, the property has two residential units and one commercial space with a private entrance. Many period details remain, including fireplace surrounds, curving staircases, wooden shutters and hardwood floors. Amenities include 11.5-foot ceilings on the parlor floor, planted garden and balcony, direct stairs and bulkhead to the roof, two renovated kitchens and laundry in both units. There are exposures on four sides, highlighted by an immense oriel window, which is the main architectural feature on the front facade. The building can be delivered vacant and is perfect for a large single family home, live/work, investment or a small embassy. Air rights include an additional 1,700+ square feet buildable. Minutes away from Grand Central, Metro North and Subways.
