Offered for sale is an approximately 5,415 square foot Italianate townhouse on East 71st Street between Lexington and 3rd Avenues. Originally built in 1867, this 5-story brownstone is currently configured as a multi-family building with four units, including a luxurious owner''s duplex on the garden and parlor floors which has been extensively renovated. This property presents an excellent opportunity for an immediate live-with-income scenario, a single family conversion, or somewhere in between.
The entrance to the owners duplex is located immediately within a small lobby at the garden level. With an approximately 25 foot deep extension on the garden and parlor floors, the approximately 2,750 square foot owner''s unit has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a large sunken living room, and a renovated kitchen with lacquered cabinets, Bertazzoni oven & induction range, and Wolf dishwasher.
The duplex is centered around a beautiful elliptical staircase, leading to a sitting area on the parlor floor with a fireplace and tasteful built-in shelving. The private master suite contains a large walk-in closet, master bath with rain shower and soaking tub, as well as french doors which open to the bedroom. This duplex also enjoys a stone foyer with bountiful coat closets, in-unit washer/dryer, and exclusive use of the building''s garden. The building''s stoop was removed in 1957, thus creating a beautiful full-width bedroom or living room with massive windows on the front of the south-facing parlor floor.
Located above the duplex on the third floor is a renovated 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment with an approximately 360 square foot terrace.
The fourth floor contains a 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment and on the fifth floor, where a mansard-roofed addition was later added, there is another renovated 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment. Including a current renovation soon to be complete, all units have been gut renovated to a very high standard by the current ownership.
Located on a quiet townhouse block in the Upper East Side Historic District, this home is in close proximity to vibrant retail corridors on Lexington and Third Avenues, as well as the 6 train at 68th Street and Lexington Avenue and the Q train at 2nd Avenue and 72nd Street. A full setup with rent-roll is available upon request.
