89 Remsen Street Historic Landmark Townhouse Circa 1840. The townhouse is currently configured with two duplex homes, and a high income generating professional office on the ground floor. The ground floor is built almost full lot providing for a very large terrace for the parlor floor duplex above. This property providing space, flexibility and income is located on one of the most elegant tree lined, historic landmarked blocks in New York City.
Sunshine pours into the grand front parlor of the lower duplex through south facing windows. Crown moldings on 11'4" ceilings surround the perimeter of the living room and middle dining room which are graced with matching marble fireplace mantles, parquet floors, and other original details. A good-sized office in the rear of the parlor floor is adjacent to the kitchen which opens onto the 25' x28' deck. There is lots of room to create an above-ground terrace garden while still retaining a large area to dine and relax. A half-bath completes this floor. An interior staircase leads to the upper level of the parlor duplex. This floor consists of a large front bedroom with side den/office and an en suite bathroom. There is another large bedroom in the back, as well as a multi-functional room in the center. An additional full bathroom along with excellent storage space completes this floor.
Access to the upper duplex is via the still intact original staircase. This apartment has three bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a full width deck, and lots of light and space.
This townhouse offers the new owner a choice of options. Live in the parlor duplex and collect income from the upper rental or combine both apartments into your spacious dream home. Bring your architect to examine the possibilities.
This is a smart buyer's opportunity to create a functioning home of beauty, light, and authentic historic charm, while generating consistent income from the existing professional space.
