About this property
Built circa 1910, this charming 5-story brownstone is available for the first time in over 30 years. It has been beautifully maintained and still retains many of its original details.
The home most recently served as an office space for a legendary documentary film production company, but offers a perfect opportunity for a conversion to a single family home or another type of office/live/work scenario. The building is 17 feet wide and has approximately 4,152 square feet of interior space. In addition, there is a lovely landscaped 680 square foot garden and a delightful terrace on the fifth floor.
This elegant townhome offers several possibilities as the property is NOT landmarked. The property will be delivered vacant – and has low taxes of $28,070/year as of February 2022.
The classic stoop invites you up to enter the parlor floor through its distinctive blue door. Once inside, you will see that the original wainscoting and staircase with ornate bannister and balustrades are all in beautiful condition and give the house its warm character. Traditionally, the parlor floor is used for the home’s “entertaining rooms.” In our photos, we have virtually staged the front room as a sitting room/library. The large room (currently an executive office) would be the living room. With ceilings just shy of 11 feet and flooded with sun, this floor is a treasure!
We envision the ground floor with the kitchen in the front. We have virtually staged the generous back room as the dining room. This room has a lovely set of French doors that open to the landscaped garden. The separate ground floor entrance affords easy package delivery directly to the kitchen level.
The top three floors have great flexibility to be used however the new owners choose. They all have refinished wood floors and are flooded with light. A north facing terrace on the fifth floor offers a different style of outdoor space – always nice to have a choice! The finished basement has approximately 875 sf of usable space separated from the area that houses the mechanicals of the building. This clean clear space could easily house a wine cellar, extensive storage and a laundry room.
Located between Central and Riverside Park, and just a few blocks from Whole Foods, Trader Joes as well as all kinds of transportation and schools, you could not find a more convenient location.
