About this property
Offered for the first time in twenty-five years, 51 East 7th Street is an exceptionally unique five-family Civil War era red brick townhouse, with the rare distinction of being entirely free market. Thoughtfully restored, each apartment combines both the preservation of original detail such as inlaid hardwood and tiled flooring, with modern upgrades such as newly designed kitchens and bathrooms, split-unit air-conditioning/heating units, and washers/dryers. Built 25′ × 75′ totaling 7,876 square feet on a 25′ × 97.5′ lot, the generous dimensions lend itself to spacious apartments, which are in short supply and high demand in Manhattan.
Currently, the townhouse is configured as three sprawling 3-bedroom floor-thru units with three exposures (North, South, East) across the top three floors, with large windowed eat-in-kitchens, a 3-bedroom garden duplex occupying both the garden level and approximately one-half of the parlor floor, and a spacious studio occupying the remainder of the parlor. Each apartment varies in ceiling height, fixtures, appliances, stained glass windows, decorative mantels, exposed brick, and original detail, making them truly charming and one-of-a-kind. This is an exceptional opportunity to own a townhouse with history and character still intact, in the heart of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in NYC; the East Village.
To date, the top three apartments are tenant-occupied, with the garden and parlor floors retained by the owner. Please consult with your architect to confirm the remaining FAR allowed, and the possibility to build additional floor(s). Zoned R8B, tax class 2A. Current annual tax bill is $28,406. Kindly note that several photos have been virtually staged. Showings will be held exclusively by appointment only.
