Vacant 21' Wide Eastside Townhouse

22 East 81st Street is located on a prime residential block off 5th Avenue near Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum. This 21’ wide 6-story house was built as a single family residence in 1883 and re-designed in the 1970’s by renowned architect Robert A. M. Stern. The house includes Stern’s dramatic owner’s triplex with spacious landscaped garden, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 3 half baths. Also included are 6 income-producing apartments, all vacant. The house is ideal to develop as an elite single family residence or luxury rental property, or to live in “rent free” with enough rental income to cover carrying costs. Zoning permits commercial uses also, including art gallery, restaurant, or shop. The total area is roughly 7,550 S.F. and the total buildable area is roughly 9,112 SF including half the garden level. The house is in excellent condition with high ceilings and working fireplaces throughout. Proceeds benefit the Irving and Phyllis Millstein Charitable Trust for Animals.
