226 East 79th Street

One-of-a-Kind Townhouse In the Heart of the Upper East Side

226 East 79th Street is a beautifully maintained five story townhouse with five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. This a truly one of a kind home, with an abundance of space and light with manicured outdoor space and a functional layout.

The parlor floor provides ample space for entertaining, with a living room in the front of the house and a chef's kitchen in the rear. French doors off the kitchen open into a spacious, planted terrace, with stairs accessing the garden below.

The third floor features a master bedroom suite with a south facing bedroom, substantial closet space, and a full bathroom with ashower and jacuzzi. The third floor also has a north facing library, that can easily convert into a fifth bedroom. The fourth floor features two bedrooms in the front of the house, along with another bedroom in the rear and a full bathroom.

The newly updated bathrooms feature heated bathroom floors. The townhouse also has a top-notch security system, along with central air conditioning, wiring for electrical/AV/data setups, and two wood burning fireplaces. This is luxury townhouse living at its finest.

The home is currently figured as a ground floor office space with an upper triplex that can easily be converted into a single family residence, or remain as a living space with an income-earning office. The ground floor office space has a separate entrance that can easily be captured into the rest of the home. In addition to the sun-filled garden, there's also a finished basement with a full bathroom.

The site fits for an investment opportunity to build a 15-story condominium with full floor units, a three floor town-home on the base, and a private elevator servicing all floors.
