DELIVERED VACANT for Conversion to Single Family Townhouse, OR Two to Five Unit Multi-Family w/ Rare Ground-Floor Commercial Unit: Currently zoned as a legal five-family house with a ground-level commercial unit, the four floors of this pre-war brownstone have been opened up by the seller into a clean shell, presenting buyers with a versatile canvas to bring their vision to life. OPTION 1: SINGLE FAMILY CONVERSION - Mabbott Seidel Architects have included plans that re-imagine this historic building into a stunning single-family home with a clean contemporary design and smart layout for the modern family. The architect's design is accented with natural stone, high-end finishes, rich wood elements, and large south-facing windows to bathe each floor in light. Their plans have been masterfully illustrated through renderings and proposed floor plans presented here. The rear facade may be extended utilizing additional available FAR, adding approx. 1,085 SF for a total 5,313 SF of living space. This would allow for six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms, with an option to maintain the commercial unit, if desired. A proposed fully finished basement includes space for a gym, wine cellar, additional storage, and a mechanical room. The planned open chef's kitchen on the ground floor flows effortlessly into an informal family dining and living space, and out through an expansive, fully retractable, wall of glass and natural wood, creating a seamless marriage of indoor and outdoor living into the backyard. A proposed fifth floor may be added and utilized as a media room or an additional 6th bedroom with a large adjacent terrace. OPTION 2: FIVE-FAMILY W/ COMMERCIAL UNIT - Currently zoned a legal five family with ground floor commercial space, the upper floors can be reverted to a five family house to maximize rental income. Details available upon request. OPTION 3: TWO TO THREE FAMILY WITH COMMERCIAL UNIT - For a buyer seeking a 3 bedroom duplex with excellent additional rental income, one can utilize available FAR and extend the building by 1,083sf, and add a keyed elevator and a penthouse level, creating a beautiful 3 bedroom two floor residence with a private terrace and garden for personal use, and collect notable income from the commercial unit and a penthouse level duplex two bedroom rental unit with home office and private terrace, or smaller apartments. There are various potential configurations here. Details available upon request.
