Welcome to 172 East 71 st Street, a landmarked townhouse on the tree-lined Breakfast at Tiffany’s block on the Upper East Side. This 19th-century brownstone is a must-see.
Abounding with magnificent details and high ceilings, the townhouse is presently arranged as a single-family triplex with an income-producing ground floor doctor’s office. The residence features 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms. The doctor’s office features two offices, a waiting room, an examination room, and two half bathrooms.
The townhouse spans approximately 3,750 above-grade Sq Ft, over 1,500 Sq Ft of additional space (terrace, garden, patio, and cellar), and approximately 2,946 Sq Ft of valuable unused air rights.
Original ornate details, mouldings, and hardwood floors are coupled with 21st-century amenities such as a recently installed hot water heater, central air conditioning, the Nest Learning Thermostat, modern kitchen, and renovated bathrooms.
From 71 st Street, walk-up your private stoop to an extremely bright parlour floor with intricate details finished in the mouldings and coffered ceilings. From the terrace, take the spiral staircase down to the picturesque garden, a peaceful space in a busy city. The parlour floor features cathedral-like 12’ ceilings, formal foyer, grand dining room, spacious living room, wood-burning fireplace, pass-through kitchen, powder room, 12’ tall enclosed glass solarium, terrace, and a coat closet.
Walk up the half spiral staircase to the master floor with a renovated master bathroom with a dual vanity, waterfall shower, marble finishes, and a linen closet. The master bedroom features a wood-burning fireplace and two oversized windows overlooking picturesque 71st Street. On the south side is a home office or a second master bedroom with a southern view overlooking the terrace and garden.
The third floor of the residence features two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a giant walk-in closet, and a laundry room.
This townhouse is primed for the next owner to write their own story and add to the legacy of 172 East 71 st Street and can be delivered vacant.
