49 West 90thStreet is the needle-in-the-haystack you’ve been looking for: a five-story townhouse with a spacious garden, fully deregulated tenancies, and a Central Park-Block location. Nothing on the market right now has this much potential to become an ideally-located, five-story single-family home. Alternatively, earn free-market income from the existing rental units.
West 90th Street is one of the prettiest tree-lined, Park blocks on the Upper West Side. Columbus Avenue’s shopping and dining are only steps away. Enjoy Central Park in all its beauty, only steps from your door, or access the entire city via nearby 1, 2, 3, B, and C trains.
Enter on the garden level via the well-kept foyer. The garden-level apartment is a two-bedroom that extends the entire length of the building. With exposed brick, an updated kitchen, and both North and South exposures, this unit has extraordinary potential as part of a future owner’s unit. French doors open onto the rear garden, a quiet, peaceful retreat you can make your own.
This level hosts a one-bedroom apartment and a studio. With soaring 12’ ceilings and oversized, sunny south windows, this would make a remarkable entertaining space. The current apartments include hardwood floors, kitchenettes, and an extension.
Third and Fourth Floors:
The third floor has a front studio and a rear one-bedroom apartment. The fourth floor houses two studios, one with a terrace overlooking a block of peaceful townhouse gardens.
This level holds a spacious one-bedroom apartment. The rear living room has hardwood floors, the bath is currently being updated, and the front bedroom is roomy and bright. With high, almost ten-foot ceilings, oversized southern exposures, and hardwood floors, this level most recently rented for $3,000/month. It could provide excellent free-market income, or be seamlessly incorporated into a single-family home.
This unfinished space has a great ceiling height and currently houses the building mechanicals.
