|175 West 88th Street – $3,895,000|
From its soaring ceilings and classic stoop to its lush garden, 175 West 88th Street is the home you pictured when you first dreamed of owning a brownstone on the Upper West Side. Exposed brick, stained glass fanlight transoms, restored original woodwork, and original fireplaces are among the well-preserved details in many rooms. At the same time, renovated baths, brand-new kitchen appliances, and a semi-finished cellar make the owner’s duplex move-in ready.
What really sets this UWS townhouse apart is its flexibility. You can combine one or more of the rentals into an enviable owner’s unit or single-family. You can also live in the current owner’s duplex and collect high rental income from two free-market apartments above. If you need more bedrooms, consider an upper triplex with garden access for yourself plus rental income from a garden/basement duplex. In sum, this brownstone is a true home, ready to grow with you as your needs change over the next ten or twenty years.
Vandenberg has sold more townhouses on 88th and 87th Streets than any other location in the city. This Columbus/Amsterdam corridor is a townhouse-lined block with a beauty that is hard to match.
