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 third floor features a master bedroom suite with a south facing bedroom, substantial closet space, and a full bathroom with a shower 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 and two full bathrooms.

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.
