Located on a tranquil, tree-lined block ending in Beekman Place, this elegantly proportioned 4 story townhouse is now available for the first time in over 40 years. It measures approximately 19.5 ft +/- in width, and comprises approximately 3,675 sf +/-, plus a 975 sf +/- basement. The current configuration includes 4 bedrooms, 4 windowed bathrooms, 2 separate kitchens with garden views and 4 fireplaces, each chimneyed to the roof. The townhouse possesses significant air rights, suggesting that up to 4,125 sf +/- of living area could potentially be added, subject to Department of Buildings approval. The generously proportioned garden is approximately 49 feet +/- deep and is planted with mature perennials.
The current configuration will require re-imagining but the scale of the townhouse is comfortable and it still "reads" as a single family home, as opposed to a townhouse divided up into apartments. The townhouse faces South and looks across to other 4 story townhouses, bathing it in direct sunlight for most of the afternoon. With its prime location, elegant proportions and the potential to add significant square footage, 413 East 50th represents a compelling opportunity for the next owners to create an exceptional residence.
