47 West 92nd Street
One of the inside secrets of New York City is the exclusive living on the Upper West Side townhouse blocks adjacent to Central Park. A pristine quiet envelops every one of these blocks, yet you are minutes away from the City’s busiest neighborhoods and only footsteps from every amenity, schools, restaurants, and the splendor of Central Park. This Manhattan townhouse places you in ideal proximity to all that one would want. Originally built in 1890, this New York City townhouse features a gorgeous restored façade; a wonderful front patio complete with a tree; and an expansive private backyard. The garden is unusually large. A brick path winds around plentiful space, enough to create your own vegetable and herb garden. Its shrubs and trees rival those in Central Park. This rear gardens so uncommonly spacious it’s like having a private park for you and your family. Note that the house footprint can be enlarged; zoning typically would allow you to add extra footage on the first floors, so long as you keep a 30-foot garden.
Currently, 47 West 92nd Street is configured as an owner’s duplex, plus two floors of rental apartments above. The rentals are all one-bedrooms that rent month-to-month, with two apartments on each of the upper two floors. The rental income from the apartments will lower the cost of owning your own NYC brownstone. Or, because they are month-to-month you also have the option of incorporating these floors into your own single-family residence. You will love this Upper West Side Townhouse.
