As Seen From the Windows...

For the most part, the townhouse market metrics are pretty basic. Width, lot, depth, blocks specifics, etc. however, sometimes we come across really unique opportunities. Townhouses are almost always abutted by other buildings, sometimes bigger and sometimes smaller. In rare instances, opportunities exist where that is not the case. These rare instances occur when a property is located on the borders of Manhattan, the East and Hudson Rivers. Two on market opportunities exist today at 142 East End Avenue and at 13 Sutton Place.

142 East End Avenue is a 4,200 sq.ft single-family home, never been lived in and completely gut renovated. The sunlight floods the home both front and back and the unobstructed views of Carl Schurz Park, the East River, and Gracie Mansion are unbelievable. Hard to replicate. Asking $7,500,000 or $1,783 PSF.

13 Sutton Place is one of the most impressive views which exists from a townhouse. Overlooking the exclusive enclave known as the "Sutton Gardens", each rear room of this house floods with natural light with sight lines of the beautifully and professionally landscaped garden. At 4,800 square feet with an elevator and 5 bedrooms, the asking price has just been reduced to $9,950,000.
