Property Description

JLL has been retained on an exclusive basis to arrange for the sale of 17 West 82nd Street, a 23’ wide multi-family brownstone located on the north side of West 82nd Street steps from Central Park. The property has been owned and managed by the same family for multiple generations and is being offered for sale for the first time in nearly 50 years. Constructed in 1886 as one of an original row of nine houses, this exceptionally wide townhouse is currently configured as 8 apartments of which 6 are Free Market (including 2 owner occupied) and 2 are Rent Controlled. The apartments consist of an owner-occupied triplex with private elevator and a spacious garden, a one-bedroom two-bath duplex, a three-bedroom floor-through with a balcony and solarium overlooking the garden, a three-bedroom duplex with two large roof decks, and 4 one-bedroom apartments. The property features 7 floors of living space with tall ceilings throughout, the original wooden staircase, ample outdoor space and a favorable Class 2B Tax Status. Its 23-feet in width is a rarity which presents purchasers with significant flexibility when designing future plans. Recent improvements include the installation of a private elevator in the owner’s triplex and a full façade replacement. The house lies within the Upper West Side – Central Park West Historic District and possesses approximately 2,012 SF of additional air-rights. Any future use of the air-rights will besubject to Landmark’s & Preservation Commissions approval. Due to its width and stellar location, 17 West 82nd Street presents an exceptional opportunity for investment or liveplus-income for an owner/user, with substantive future appreciation potential as a single-family home. 17 West 82nd Street is offered as part of the McDonnell Portfolio of four Upper West Side multi-family townhouses which are being offered separately or as a package. Each property will be sold on an as-is, where-is, basis.

Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
