Property Description

41 West 68th Street is a multi-unit townhouse offering an ideal owner/user scenario or investment opportunity. Perfectly located on a prime Upper West Side block between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. The 18' wide- five story plus basement--Renaissance and Romanesque Revival style townhouse--currently offers the entire parlor floor (vacant - owner occupied), garden rear, second and third floor front apartments vacant. The ground floor front apartment (currently on a month to month basis) could be combined with the garden floor rear apartment and the parlor floor to make an incredible user duplex with a garden. Fully rented - the current yearly gross rental income including the parlor floor at $5,000 a month would be $284,364.

Henry Andersen was the architect and Duncan C. McKinley the builder of the house circa 1892-94. The facade is painted brownstone and retains many of its original decorative elements as well as the stoop. Inside, one is welcomed into a beautiful original carved wood entry that sets the tone for the entire house. Exceptionally high ceilings throughout, original decorative fireplaces and pocket doors are just a few of the many features of the landmarked property.

The location couldn't be more desirable. Exit 41 West 68th Street and go left to Central Park for world-class outdoor enjoyment, or go right to Columbus Avenue for the many delicious restaurants and chic shops that the Upper West Side of New York has to offer. A few blocks south and you're in the heart of Lincoln Center.

Whether you plan to use part of the house as home/pied-a-terre - or rent the entire house out - this is an amazing opportunity to enjoy the convenience and beauty of life on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Please contact us with any questions you may have and / or to receive the complete set-up for the building.

The house is SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please contact us today to schedule yours.

Quick Profile

Centered, in name and location, around the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Square’s history is heavily steeped in strong African American and Afro-Caribbean roots. Iconic jazz pianist, Thelonious Monk, is counted among its many former artistic and professional denizens.

The neighborhood is beloved for its amazing shopping, its distinguished art scene, and phenomenal restaurants--and don’t forget Central Park. From Lincoln Square, one is at the gateway to virtually everything New York City has to offer, either in your backyard or via excellent subway access.

With its beautiful pre-war architecture surrounded by some of NYC’s premier skyscrapers, Lincoln Square has become a safe, much sought after neighborhood. If you like living in the action, there are few places in the world that can rival Lincoln Square.
