Property Description:

Seize the Opportunity! Vacant 20-Foot Wide TownhouseNo Landmarks Restrictions For Your RenovationThis sun-soaked townhouse is ready for your vision. It is already vacant, and primed for a luxurious renovation. Boasting twenty feet of width with a hundred-foot deep lot, there is room to extend the townhouse footprint upwards, digging down the cellar level further and squaring off the existing extension. Imagine a garden level designed for casual living that flows out to a private, lush backyard. Or the opportunity to entertain guests in a massive, open-concept parlour that integrates soaring ceilings and walls of glass with harmonious seating and a chef's kitchen.The existing upper floors are incredibly spacious. The Third Floor can host a grand primary bedroom suite while the Fourth Floor accommodates a configuration of multiple bedrooms and baths. And it gets better! A future Fifth Floor with roof deck is possible as there are no Landmarks restrictions on this block of West 78th Street.223 West 78th Street already has a stoop that takes you to the parlour floor and the house is located in a beautiful townhouse row on a quiet street, but close to every where you would want to be. Low taxes complete the package. Priced to sell, there is not another townhouse opportunity like this on the market.
