815 Fifth Avenue - Upper East Side, New York
Located on the most desirable block of Fifth Avenue, the most prestigious of all Manhattan neighborhoods, this remarkable landmark 6 story townhouse designed by the architect Samuel A. Warner for William Raynor and William Stewart, boasts 25ft of frontage directly onto Central Park. Built as a pair of townhouses with #814 in 1870, it is the oldest building on Fifth Avenue between 59th and 110th Streets. Prior to its sale to Verna Scott Cushman, who commissioned the changes to the façade, it was owned by William and Gladys Ziegler who then moved to their new mansion at 2 East 63rd Street. 815 Fifth Avenue is intact with stunning original detail and represents an unprecedented opportunity. Currently configured as twelve free market apartments and two professional offices with an elevator, this property can continue as is with strong income, upgrade to raise the rent roll significantly, or be converted back to a single family trophy mansion with spectacular Central Park views.
