Not to be confused with 38-40 East 75th Street FLEXIBILITY PERSONIFIED IS WHAT YOU GET IN THIS HIDDEN GOLD COAST-TREASURE! For $12,500,000 you can have a 20' residence with an existing owner's 3-4 BR. Triplex with an outdoor patio, plus 8 units - Now vacant & totally decontrolled.
The 4 BR triplex has a double height Living room with 18' ceilings that is 19'X19' and a glass wall to the rear 9X13 patio. The triplex encompasses the entire ground floor plus the rear third of the second and third floors.
Need a home office? The ground floor of the triplex has 3 separate entrances to the public hall and the room nearest the public entry to the building completely closes off to create a home office which would be eminently suitable for a psychiatrist et al. The double height Living room would work brilliantly for a private art dealer as a live/work situation, especially as the two triplex bedrooms above each have 13' ceilings.
Need more bedrooms? Just break through on the second floor and third floors of the triplex and easily add 1, 2, 3 or even 4 bedrooms to the triplex from within the apartment, and still maintain 4 income units above which are accessible by a separate public hall and stair OR, completely alter the building into a single family dwelling.
Still not enough space ? Then consider also buying 40 East 75th Street, which is a 6 story elevator building directly next door. This would create an amazing 38' expanse on a 102'.17" lot in a brilliant "Gold Coast" neighborhood and create your very own 14,500 square foot "Mc Mansion".
These two buildings were originally built by the same builder/AIA's, Thom & Wilson in the late 1800"s. The elevations match up perfectly on the ground floor and vary only slightly on the upper levels.
