Description

This is a rare opportunity to live off Central Park in a spacious and historic townhouse triplex that's 3,480 sq ft and have your two free market apartments pay all of the real estate taxes, heat, electricity, insurance, super-everything !-and still have money left over to pay towards the mortgage. 58 West 85th Street is a beautifully restored and renovated 3-unit brownstone on one of the prettiest tree-lined townhouse blocks on the Upper West Side with approximately 5,785 square feet total interior space on 5 floors. Your triplex has one of the UWS's best gardens, 18' x 26' south facing and no intruding extensions. This house offers future opportunity to expand or adjust the living space to your evolving needs, convert to a single family or make a 3 unit condominium. And you bought it for half of what condos are selling for per sq ft on the UWS.
Here are the economics: The two tenants are paying a combined $8,335 monthly which is $100,020 annually. The tenants pay their own electric. The owner pays the building's real estate taxes of $58,700 annually (this is a Class 1 house so increase in RET are limited to 6%/year) and the operating expenses (heat, electric, insurance, water, service contracts and maintenance) all of which comes to under $20,000 annually. That leaves an annual profit to the owner of about $21,000. No common charges, no real estate taxes. And a far better value than paying over $2,000 per square foot for a condo (call me and I will show you the math!)
