209 East 48th Street is located just east of 777 Third Avenue in the heart of the Turtle Bay district of Manhattan. It incorporates a 27-block area with 8 million sq. ft. of commercial space, thousands of apartments and some of the finest residential townhouses in Manhattan. Immediate neighbors of the building generally are high-rise office buildings and small residential brownstones. No other micro-market in Manhattan enjoys the mixed-use character and convenience to workplace that this location provides. This gives the East Side a competitive advantage over other New York markets in its ability to capture a broad range of market demand segments.
The four-story, modernist townhouse is set back from the street line with a small private garden at the sidewalk level. Its stucco façade is accentuated by a distinctive window treatment. Cantilevered canopies protect the fourth floor windows and the street level entrance. With a total area of 5,440 sq. ft., the townhouse provides an ideal live/work opportunity for its occupants. The first floor is a separate unit, with a triplex unit making up the upper floors. A lush landscaped garden is located at the rear of the building.
