The former home studio of the artist George Condo, 155 East 71st Street is a 20 foot wide, five story brick and stone townhouse built in the early 1900's with soaring ceilings and original detail. Falling within the Lexington Avenue Commercial Zone, the property presents as both income producing and single home conversion. Delivered vacant, the property is presently divided into three units. There is a ground floor and basement shop with separate entrance and rear garden, a duplex apartment on the second and third floor, which if added to the ground floor could be made commercial and a duplex on the fourth and fifth floor.
The Second, Third and Fourth floors have 11 plus foot ceiling heights and original crown moldings. The fifth floor has a brilliant skylight and spiral stair leading to the roof. Much of the wood flooring is original and in excellent condition. Each room has a working fireplace with elaborately designed mantels and recently refurbished chimneys. The Second and Fourth floors have access to their own terrace while the ground floor has a light filled garden.
A front garden area welcomes visitors to the building along with a wrought iron julliet balcony on the third floor. Oversized windows allow light to flood into each floor. Made famous by the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the block is one of the more refined townhouse blocks off of Lexington and is nearby to famed restaurants, high street fashion and all that the Upper East Side has to offer.
