On a prominent close-in Upper East corner, just a few short blocks to the Theater/Arts District, many fine dining restaurants, museums and parks, rests this timeless 1880's Queen Anne residence. Built by well-known local financier Joseph Howard as his primary residence, and most recently owned by the same family for almost 60 years, this classic estate is ready to welcome a new chapter of stewardship. The zoning is single-family, but the property carries a rare legacy entitlement as 7 units in a boarding house configuration, though the layout of the home is essentially unchanged. The entitlement allows for flexibility of use and adds underlying value to the property for now or in the future. This is a rare opportunity for a signature project in a premiere in-town location.
