It’s good to have options. Take this former “Guiding Light” actress‘s 4,000 square-foot early Greek revival townhouse on James Phelan Row, for instance. It can either be delivered to you as three separate apartments with a potential rental income of $20,000 per month, or you can convert it into one giant dream home. Either way you’ve got three large outdoor spaces waiting for you during the warmer months, and eight wood-burning fireplaces ready to warm you during New York’s fierce winters. And all these options can be right at your feet for $9.5 million.
The three-bedroom garden duplex features an open kitchen with wide plank wood floors. The kitchen overlooks a spacious planted backyard with a flagstone patio. This romantic escape boasts walls of ivy and plenty of room for lounging and entertaining.
The second-floor apartment has two bedrooms and possibly the most enviable of all the home’s outdoor spaces. Your friends are going to love hanging out on this balcony, which is large enough to accommodate a sizable gathering. Meanwhile you’re going to love decorating it, as it can handle a good deal of furniture.
Finally, there’s a top-floor duplex with three bedrooms, including a double-height lofted bedroom with a skylight. This bedroom has its own north-facing roof terrace where you can entertain friends or just hang out with your potted plants. Additional cool features in the home include stained glass, and oversized windows, and walk-in closets.
426 West 22nd Street is a 19-foot-wide town home with a brick facade, built around 1843. It currently belongs to Emmy award-winning soap opera actress Ellen Parker, who is best known for a long run as Maureen Reardon Bauer on “Guiding Light.” The West Chelsea home resides on a beautiful tree-lined block near Clement Clarke Moore Park. It’s also just a stone’s throw away from the High Line and the art gallery district, with neighborhood favorites like Chelsea Piers, the Chelsea Market, Hudson River Park, and high-end restaurants and shops close by.
