Shopping for the holidays can get complicated. How do you pick just the right gift for someone? In a perfect world we could buy our loved ones gifts they could turn into whatever they wanted. Well, we’re not going to be doing your Christmas shopping this year, but we do have a listing that’s ready for its new owner to add his or her own personal stamp. We’re talking a fully gutted townhome in Murray Hill with all the renovation plans and permits already set and approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission and the Department of Buildings. So all you have to do is sit back and let your imagination do the rest.
The 2,900-square-foot building offers 20-foot by 25-foot dimensions on five levels. Each floor benefits from a fireplace and streams of natural light flowing in from windows lining the front and rear of the building.
An approved floor plan showcases the townhome as a three-bedroom dwelling with a full-floor master, and plenty of space for entertaining and living. They also threw in a roof terrace with a solarium, where you can quote Sleepless in Seattle or An Affair to Remember while enjoying views of the Empire State Building. Meanwhile, virtually staged photos exhibit a luxury residence full of potential.
130 East 38th Street is an historic townhome built in 1910. It’s located right off Park Avenue in the Murray Hill neighborhood, near museums, shops, restaurants and Bryant Park. If you’re interested in turning this into your dream home, grab your architect and your $3.5 million quickly. Acclaimed actress Jessica Chastain was recently seen eyeing the space with her Italian fashion executive boyfriend Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo.
