46 East 65th Street: An Elevator Townhouse with a Storied Past
The past meets the present in this stately 6-story, elevator-serviced, 10,253 square foot townhouse. Delivered vacant, the sprawling south and north facing townhome is comprised of six stories, excluding the basement, and is further enhanced by three large terraces and multiple balconies. The property is built 20' wide x 98' deep x 65' high on a 20' x 100'-5" lot and is currently divided into four units: a prestigious art gallery on the ground level, followed by a grand owner's duplex, followed by a spacious floor-through apartment, followed by a luxurious penthouse duplex. The property could remain a highly lucrative income-producing property or easily transform back into a single-family residence.
46 East 65th Street is unequivocally one of Manhattan's finest, most prestigious addresses. You are perfectly situated on 65th Street between Park Avenue and Madison Avenue on a pristine tree-lined block of equally grand townhouses. Just steps from Central Park and the iconic fashion houses of Madison Avenue, the entire block was designated a Historic District by the Landmarks Preservation Commission for the architectural beauty and historical significance of the townhouses that comprise it.
46 East 65th Street was erected in 1916 and previously served as the residence of Franz Waxman, a legendary composer best known for his work in Hollywood cinema. His film scores include The Bride of Frankenstein, Rebecca, Sunset Boulevard, A Place in the Sun, Stalag 17, Rear Window, Peyton Place, The Nun's Story, and Taras Bulba. He received twelve Academy Award nominations and won two Oscars as well as a Golden Globe Award.
