One of eleven identical houses on the block originally designed by John Sexton in 1872 for a developer named Christopher Keyes. This house was substantially altered in 1910 by R.H Robertson, who added a Neo-Georgian facade with a limestone base and Juliette balcony. The detailed cornice and windows surround the Mansard roof and copper clad dormer windows. R.H Robertson designed many other prominent homes and public buildings in New York City including the Park Row Building at 15 Park Row, which was the tallest building in the world when completed in 1899.
This is a rare opportunity to both live and get income, especially as a live-work opportunity.
