TriBeCa, Chelsea, Gramercy and the Financial District continue to lure homebuyers south of Midtown Manhattan.
A garden duplex in Gramercy, directly across from Stuyvesant Park at 237 East 17th Street between Second and Third Avenues, offers nearly 2,000 square feet of indoor living space, and 500 square feet of private outdoor patio space on the ground floor. Besides the fully finished basement, it features a central air system, three full bathrooms and a laundry room with a utility sink -- all unusual features for an 1850 townhome. The previous owners used the bottom floor as a recoding studio, while the current owners use it as a playroom and a media room with a projection television.
It lives like a little house just a short stroll from Union Square and the farmer's market." said Ivana Tagliamonte, associate broker with Halstead Property. "Residents appreciate the low density townhomes on both sides of the street. There is a real sense of community here, and everyone seems to know each other."
