A townhouse at 165 East 71st Street, located between Lexington and Third Avenues in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood, was sold in an all-cash transaction valued at $5,900,000.

The five-story building contains approximately 4,500 square feet and sits on a 17’ x 102’ lot.  It is currently configured as a multifamily property, with a duplex apartment with garden on the first and second floors, and three floor-through rental apartments above.  It benefits from a new boiler, new roof, and approximately 25’ rear garden on the ground level.  The sale price equates to approximately $1,311 per square foot.

Ira Lifshutz, a local investor who continues to be an active buyer of NYC real estate, purchased the property.

“This five-unit property contained a duplex and three floor-through apartments.  This is a popular block and there was a great deal of interest from both local and international buyers,” said Massey Knakal Vice President of Sales Guthrie Garvin, who exclusively handled this transaction with CEO Paul J. Massey, Jr.
