As one of the oldest surviving homes in all of Manhattan, historic 57 Sullivan Street provides a rare and unique opportunity to acquire a gorgeous three-family investment property or to convert the 21-foot-wide building to a spectacular single-family residence.

Currently configured as an owner's duplex with English basement plus two expansive one-bedroom units on the upper floors, the building has been beautifully maintained over the years and features both historic details and modern updates. Arrive at the duplex through iconic arched doorway to find an open-plan great room filled with sunlight and charm. The wood-burning brick fireplace and ceiling medallion nod to a bygone era, but the open kitchen is ready for the demands of a modern chef with abundant cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The expansive bedroom is placed at the rear of the home and features another brick fireplace, two large closets, delightful garden views and a door leading to the fairy tale outdoor space. There's extra closet space and a full bathroom on this level, while downstairs, the English basement features another full bathroom. Lined by stone walls and flooring, this cozy lower level includes an oversized media room, plus a large den, office and storage.

The large upper level apartments are equal in size and finish to the owner's duplex upper level, with open plan living, updated kitchens, large bedrooms, fireplaces and exposed brick. The top-floor unit is illuminated by large skylights. Currently occupied, these units can be delivered vacant. An extremely low tax rate adds to the building's abundant appeal.

A stellar example of Federal style architecture, 57 Sullivan Street boasts a handsome Flemish-bond brick facade with incised brownstone detailing. Built in 1816, the building's occupants have reflected the composition of its Lower Manhattan neighborhood throughout its 200-year history — from its initial tradesman single-family residents to its later conversion to multi-family use by immigrant families. Set on the border of SoHo and Hudson Square, within easy reach of Greenwich Village and Tribeca, today the home is surrounded by an eclectic mix of historic and new construction buildings housing both established local business and inventive new restaurants. Soho's famed shopping districts are minutes away, and nearby fine dining options include David Burke Kitchen and Cipriani Downtown.

Transportation from this accessible neighborhood is excellent with 1, A/C/E, N/Q/R/Q, J/Z and 6 trains all close by.
