From Eyesore to $8.25M Townhouse on East 58th Street

New, 11 comments

407 East 58th Street was in rough shape and having trouble selling before Gavin Fries of Manhattan Restoration scooped it up last August for $3.3 million. Fries led a gut renovation that took the house from a decrepit three-family to a gleaming single-family townhouse, with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two powder rooms. Now, he has returned the house to the market with an asking price of $8.25 million.

Considering that the last Manhattan Restorations project we took note of included a bathtub in the master bedroom, this one seems fairly restrained. It features a good deal of whiteness and light-colored floors and furniture, and quite a bit of natural light from the now-glass rear facade.

And here are some more shots of what the house looks like now:
