307 West 121st Street is being offered for sale for the first time in over 36 years. Rich in history, this building is an incredible residential conversion of a late 19th Century Firehouse. Currently the building serves as a 4-unit residential rental building with basement and roof, with four loft style, full-floor, free-market apartments.

Enriched with history, many of the pre-war and exquisite unique details have been preserved as well as the exterior yellow brick, limestone accents, terra cotta pink trims and original cast iron Fire House lettering above the entrance. Standing at almost 150 years old, the offering of 307 West 121st Street brings a special opportunity to own a part of New York City's history.

307 West 121st Street became the location of the New York Fire Patrol No. 5 in 1892 - the oldest paid fire service in the United States, and was the last insurance-funded fire salvage corps in the country when it was disbanded in 2006. Fire Patrol House No. 5 is one only a limited number of Firehouses in Manhattan, and makes for a truly one of kind income property or home.

While many of the prewar and exquisite original details remain; each of the four full-floor apartments measure modestly at approximately 1,850 square feet. The ceiling heights in each apartment range between 12-16+ feet and each apartment offers beautiful Southern and Northern exposures, abundant sunlight from the oversized dramatic windows and ample storage.Each apartment also comes with a private keyed storage room in the basement.

The buildings easily accessible basement offers the advantage of primarily usable square footage. Currently housing in-building laundry and electrical units, this space could easily be transformed into a gym or lounge. The equally accessible, pristine roof offers beautiful tree top city views to the south and airy views to the north.

As a residential rental building, 307 West 121st Street offers an easy transition for new ownership as a cash flow positive investment property. Alternatively, with the appropriate due diligence brought about by prospective purchasers and approvals through the New York City Department of Buildings, this building also has possible potential to be converted to a private residence, though many opportunities await. Current expenses and cash flow positive rent roll are available upon request.
