Year Built
A picture-perfect two-family townhome in the famed Strivers Row neighborhood, this 19 ft-wide home designed by architect John Hauser sits on a quintessential brownstone street in the heart of Harlem where culture thrives. Enjoy quick access to incredible cuisine, museums, the storied Apollo Theater, St. Nicholas Park, CUNY, and five trains just a block away. The home's original 19th century details have been beautifully restored and the home lovingly updated to meet modern needs. Both units are currently leased, presenting an excellent opportunity for rental income. MAIN RESIDENCE: The main residence on the upper three floors combines exceptional craftmanship, modern conveniences, and three private outdoor spaces to offer an oasis of comfort and refinement. Upon entering the foyer, the eye is immediately struck by the gorgeous woodwork, the intricate filigree-style motifs, rich paneling, and elegant moldings and balustrades. Echoed in the connected living room and parlor, also note the lovely herringbone hardwood floors with inlaid accents and the stunning, one-of-a-kind fireplace surround. Through the parlor pocket doors await a large open dining room and gourmet kitchen with a decorative fireplace, private decked terrace, and stairs to the garden and courtyard which are equipped with electricity and water. To the rear of the kitchen is the laundry and a full bathroom. The third floor offers two generously sized bedrooms with decorative fireplaces and incredible walk-in dressing areas. The front bedroom includes a large bay window while the rear bedroom features an en suite bath with shower and charming clawfoot tub. The fourth floor features skylights, a private terrace, full bathroom, and two spacious bedrooms.
