Property Description

A Wonderful Townhouse Opportunity

This home has loads of original details and character. A gem in the rough, it’s been in the same family for more than 100 years.

Just two blocks east of St. Nicholas Park, the two-family townhouse has a new roof and three new skylights, and new double-pane windows in the upper unit. The restored stoop and cast-iron metal stair railings was done by stone artisans.

Original features include two huge mirrors, two 3-inch-thick pocket doors, and a decorative wood and tile fireplace on the parlor floor. There’s brass hardware, multiple marble fireplaces (4); hardwood floors, and picture frame and Victorian moldings everywhere you look.

There’re soaring 12 FT ceilings throughout, and a winding staircase that separates the front and the rear living areas. Together, these valuable design elements add character and charm to this wonderful brownstone.

The main central skylight spreads sunlight from 4th floor through the stairwell. The other two skylights brighten the top floor. The sun drenched south facing floor-through garden apartment has original pantry, built-in storage and icebox area, and full kitchen leading to a large private outdoor space.

With over 2000 SQFT in Air Rights and high ceiling in the basement, you can make this townhouse your very own custom home!

SRO Sold "As Is" and delivered vacant. The Owner has a Certificate of No Harassment.

This quite clean well-kept block has a strong association: Neighbors United of West 132nd Street Block Association.

Near B, C, 2 and 3 Subway. Centrally located near many restaurants and stores: Mikey's Ice Cream, Taste of Seafood, Lighthouse, Harlem Hops Craft Beer Bar, Renaissance Harlem, Yatenga French Bistro and Bar, and Whole Foods Market.

Harlem | Manhattan

Quick Profile

The neighborhood called West Harlem by the locals is known as Manhattanville to neighborhood newcomers. The area is culturally diverse and might be considered a microcosm of the city as a whole. 

Columbia University has recently expanded into the area, which is attracting student residents from all over the world. Together with students from the City College of New York and young professionals fleeing higher prices in other neighborhoods, this influx of younger residents has brought with it more restaurants and bars on W 125th Street to serve this clientele. There are also new ventures, like a rock-climbing gym, to cater to the interests of these students and young professionals. At the same time, there are many small, family-owned shops and restaurants that have been anchors of the neighborhood for multiple generations.

The area has been through a housing upgrade, as older properties have been renovated and abandoned properties have been razed to make room for new development. There are still reasonably priced apartments available. Young professionals are finding that there is a certain cachet to living in West Harlem. It provides a convenient commute to the city and all of its amenities, while providing a sense of escape at the end of a long work day.

While rentals are popular with the student population, the young professionals are delighted to find pre-war brownstones, pre-war co-ops (including some income-capped HDFCs for lower- and middle-income buyers), and post-war condos that they can afford, although prices are rising. Some new low-rise developments, sporting virtual doormen and desired amenities, are cropping up.
