Property Description

Formerly known as the 'The Art House,' this beautiful sun-drenched Manhattan Townhouse combines original detail with a SOHO loft aesthetic, integrating modern design while preserving the integrity of classic features. Click play on the video!

The 3500-square-foot home (the cellar is an extra 800 sqft) boasts an exquisite double-winged staircase that allows for a grand parlor floor entrance. The 3rd level hosts a massive stainless-steel open kitchen and a huge formal dining room. There are 4 large bedrooms, and a home office/den. All 5 bathrooms (2 full and 3 half) are brand spanking new.

Throughout the home, you will find original Victorian Cherry wood paneling, exposed brick, Longleaf Heart Pine wood flooring (all new), five original fireplaces, 11' high beamed ceilings, recessed lighting, 2 full kitchens, 2 sets of washer/dryers, and 2 skylights (that allow light to flow down to 3 floors).

The lovely garden level can be a separate apartment (has its own entrance), an artist's studio, or simply enjoyed as another part of this wonderful home. It leads to a large, sun-filled backyard allowing for a variety of gardening, playtime, and quiet relaxation at all times of the day. There is also space to create a roof-top seating area if so desired.

The full-sized cellar has 6' 6" high ceilings and can be used as a game room or purely for lots and lots of storage. There is a brand-new modern boiler providing gas-powered steam heat on every level - controlled by a thermostat. There is also new electrical wiring, outlets, and breakers - Plenty of Amperages! There is new plumbing and a new main drain water riser in the basement. There is a new gas meter (placed on the exterior).

This gem of a home is in a Manhattan neighborhood that's as trendy and vivacious as it gets in NYC. This part of West Harlem offers a great mix of cuisine, art, culture, history, nightlife, and loads of fun in Riverside Park and the Hudson River promenade. Lots of public transportation; #1, A, B, C, and D trains. All-level schools, wonderful boutiques, Museums, great bars, gyms, delicious restaurants (Restaurant row is just around the corner), and the amazing RiverBank State Park.

Call me, the listing agent, for all the correct information and then stroll down this tree-lined block to visit 532 West 148th St. (between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues).

Hamilton Heights | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Primarily a residential neighborhood, Hamilton Heights has a mix of brownstones, walk-ups and older apartment buildings, together with more luxurious apartment and condo buildings situated along Riverside Drive. Known for being a working class neighborhood in the past, now there are many artists, teachers and actors making their homes in Hamilton Heights.  

Hamilton Heights has a diverse population that prides itself on being a tight-knit community, one where neighbors know and respect one another, work together on issues that confront the community, support each other in difficult times, and spend time together socializing at block and seasonal parties.

Although there are many types of public transportation available, the area subway stops may require a bit of a walk, so you will need to plan for this time in your commute.

Hamilton Heights has a definite family-oriented vibe, and there are many playgrounds and activities for children. Additionally, you can find child daycare at reasonable prices. Riverbank State Park has many activities and recreational opportunities geared toward children. 

Although there are plentiful places to shop for groceries, everything from the bigger national chains to the neighborhood bodegas and delis, they are starting to show the impact of gentrification in the higher prices they are charging, especially for organic products.
