Property Description

Experience the best of old and new living with this beautiful two-family brownstone on a tree-lined historic street...that was built less than 20 years ago. With only one owner and a sponsor who spared no expense, one could think they were walking around a new dev condo before realizing that it's 3,000+ SF over four stories...and has a private roof deck (heated, with a sauna!) as well as a heated front and back yard. The owner has maintained the building perfectly and implemented numerous upgrades including solar panels that chop the electric bill in half, Nest thermostats and WiFi, powered skylights with rain sensors, and surround sound throughout the building and outdoor spaces. Entering the owner's unit you start with tall ceilings and backlit crown molding in the living room before heading back to the South-facing kitchen/dining area that features top-notch appliances, a vented floating island-range, a double oven, and granite countertops with beautiful oak floors. From there you can head outside to a zen-like backyard that feels both open and private at the same time. The third floor has two large and well laid out bedrooms with customized walk-in California closets and a full bathroom, while the top floor rounds it out with the incredible master bedroom, master bathroom, and aforementioned roof deck/sauna/fire pit. Worried about interest rates? Well, this may be priced like a single-family but the first floor features an additional unit that you can rent and substantially lower your monthly payments to more than make up the difference! This is a special home that you have to walk around in order to comprehend just how much love and thought went into it. Feel free to reach out for to set up a showing while you can! Co-brokers welcome and encouraged.

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.
