Built in 1899 by renowned architect Thom & Wilson, this stately 2-family Queen Anne brownstone is graciously positioned on a quintessential tree-lined townhouse block, located in the coveted Mount Morris Park Historic District of South Harlem.
Substantial FAR still available for development (consult your architect for options). Featuring an expansive 19 foot wide footprint with 4 stories plus cellar, 4 full bathrooms, this classic townhouse is the perfect restoration project or blank canvass to design your custom dream home, investment, or development opportunity.
Throughout the house, many original characteristics and pre-war detailing remain including stained glass windows, hardwood floors, fireplaces on each of the four floors, and extravagant door framing and crown mouldings, tying together the classic and elegant 19th-century characteristics that contribute to the expressive character of this historic home.
The Garden Floor currently houses the expansive eat in kitchen with a full bathroom, dining room, and living room, and leads to the private backyard which offers the prime opportunity to design your own discreet urban oasis.
Up one flight of stairs, the Parlor Floor, with towering 12-foot ceilings, intricate woodwork, and other original detailing, is currently laid out with two massive bedrooms, filled with natural light throughout. From the sidewalk, the stoop meets the ornate parlor floor entrance with classically designed double wood doors, with antique stained glass transoms above both doors and all South facing windows on this floor.
The Third Floor features beautiful South-facing bay windows, and the Fourth Floor is currently rented with a month-to-month tenant in place.
The choice is yours to maintain the existing layout or customize it as you desire.
