Splendid Brownstone in a 2 family home located in South Harlem with a beautiful terrace and lovely garden right by Central Park. An independent duplex on the top 2 floors that is occupied by the owner and a Triplex downstairs with a garden and a deck.
The house has a very shabby chic decoration, palatial but yet very homey and very practical layout; unusually big for a brownstone as it is 20 feet wide; most of them are 17 which makes a huge difference in volume. We are in the middle of the block so no noise from the avenues, it is very quiet.
As you enter the triplex, the parlour floor has a bedroom and a bathroom, then you arrive in an open floor with a the dinning room followed by a living room and a kitchen that leads to the terrace. Steps take you to the garden level with 1 bedroom on the street side, one bathroom and 2 bedrooms on the garden side one of which is the master bedroom with it?s en
suite large bathroom. The master bedroom leads to the garden. The lower level called the cellar is an entertaining room with a half bathroom, has a little window for ventilation.
The neighborhood is very family oriented, it changed a lot since the last 16 years we moved there. It has become a very hip area with lots of new restaurants and clubs. We have a brand new "whole food" supermarket that just opened on 124th street and Lenox that delivers. The express trains 2 and 3 are 2 min walk from the house, Central Park 5 min walk perfect for jogging.
This place is unique by its location, you are in the middle of the hip Central Harlem, less than 15 mins by subway from Times Square and yet in the backyard you can hear the birds and you can rest from a hectic visit around New York city. Express subways 2 & 3 within 2 minutes walk. the B & C (local) within 5 mins walk and the A and D express trains 8 mins walk. The subway is 24 hours a day. Green cabs and Yellow cabs can be hailed on every corner 24 h a day.
Parking options: alternate days parking on the street; and it is quiet easy to find parking in the vicinity.Listing Courtesy of Compass
