Youve got to see it to believe it. Located in the middle of one of the most acclaimed blocks in Harlem. Famous for its mature large oak trees and completely contiguous brownstone streetscape, everyone who visits this block knows that it is one of the best-kept secrets in all of Hamilton Heights.
This house is a total of 5,290 interior square feet comprising of two separate units: an upper triplex and a lower duplex. Literally two houses in one. This brownstone is enormous! There are six (6) private outdoor areas including a full roof deck, a terrace off of the parlor floor, two private balconies, a garden, and a lower level courtyard.
Having undergone a complete renovation and restoration from head-to-toe, no bricks, beams, or surfaces were left untouched. Intricate wood details from the late 1800's are abundant. They have all been stripped, hand-sanded, and re-stained to look brand new. Fireplace mantels in nearly every room, the original banister in perfect condition, a large mahogany pier mirror eloquently stands guard at the front entrance. This is literally one of the most fantastic renovations I have ever seen. This home is the perfect blend of turn-of-the-century character combined with all of the modern amenities you could ever want. It is a transitional masterpiece built by one of the best brownstone developers in NYC.
The upper triplex alone is 3,174 SF including the parlor, third, and fourth floors with a private roof deck. You enter the parlor level which is incredibly lofty, wide, and deep. In fact, there are no partitions on the parlor floor from the front to the back, and a full depth of 68 feet can be seen when you enter the house. The living room, powder room, and dining room are all generously proportioned for very comfortable living. Inside the kitchen, we have included an extra large Sub Zero refrigerator, professional-grade & vented Wolf gas range, Bloomberg dishwasher, built-in warmer drawer and a huge island with a half dozen under cabinets and seven feet of clear counter space.
From the kitchen, you can open up the sliding door and head out to the private wrap-around terrace which measures approximately 250 SF and has a steel spiral staircase that leads to the back garden.
On the third floor, you have two half-floor suites and an enormous laundry room in the center of the house. The front suite is the full width of the house with a decorative fireplace mantel, an enormous closet, and a full marble bathroom. The back suite has another decorative fireplace, another closet, a private balcony, and a connected bonus windowed room in the extension with restored French doors separating it from the main bedroom space.
Your master suite occupies the entire fourth floor of the house and includes a back bedroom with en-suite master bathroom and is seamlessly connected to the front room of the house which you can use as an office or study, and has an additional full bathroom. The master bathroom in the back of the house looks like it has come straight from a page of Architectural Digest. Marble from top to bottom, and tastefully completed with custom tile work, it will be sure to impress anyone that visits. From the master suite, take the big staircase up to the fifth level of the building, which houses an oversized bulkhead with large storage closet and opens up to your full roof terrace with magnificent views of City College, and the village of Hamilton Heights.
The 2,116 SF duplex is a house unto itself and comprises of a generous two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout with access to the beautiful fenced-in and private backyard and includes a beautiful tree for additional privacy and shade. The finished basement level is completely renovated top-to-bottom, is bright, has great airflow and a clear 8 foot ceilings. Recessed LED lighting, separate heating and cooling, a wine cellar, and a sliding glass door that opens up to a private outdoor walled-in courtyard are all features of the lower level space.
