Evident throughout this thorough 2017 renovation is high level workmanship making this home as move in ready as they come, with plenty of opportunity to add your style!
The 16’ X 51’ footprint of the property is impressive the moment you step inside this majestic home. On one of Harlem’s storybook tree-lined blocks, the home blends into the serene landscape perfectly, only to be eclipsed by the quality layout and renovation waiting once inside. The main level of the home is open concept and offers soaring ceilings, a plentitude of natural light and incredible flow, perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining and lounging. A convenient powder room is also located on this main floor. Dine al fresco on the oversized balcony or put your green thumb to great use in the flawless garden area measuring 16’X38’! And the outdoor patio attached to the garden unit adds immense value.
The owner’s quadruplex (yes, 4 floors!) features gorgeous woodwork, original decorative fireplaces, well-placed brick wall exposures, hardwood floors throughout, and a modern chef’s kitchen. All 4 bedrooms in the owner’s quadruplex have their own ensuite bathroom. Each bedroom can accommodate king-size beds or two full-size beds and all have ample closet space, large windows and incredible natural light. Appointing rooms for fitness, office, guests or common areas, makes the home as multi-purpose as it is beautiful. The size of the stairwell landings give the home, and its hardwood stairs, a stately architectural detail. The hallway spaces are bright and offer the perfect canvas for your art and photography collections. The washer/dryer is smartly located on the third floor of the owner’s unit. Another huge highlight feature of the home is the 4th-floor bonus room that seamlessly connects to a balcony and an expansive, fenced in, roof space ready for your design to entertain outdoors with views of the city around.
The garden duplex unit, just like the quadruplex, features an updated kitchen and bathroom and gorgeous hardwood floors. Elegant French doors open up into the bedroom, with direct access to the back patio and yard. Adding to the appeal, the bonus basement level recreation space offers flexible options for expanded living. It is also equipped with its own in-unit W/D and additional half-bath. The layout is thoughtful and spacious in this rare two-level garden unit.
