Completed in 1890 for one of Manhattan’s most distinctive townhouse rows, this Tudor Revival home has kept the majority of its original interior detail intact. Standing 20’ wide and rising five stories from garden-to-roof, 327 Convent Avenue is ready to be renovated into the single or two family house of your dreams.
The uncommonly deep and lushly landscaped front garden creates a quiet transition from sidewalk to broad, quarter-turn stoop. The Parlor floor includes living room, formal dining, kitchenette, full bathroom, and central gallery at the foot of an impressive sky-lit stair. 11-foot ceilings, parquet floors with mahogany inlay, foldaway window shutters, and massive pocket doors throughout. On the garden level, a stand-alone apartment opens to the sunny backyard, with mechanicals and laundry room adjacent to the private under-stoop entrance.
The impressive inheritance of original details continues on the third floor with woodwork window casings and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. The fourth floor includes three bedrooms, kitchen, full bathroom, and the topmost of the home’s six fireplaces. The fifth floor “sunroom” is currently a bright bedroom suite that has the potential to open to a stunning future roof deck.
Designed by Adolph Houk with a striking Tudor-style pitched roofline and half-timbered façade, the residence stands within the Hamilton Heights Historic District; around the corner from the Hamilton Grange mansion and City College’s fairytale gothic stonework. The leafy, hill-top neighborhood has a relaxed, almost “college-town” feel, packed with energetic restaurants, cafes, and convenient amenities.
With its impressive size, extensive 19th century detail, and unexpectedly contemporary rooftop “penthouse”, no. 327 offers a rare opportunity to create a timeless 21st Century home high in historic Manhattan.
