About this property
Formerly known as the 'The Art House,' this beautiful sun-drenched Manhattan Townhouse combines original detail with a SOHO loft aesthetic, integrating modern design while preserving the integrity of classic features. The 3500-square-foot home boasts an exquisite double-winged staircase that allows for a grand parlor floor entrance. The 3rd level hosts a massive stainless-steel open kitchen and a huge formal dining room. There are 4 large Bedrooms, and a home office/den. All 5 bathrooms (2 full and 3 half) are brand spanking new. Throughout the home you will find Victorian Cherry wood paneling, exposed brick, Longleaf Heart Pine wood flooring, five original fireplaces, and 11' high beamed ceilings, recessed lighting, 2 skylights, 2 full kitchens, and 2 sets of washer/dryers. The lovely garden level can be a separate apartment, an artist's studio, or simply enjoyed as another part of this wonderful home. It leads to a large, sun-filled backyard allowing for a variety of gardening, playtime, and quiet relaxation at all times of the day. There is also space to create a roof-top seating area if so desired. The full-sized cellar has 6-foot-high ceilings and can be used as a game room or purely for lots and lots of storage. There is a brand-new modern boiler providing gas powered steam heat on every level - controlled by a thermostat. There is also new electrical wiring, outlets, and breakers - Plenty of Amperage! There is new plumbing and a new main drain water riser in the basement. There is a new gas meter (placed on the exterior). This gem of a home is in a Manhattan neighborhood that's as trendy and vivacious as it gets in NYC. This part of West Harlem offers a great mix of cuisine, art, culture, history, nightlife, and loads of fun in Riverside Park and the Hudson River promenade. Lots of public transportation; #1, A, B, C, and D trains. All-level schools, wonderful boutiques, Museums, great bars, delicious restaurants (Restaurant row is just around the corner), many major gyms, and the amazing RiverBank State Park.
