A dream come true in the Heart of Harlem!
The opportunity to create your dream home in the heart of storied Harlem awaits on Riverside Drive. This incredible corner home sits on one of Harlem’s most beautiful and serene blocks at the corner of Riverside and 147th Street. Measuring 18 X 55 feet and offering 557 square feet of garden space, this corner home with Bay window is the perfect canvas for your new chapter.
This perfectly perched corner home, built in 1901, is an end of the block unit and is light-flooded offering three exposures and skylights! The elongated sunken yard offers an outdoor sanctuary as well as privacy. This unique home is ready to be updated for a modern lifestyle while offering the stately, graceful and character-filled opportunities that only a pre-war corner home can.
With 5,201 gross square feet to work with and an additional FAR of 4,086, this home is an opportunity that will speak to both an end user creating a single family or two family set up; or to a discerning developer looking to offer high end rentals or character-filled condos that are popular in any market. From the quaint tree-lined block to the bright and colorful pallet of the neighboring townhomes, the energy here is infectious and speaks to a lifestyle that can rival Striver’s Row or Hamilton Terrace!
This must-see 5 level home offers exposed brick, 17 feet of interior width, a gorgeous and over-sized Bay window with Riverside park views and a potential lush sunken garden space that feels as private as it does substantial. The wrought iron railing surrounding this stately home speaks to the era in which the home was constructed, and blends beautifully with the gorgeous benches and lights of Riverside Park.
The opportunity to build your single-family or multi-family dream space does not present itself this beautifully often. The location and bones of this fabulous home are absolute perfection. Bring your architect and designer and let this rare corner home become your next chapter.
