This turn-of-the-century, 5-story plus cellar townhouse is a truly exceptional property. Located in prime Harlem on a gorgeous brownstone block, the 4,387 square foot residence is 19' wide and 52' deep, built on a 19' by 100' lot. The townhouse boasts 6 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, a gracious front courtyard, a lovely garden, and ample additional interior space on the garden level that could be used for a multitude of purposes. All of the rooms are graciously proportioned, and the grand parlor floor offers soaring ceilings. The residence is further enhanced by 6 fireplaces, hardwood floors, and excellent natural light. Built as a single family residence, this townhome now functions as offices for Hale House Center, a nationally-recognized non-profit organization dedicated to building better futures for the youth of New York City. The organization was founded in 1969 by Clara McBride Hale, or Mother Hale as she was known. Mother Hale was a pioneer in self-help efforts and came to symbolize the untapped potential of disadvantaged groups taking care of their own. She eventually won international recognition for her efforts, and President Ronald Reagan saluted her as an "American heroine" in his 1985 State of the Union address.

Uptown, from 110th Street to 155th Street, from the East River to Manhattan and St. Nicholas Avenues.
Harlem is enjoying a new renaissance — an explosion of development. Harlem residents are also finding a new range of shopping options, as 125th Street, once known for its independent bazaars that offered anything and everything for sale, is now also home to uptown sites for chains such as Disney, HandM, and Old Navy. There’s easy access to retail from such beautiful architectural enclaves as Harlem’s “Striver’s Row,” which features townhouses — many with multiple fireplaces and to-die-for molding — designed by the famous firm of McKim, Mead and White.
