AVAILABLE! Stately perched on one of the most charming brownstone blocks in Harlem, this historic home is awash with possibilities. At 18 ft. x 99.9 ft. with approximately 5,400 sq. ft. over 5+ floors, there are endless conversion options: design a gorgeous mansion, multi-family home, or build an income producing property. With another 1,000 sq. ft. under FAR, the sky is the limit.

Currently set up as 10 SRO units with six bathrooms (see existing floor plan), this expansive building has nicely preserved the remarkable architectural style of The Harlem Renaissance era. Unique pre-war details throughout the property include: 10 fireplaces with mirrored mantles, handcrafted natural wood trimming, and antique claw foot tubs, high ceilings, custom moldings, original pocket and French doors, and vintage doorknobs. A spacious and newly finished English basement offers a bathroom and direct access to the backyard. A private driveway offers exclusive space for parking within the historically known private courtyard alleyways behind the residences in the district. There is parking space for 1-2 vehicles and the backyard also offers suitable space to build a covered garage. The finished rooftop offers panoramic views of Central Harlem and it would make the ideal urban garden or sun deck.

Since the Harlem Renaissance, these gorgeous blocks of the neighborhood have been abuzz with art and culture. This property has such a rich and fascinating history. The previous owner, Mae V. Roberts, was a fashion designer who made history in the famous book written by Lois Alexander titled: BIacks in the History of Fashion. She was also the niece of the founding father of Black History Month and distinguished book author, Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Renowned Harlem’s Renaissance Period photographer James Van Der Zee featured this attractive building in his celebrated work. Today Central Harlem is known for its roster of famous residents including Neil Patrick Harris, Maya Angelou and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who was born here.

Located on a beautiful tree-lined brownstone street in Central Harlem, this unique property is near City College, Columbia University Expansion area, and just two blocks from #2, #3, A,C, and B train lines.

Harlem

Harlem

Uptown, from 110th Street to the Harlem River, from 5th Avenue to St. Nicholas Avenues.

Harlem is enjoying a new renaissance — an explosion of new 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. Beautiful architectural enclaves feature townhouses — many with multiple fireplaces and gorgeous molding — designed by the famous firm of McKim, Mead and White.
