This wonderful Higgs & Rooke designed Romanesque Revival style house was built in the 1890s by Dennis J. Dwyer and features high stoops, rock-faced ashlar and arched openings. The classic layout stoop entrance offers modern living with old-world townhouse charm. This townhouse offers extraordinary sunlight as it is surrounded by low buildings on all four exposures.

The Third Floor has 10-foot ceilings and consists of a grand library which connects to the Master Bedroom through a mahogany dressing room with an abundance of floor to ceiling closets. The South facing master bedroom has a renovated South facing windowed en-suite bath and vented washer/dryer on the floor.

Widely regarded as one of Manhattan’s most charming neighborhoods, it’s easy to see why living in Hamilton Heights holds appeal. Bordered by the Hudson River to the west and dotted by parks and green space, the area’s splendid, early 20th-century architecture transports to a world away from the big city’s relentless pace.
