Condo in a townhouse! This is a spectacular garden duplex in the Strivers' district of West Harlem. The lower level has a beautiful great room with exposed brick, decorative fireplace, powder room and large 16x16 cook's kitchen. From the kitchen there is a 300 square-foot planted south garden with a shed for gardening tools. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms with generous closets, a washer dryer and spacious full bathroom with both a stall shower and Jacuzzi tub. This home has oak flooring throughout, and a multi-zone split heating and air-conditioning system.
This house is very unique in that it is semi-detached and has a partially recessed front facade yielding four exposures. The front bedroom has a west window with an architecturally pleasing view down this historic block and the living room has an east window which gives this space a lot more light than comparable homes. In addition to the garden, there is a large balcony off of the master bedroom overlooking the garden. You will love the amenities of this space because in addition to all of the outdoor spaces, there is a private storage room in the basement private to this unit and it measures 319 square feet!
West 138th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Edgecombe Avenue is one of the most beautiful blocks in the city. It rests just outside the St. Nicholas Historic District (Striver's Row). Within a short walk of this historic house is St. Nicholas Park, Hamilton Grange, many shops, restaurants and easy access to transportation.
