Situated on a peaceful street in the beautiful, fashionable Hamilton Heights / Sugar Hill Historic District, this elegant Romanesque Revival townhouse is part of a matching row of four designed by John P. Leo in 1897 and built that year by Charlotte Beyer. Standing on a 100-foot lot, the building is 18-feet 6-inches wide and 45-feet deep across its four floors, with an additional 10-foot 7-inch by 14-foot 9-inch two floor extension and 341 square foot cellar, giving a total of 4,015 square feet of premium quality interior space, and the extension is topped by a terrace. The beautiful limestone exterior features molded sills, carved panels, Tuscan columns and carved architrave, stained-glass transoms above the first-story windows, and a pressed metal cornice with a decorative frieze. The interior of this wonderful property is currently under conversion from a one-family to a two-family home. All Department of Buildings and Landmarks approvals, plumbing and electrical services are installed throughout the building, which will encompass a Grand Triplex on the upper three floors, and a duplex apartment below with private back yard, for a total of eight (8) bedrooms and five (5) bathrooms. The interior retains the original outstanding quality mahogany woodwork, staircases and mirrors, mahogany and walnut fireplaces, pocket doors, parquet floors and internal stained-glass windows. A bullhead and staircase have recently been added to the third floor to take advantage of rooftop living, providing a third level of outdoor space for the owners to enjoy.
This lovely home is located a few steps from fashionable Convent Avenue and the City College campus, and conveniently close to transportation options including the A/B/C/D and 1 subway lines and the M3, M5 and M100 bus lines. Shopping on Broadway is just a short walk away, and the area also features a vibrant caf, bar and restaurant and bar scene.
This property is delivered vacant with all paperwork provided, and all Department of Buildings and Landmarks approvals are available upon request.
