Description

Expansive, tranquil, brimming with character, bathed in light, a home full of charm, a 150sq ft terrace full of birdsong, and the lowest monthlies on the market this is a unique chance at brownstone living on the best block in Hamilton Heights. The first resale of the parlor and second floor since the building was converted in 2007, Unit 2 is one of only three homes in this classic Harlem brownstone, wisely developed with its historicity preserved in addition to exposed brick, original wood doors and two decorative fireplaces with original tiles, pier mirrors and detailing, you have the soaring ceilings that classically accompany parlor floor living, and the beaming sunshine of southern exposures in both bedrooms. The living and study give onto a north-facing terrace, and the surrounding buildings are low, so the cast of light from both east and west gives you beautiful sunrises and glowing sunsets on the generous terrace, which easily seats twelve guests or airily welcomes a party of one. The sprawling interior layout, over 1200 square feet (plus 150 square feet of private outdoor space), offers myriad possibilities for the arrangement of living/dining/study, ideally suits a work-from-home lifestyle, and makes hosting or nesting equally pleasurable. The expansive primary bedroom suite is king-sized and full of sun, with a fireplace, seating area, and deep, double-height closets. The queen-sized second bedroom or study features a brick fireplace, copious storage, and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The open kitchen amplifies counter space and includes a dishwasher; smart laundry closets at the entry hide a side-by-side washer and dryer. Two full bathrooms are finished in durable granite. Split systems provide heating and cooling. 517 West 149th is a self-managed condo with well-maintained common areas and remarkably low common charges and taxes. The building facade has been recently restored and the boiler replaced. Pets are welcome. No board package. Around the corner from Harlem Public, the Chipped Cup, two short blocks to Riverbank State Park, ideally located between the ABCD and 1 trains, with Maggie's Garden on the block, you'll be surrounded by old-growth trees and deeply rooted in community life. Reach out for your private showing.
