Harlem (Central) house description

You will have a memorable stay in this elegant, huge (6000 sq. ft.)Harlem, NYC mansion. Every conceivable amenity available including HD flat screen TV, elevator, garden (with dining and lounging furniture, gas grill), gorgeous rooms, full designer kitchen access (GE Monogram appliances, farmhouse sink, quartz counters, copper ceilings), museum-quality furniture and contemporary artwork, fully air-conditioned and heated. Each of 5 bedrooms has its own elegant private bath with sink, toilet and shower and/or soaking tub. Billiards room, media room with huge flat screen and full laundry room.

The home is a landmarked brownstone built in the late 1880's and gut-renovated to Architectural Digest standards in 2006-07. It is located in the landmarked Mt. Morris Park section of trendy Harlem, at the corner of Mount Morris Park West (a/k/a 5th Avenue) and West 123rd Street. Convenient to the 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 trains, 5th Avenue bus lines and easy ability to hail a cab anytime of the day or night. Safe, free on-street parking. The neighborhood is very safe and very pleasant and boasts numerous beautiful brownstones, churches, parks and restaurants. Renters have access to the entire home (5 floors including exclusive use of elevator, LR, DR, kitchen, billiards, media and laundry rooms, garden, 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half-baths, sleeping up to 12 guests). Rentals are for the entire home and are for a minimum of 3 nights at $1000.00
'VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Our property is a single family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor this summer, that prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). Our home is not covered by this law because it is a single family unit, and therefore our rentals are completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting from us will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.'

                                  Why the Owner Chose Harlem (Central):
                                  We love Harlem and it is so convenient to all the sites in New York. We are only two blocks to the express train to Times Square. It takes less than twenty minutes to get to Times Square. All tourist attractions are convenient and there is lots to do right here in the neighborhood. It is safe, historic and family oriented. The neighbors are wonderful. It is located in the heart of the Mount Morris Park historic district, very quiet and neighborly. People say hello to each other on the street, a unique feature for New York.

                                  The bedrooms are very private, quiet and large. Church bells ring on the weekends, birds sing in the garden. The kitchen is state of the art. There is a piano.
