This is a generous garden apartment in a classic brownstone on a very attractive and great, safe block in vibrant West Harlem. It is super convenient to 5 subways and easy to get anywhere in NYC. Come to Hamilton Heights with Alexander Hamilton's former home right nearby! Live like a native!
Only 5-minute walk to 1 train and 8 minute walk to A, B, C, D, trains and express is 2 stops (to midtown -Columbus Circle- you can be there in 20 min from your front door), 3 stops to Times Square! There is also a bus that stops on the corner leading directly to Museum Mile, Central Park, The Cloisters, and all over.
This historic home has been completely renovated and upgraded, with quality, classic rustic furnishings, lots of room for up to 6 people, and beautiful original details: decorative fireplace, wood floors, as well as exposed brick, all tiled kitchen and bath, premium fixtures. There are plenty of nice linens and towels, high-speed internet, new Apple TV with HBO, Netflix, Hulu and more, great central AC that you can control, and cozy radiant heat when it's cold. The washer dryer means maybe you can get away with a carry-on only!
In season, the peaceful, landscaped outdoor patio affords a wonderful respite and place to relax in between outings or for a nice coffee in the morning or a drink or meal in the evening. It also is like a second living room and provides a whole other place to sit and regroup. Even in colder months it is lovely to be able to have private outdoor space.
The apartment would be a luxury getaway for 2, with plenty of room to spread out, work, etc. The design of the apartment makes it perfect for families too, since there are 2 separate rooms and both have access to the bathroom and kitchen without entering the other. Direct access to the bathroom and kitchen from both rooms, with maximum privacy. Please contact us for more details about the space and the possibilities.
We are in a classic Harlem neighborhood, with beautifully detailed historic homes to view, great new restaurants, cafes and craft beer pubs right around the corner, easy access to all of Manhattan and the rest of the city. The subways are lively late at night so recommended even into the wee hours, and the parking is easier than in most of the city (we can guide you to free street parking on the block). Plenty of grocery shopping nearby. We live on the premises in the rest of the brownstone and can provide directions, restaurant advice, babysitting, catering, anything needed.
West Harlem is a magical neighborhood so convenient to the rest of Manhattan yet with a history and a feel all its own. We are 2 stops away from midtown, but on a beautiful block with trees and up on a hill, where you can feel the sea breeze from the Hudson, and can walk down to the river's edge for a picnic or get to a bike path that can take you all the way down to lower Manhattan.
Explore Hamilton Heights landmark district, Sugar Hill, Striver's Row. We are so close to many major teaching institutions such as Columbia University, City College, Barnard, Teacher's College, Jewish Theological Seminary, Manhattan School of Music, Columbia Presbyterian. We are very near some gorgeous sights such as The Cloisters, St. John the Divine, Fort Tryon Park, and to such landmarks as the Morris Jumel Mansion and the Apollo Theater.
It is a diverse and vibrant area with plenty of history and charm, a great vantage point from which to explore the whole city.
