This is a beautiful brownstone home in the city. We lovingly rebuilt it as a family home. It is MUCH larger than most NY homes in the city.
We do have a strict no smoking policy and require quiet evening activities. This is a spacious, comfortable home in which to relax and enjoy all that NY has to offer. Incomparable space and comfort and priced for affordability.
The first floor has a gleaming, fully equipped kitchen w/washer and dryer, an expansive living room with large flat-screen television and a dining room with a wide table that seats 8 plus diners. There are four large and comfortable bedrooms. On the third floor one bedroom has a king sized bed, one has a full/double bed and one has two full/double beds with Japanese style frames. The Master bedroom on the second floor has a queen bed and large en suite bathroom - soaking tub, heat lamp and separate toilet. There are 2 full bathrooms and one half bathroom, one on each floor. The office has a large desk and two couches that fold out to full/double beds for more options. There is also a comfortable reading nook on the second floor with a single foldout. All linens provided.
There is a lovely shared, south facing perennial garden. Perfect for coffee in the am, an outdoor play space for children, or dinner at twilight.
Please, no smoking indoors and no loud parties. This is not a hotel but a private residence in a neighborhood with families.
It is easy to get everywhere. MTA/Subway - two blocks from the 2/3, five blocks from the A/B/C/D, three stops from mid-town - 18min - and UBER anywhere.
Metro-North Commuter train - 125th Street station is five blocks away, 45 min to Connecticut.
Local Dining has boomed in the last few years with some real standouts - Red Rooster, Barawine, Settepani, BVLD, Corner Social, Chocolat, Cheri, Amy Ruth's, The Cecil, Lido, Il Cafe, Streetbird, Shrine, Moca, Serengeti Tea Shop and many more, all fantastic and just steps away!
We are close to Columbia University, Barnard College, Teachers College and City College. There are many local attractions like Hamilton Grange, Metropolitan Museum of Art -83rd & 5th, Guggenheim -5th Ave & 89th, The Frick -1 East 70th, Studio Museum in Harlem 144 West 125th, Whitney Museum of Art- 75th & Madison, The Albert Maysles Cinema on Lenox and 127th, The Jewish Museum – 92nd & 5th, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum 2 E 91st St, The Cloisters -upper Manhattan, Natural History Museum & Rose Center of Earth and Space (Hayden Planetarium)- 81st & Central Park West, American Museum of Folk Art -Columbus Ave & 66th, Museum of Modern Art- 53rd & 5th, 911 Memorial and Liberty Park, The Tenement Museum-Orchard and Delancey and many other sights to see.

About the owner: My husband, three children and I love this city. I went to college here, my husband and I lived here before and after we had children. We built this home for our family before my husband's work took us out of state but we make it back as often as we can. It is larger than most homes in the city and has a rare piece of outdoor space that is great for kids. We know it is expensive to travel and stay in the city and have priced this to make it available for families in particular. NYC is full of great museums and adventures.
Why the Owner Chose Upper Manhattan, New York, NY, USA:
Harlem is a bustling center. Here in this diverse community we have a large beautiful home- from high ceilings to a tranquil garden, and on the train everything is close. Just what we wanted - couldn't resist. Perfect for our family.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Amazing amount of space for Manhattan and the garden is like a little piece of zen in the city that never sleeps.
