My Notes

A five-story townhouse, built in1893, on Harlems most coveted Landmark block, this charming historic home offers elegant original details with the finest luxury amenities. Hamilton Terrace is the most sought-out and gracious street in all of Harlem. This fully renovated 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath, which has housed only 3 families in its 120 years, offers a distinct sense of grandeur, with wonderful preserved details including hardwood floors, stately wood-frame windows, elaborate fireplace mantles, beautiful Arts and Crafts staircase, stained-glass skylights, graceful pocket doors and tasteful chandeliers.A dramatic winding stoop leads up to the beautiful beveled-glass, double entry, which opens to the entry parlor, with walk-in closet. A few mores steps takes you to the dreamy, open chefs kitchen complete with stylish maple cabinets, Brazilian granite countertops, two sinks (one porcelain double with garbage disposal and a stainless-steel farm sink in the large center island), and features state-of-the-art, stainless-steel appliances including a Miele dishwasher, GE Monogram Refrigerator and Ice Maker, DCS 6 Burner Stove with Griddle and Hood, and Dacor Double Convection Wall Ovens. Off the kitchen, a breezy sunroom serves as a bright and spacious dining area, which opens onto a sprawling 700-square-foot patio with a magnificent and very private urban respite, with morning sun and Eastern skylines, shaded by a towering Oak tree. There is also powder room on this level.Dual staircases lead up to the beautiful parlor level, with 12-foot ceilings, with a formal living room, which includes a gorgeous mantel with beveled-glass doors, a center parlor, the formal dining room with a beautiful hand-carved walnut mantel and adjacent butlers pantry, that features original oak china cabinets, hand-hammered copper sink with white soapstone counter and wine cellar. Perfect for entertaining. On the third floor is the master suite and second bedroom connected by a large dressing area with original vanity and sink, and several closets, divided by a pocket door. The master bath has beautiful Villeroy & Boch tiles by artist, Maggy Champsaur, a luxurious claw foot tub, and European shower. The fourth floor has two more large bedrooms, an home office, a full bath, and upstairs laundry with Kenmore H/E, front-load washer and dryer for your convenience. There is abundant closet space throughout the home. The finished basement includes full bathroom and can be used as a guest suite or comfy den, with more storage.The houses infrastructure was updated by the current owner in the 1990s, and new double-paned thermally insulated, Landmark Preservation Commission approved windows were installed in the front of the house, and a new roof was recently added.The most elite address in Harlem for more than a century, Hamilton Terrace is a peaceful cul-de-sac-like street that runs for just three tree-lined blocks. Perfect for families. One of the highlights of the year is the annual block party, HEY NEIGHBOR DAY, sponsored by The Hamilton Terrace Block Association. Hamilton Terrace is directly across from THE GRANGE (formerly Alexander Hamiltons summer home), a striking Federal-style mansion once home to the founding father. Now a national monument, the Grange fronts the rolling green landscape of the 27-acre St. Nicholas Park. A vibrant neighborhood, where many new restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques are establishing themselves. The subway is just around the corner, where the A/D express trains are only 8 minutes to Columbus Circle, and the B/C run local. Also, the #1 train is close proximity.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Hamilton Heights home values will rise 5.8% next year, compared to a 3.4% rise for New York as a whole. Among Hamilton Heights homes, this home is 455.3% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 7.3% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Hamilton Heights, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 237.6% greater than in New York, and 19.6% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Hamilton Heights home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York.
