A big renovation left this four-story townhouse at 310 West 137th Street, in Harlem, feeling sleek and modern. Configured as a triplex over a rental apartment on the garden floor, the house boasts an open living plan, a new kitchen decked out with marble finishes, and also a glass terrace that looks out over a large backyard garden. While the inside feels brand spanking new, the exterior still boasts a historic facade. The property is now up for grabs, priced just under $3 million.
The parlor floor, which is the first floor of the owner’s triplex, holds a living room which flows right into the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen–which then leads out to the glass terrace–was finished in a white Scavolini marble. Hardwood floors line the entire space.
The second floor holds the bright master bedroom, which has ample closet space. An impressive feature on this floor is the master bathroom, which includes a Japanese toilet with a built-in bidet, soaking tub, dual sinks, a towel warmer and underfloor heating. Fancy!
A bonus room that could be used as a home office, den or extra bedroom, is situated off the master bedroom.
Two more bedrooms, separated by a playroom and a bathroom, are up on the third floor.
Here’s a look at the townhouse from the rear, with its glass terrace off the kitchen and a large, funky backyard. Looks perfect for a summer party.
And here’s a look at the townhouse from the front, which retained its historic brick facade and stoop. The townhouse is located between Frederick Douglas Boulevard and St. Nicholas Avenue, a half block from St. Nicholas Park. The closest subway is the A/C/B at 135th Street.
