If this home is, as the listing calls it, “the jewel of this historic neighborhood,” the three-block historic Harlem enclave of Hamilton Terrace is a treasure trove, anchored by the Hamilton Grange home of Alexander Hamilton. Listed at $5,495,000, the limestone and terra cotta mansion at 72 Hamilton Terrace is recognizable by its mansard slate roof punctuated by dormer windows and the original wrought iron fencing that surrounds it. This nearly-5,000-square-foot home offers five stories of newly-renovated modern living, including a finished cellar with restaurant-style bar and a wine cellar. The home’s $5.495 price tag makes it the priciest single-family listing in the neighborhood; if it sells for that much it may be Harlem’s most expensive sale ever.

After two years of renovation what was formerly a church has been restored and updated for 21st-century living. Entering through the foyer, a bright living room with a gas fireplace greets us.

Through tall mahogany pocket doors we find a cozy library with a wet bar and half bath; beyond is the home’s landscaped back yard–one of many spaces primed for entertaining in any season.

The next floor–by now some critics have come to expect an elevator in a renovation this thorough, but, alas, you’ll need to install your own–offers a gourmet kitchen with an expansive marble center island and marble tile backsplash, herringbone wood floors and a chef’s selection of appliances and fixtures. Also here are a dining room and family room with a second gas fireplace.

On the third floor is the master bedroom, a luxurious marble bath with steam shower and radiant heated floors plus a huge walk-in closet, and a guest suite. On the top floor are two more bedrooms, another bath and a spacious laundry room.

A landscaped roof deck offers views of midtown Manhattan.

Not content with four floors of living and entertaining space this unique mansion rocks a fully-finished cellar with a restaurant-style bar, a wine cellar and a billiards table.

Besides the bragging rights to living in Alexander Hamilton’s old neighborhood and windows on three sides (42 of them!) you get the benefit of nine-zone heating and air conditioning and a security system that he most likely had to live without.
