While the $899,000 ask on this two-bedroom, floor-through apartment at 30 West 126th Street in Harlem may not be a total steal, an apartment of this size with well-designed custom renovations, central heat and air, closet space, and a cozy balcony would likely be much more costly in many other Manhattan neighborhoods. And certainly a pretty brownstone block steps from shopping (a Whole Foods is on the way) and subways would up the price even more. Yet this brick-lined, light-filled home has every bit as much townhouse appeal as its West Village counterparts.
Built in 1909 and completely renovated in 2008, this pristine condominium–it’s on the third floor but only two flights up, the listing assures us–has a nice collection of pre-war details like high ceilings, exposed brick walls, oversized windows and decorative fireplaces.
New additions include gleaming Brazilian cherry wood floors, an open chef’s kitchen with granite countertops and Bosch appliances and central heat and air, plus an LG vented washer/dryer.
The home’s two bedrooms are spacious and don’t skimp on closet space. The master has an ensuite bath and a bonus office room that leads to the private semi-enclosed balcony. For even more storage there’s a private closet located in the basement.
We’re guessing lots of your friends have been extolling the area’s virtues for a while; this may be a great opportunity to join them in a neighborhood with plenty of cool–and perhaps a little upside.
