If you want to live in one of the oldest private co-ops in Harlem, here’s your chance. The 25-foot-wide, 102-foot-long unit at 152 West 131st Street has an interesting floor plan with the living room and dining room on complete opposite sides of a long narrow hallway. But it has charming original details, nice finishes, and it’s in an adorable brownstone, so the $1.1 million pad is definitely worth a look.
Enter the grand parlor residence from a public hall to find pocket doors, original hardwood floors, and two prewar fireplace mantels. One of those mantles is in the living room, which has a bay window and pocket doors leading to a windowed library and one of the home’s three bedrooms.
As you walk down the hallway to the kitchen and dining room, you’ll pass two additional bedrooms, including the master, which has a powder room with an original marble sink. In the dining room you’ll find the second fireplace, while the fully renovated gourmet chef’s kitchen sports an original butler’s pantry with French cabinet doors, an additional full-size pantry and a breakfast room.
152 West 131st Street was built in 1896 and converted into a private co-op in 1923. Its location right in the heart of Harlem puts it near the cafés and restaurants sprouting up all along Lenox Avenue.
