This five-story Georgian-style townhouse at 2362 Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard was built in 1896 and has only been home to two owners since that time. Its original owner was among the first African-American dentists living and practicing on Strivers’ Row. The single-family townhouse may be only just over 15 feet wide, but a wealth of history and intact original details make it a gracious home. Asking $2,495,000, the 4,112 square-foot 14-room home contains seven bedrooms and nine fireplaces.

Always the showpiece of a townhouse, the home’s parlor floor has 11-foot ceilings above a formal sitting room with a Juliet balcony. There’s a gallery for your artwork in the central area between rooms.

To the rear is a formal dining room as well as a stair to the kitchen below. Also on this level is a full bath.

The garden level does the heavy lifting, with a living room/den at the front providing a gathering space or guest bedroom. A spacious eat-in kitchen lies to the rear, and there’s a full bathroom here as well. That coveted urban perk, a rear yard, lies just off the kitchen, perfect for outdoor dining. The yard/patio offers egress to 138th Street.

On the 3rd floor are two bedrooms with ample closet space and a full bath. Almost every room boasts a decorative fireplace.

On the fourth floor are two more bedrooms, with one currently in use as a convenient second kitchen. An original skylight on the fifth floor diffuses light throughout the home. Also on the top floor are three bedrooms–all with capacious closets–and a full bath.

This lovely Harlem home is near the B/C subway trains on St. Nicholas Avenue and the 2/3 trains on Malcolm X Boulevard. The Strivers’ Row address is surrounded by neighborhood landmarks, popular restaurants, gourmet shops, services, and grocers.
