A corner home located in the spine of the Hamilton Heights Historic District has hit the market for the first time in nearly two decades. Located at 381 Convent Avenue, on the same block where Alexander Hamilton once lived, a four-story townhouse is asking $2.675 million. Built in 1893 by John M. Cahill, the Romanesque Revival property measures 3,200 square feet, contains five bedrooms, four bathrooms and an adorable, private garden. Just a few houses down at 327 Convent Avenue, another historic townhouse is for sale for a $3.7 million.
The entrance to the home boasts an enormous foyer, leading to a double parlor. The room features decorative fireplaces and super high ceilings. Bay windows on both sides provide eastern and southern exposure, greatly brightening up the space.
The stunning central staircase brings you to the eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, bathroom and garden. Above that level, the master bedroom, four bedrooms and two full baths can be found.
Adding to the home’s charm, the backyard garden has plenty of natural light, but also the perfect amount of shaded areas. A rental studio can be set up on this level if desired.
