Considered one of the most beautiful and historic parts of Harlem, the Mount Morris Park Historic District is mainly comprised of late-19th-century townhouses, ranging in style from Romanesque Revival to Queen Anne. The most stately are along Mount Morris Park West, like this gorgeous mansion at number 12, currently on the market for $8.2 million. It has nearly 8,000 square feet of interior space, 10 bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and two half baths, and loads of preserved woodwork that harken back to the home’s construction in 1888.

The beautiful woodwork is on full display in the entry foyer, from the built-in bench and mirror to the carved staircase to the wall paneling.

Off the foyer, the main formal living room has 16-foot-high molded ceilings, intricate wood flooring, and a beautiful bay window overlooking the park, complete with stained glass transoms.

From there, the formal dining room is just as exquisite, with its coffered ceilings and oversized fireplace.

Directly off the dining room is a small galley kitchen.

The recently renovated main kitchen is on the lower garden level, where there’s also another living/dining room, a bedroom, and a full bathroom. Therefore, this floor could easily function as a separate apartment. Leading out to the garden, there’s a wood-paneled hallway lined with a wet bar and many closets.

The backyard features brick pavers, shaded by trees.

The entire third floor is devoted to the primary bedroom suite. The street-facing bedroom XX, while the rear room is currently configured as a sitting room. These rooms are separated by an en-suite bathroom, and there’s another full bath in the hall. Also, off the bedroom is a small home office.

There are three more bedrooms on the fourth floor.

The fifth floor could also be used as a separate unit, as it has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a living space, and a small kitchen. In addition, (though not pictured) the basement has been set up as a home gym and large laundry room.
