This Harlem townhouse is one of a kind, thanks to a recent renovation. Located at 363 West 120th Street–just a half block from Morningside Park–the historic property was configured into an owner’s triplex with a rental duplex below. While some interior details like the original tile and woodwork were integrated with the design, the overall aesthetic feels more modern, with bold additions like steel doors, recessed lighting and a super sleek kitchen. The unique finished product is now on the market asking $4.5 million.
The triplex’s parlor foyer, which has that original tile and woodwork, leads to an open concept plan that holds the kitchen, dining and living areas. You’ve got lots of modern amenities in here, like central air conditioning, plus design quirks like the wall of poured concrete in the living room. The kitchen has “white blizzard” stone countertops and a backsplash, plus a warming drawer, microwave and dishwasher.
Sliding french doors from the living room lead to the parlor floor terrace, which brings natural light onto the townhouse’s main floor throughout the day.
Four bedrooms and three bathrooms fill the upper two floors of the triplex. These floors are decked out with hardwood floors and bathrooms with marble finishes. There’s a modern tile design along the staircase up here that was designed by the Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola.
From the top floor, the owner’s also have access to a roof deck.
The garden floor duplex rental is nothing short of charming, with exposed brick and a fireplace on display. The open kitchen down here was also renovated.
The rental comes with access to the backyard, which the listing says “was finished with Grey TREX decking for low maintenance, luxurious outdoor living.” It’s visible from the parlor floor patio.
What’s not to love about a block of historic Harlem townhouses right off Morningside Park? Columbia University is located just west, and the 1 train a 125th Street is a few blocks north.
