There’s no doubt the Hamilton Heights Historic District is like a little gem in Harlem. This 5,000-square-foot, five-story townhouse at 329 Convent Avenue boasts gorgeous intricate original woodwork, and a lush backyard. And it’s back on the rental market for $13,000 a month.
The parlor level features a living room and dining room, two gas fireplaces, and a wet bar. Upstairs on the third floor are two bedrooms, also with fireplaces. The rooms are connected by two dressing areas. The fourth level has a master with en suite bath and a large walk-in closet. There’s also a fourth bedroom that is probably better suited for an office or sitting room.
You can get in shape without even leaving your home by trekking up to the attic where there is a home gym and a roof deck. Then downstairs, the garden level has a separate apartment with direct access to the 500 square-foot landscaped yard.
Hamilton Heights is a prestigious section of Harlem that used to be the site of Alexander Hamilton’s estate. Former residents of the area include Adam Clayton Powell and Duke Ellington.
