Mikhail Baryshnikov, who fled the Soviet Union in 1974 and landed in Canada is today considered one of the greatest ballet dancers in history (closer to home, he also starred in “Sex and the City” as Sarah Jessica Parker’s penultimate love interest). Nearly six years ago, he and his wife, former ballerina Lisa Rinehart, relocated to Harlem from the posh upstate enclave Snedens Landing, and they’re clearly happy with this move, as they also recently bought a $1.4 million condo at the Strathmore, located at 1890 Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard (h/t NY Post). Their new prewar abode, originally listed for $1.32 million, boasts three bedrooms, a cozy layout, and high ceilings.
Large windows let lots of natural sunlight in to the generous living and dining rooms, which include plenty of space for entertaining. The beautiful Mount Neboh Baptist Church and tree-lined boulevard make for a great view.
The open layout and hardwood floors featured throughout give this unit a cozy feel. The kitchen includes Hansgrohe fixtures and stainless steel Whirlpool appliances.
The 1,340-square-foot condo has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, which include sunflower shower heads and recessed medicine cabinets.
The building’s prewar character remains visible with its brick and limestone exterior, and a wrought iron gate. This unit in the Strathmore sits at a convenient location to both Central Park and Morningside park, with an abundance of restaurants and shopping nearby. Plus, it’s easy to get anywhere you want, as the 2, 3, 6, B and C subway lines are within walking distance from the Strathmore.
