Over the summer, 6sqft shared the sale of the late Maya Angelou’s historic Harlem brownstone. After listing last February for $5.1 million, the beautifully preserved home in the Mount Morris Park Historic District finally sold for $4 million in July. But as it turns 0ut, this wasn’t the only property she owned that hit the market at the beginning of the year. The Post reports that the author and activist also owned a property for which she was the landlord, just about ten blocks away at 29 East 129th Street, and after hitting the market for $2.6 million and going through two price chops, it’s now found a buyer for $1.98 million.
The Real Deal notes that Angelou, who passed away in 2014 at age 86, bought the three-family investment property for just $275,000 in 2001, one year before she purchased her personal residence. There’s a garden-level duplex with two bedrooms and two one-bedroom units above. The cellar has a laundry room and storage space for each apartment.
The new buyer isn’t known, but sources say there are rental tenants in place.
