This 25-foot-wide townhouse at 330 Convent Avenue in the landmarked Hamilton Heights historic district has lost none of its original mansion grandeur. Though its layout is very much in the style of the traditional Victorian-era mansion, the 6,400-square-foot, five-story property has modern convenience–from the elevator to the custom security system–on its side. Well maintained and updated, the home, now asking $6,250,000, features a landscaped private backyard, a gated private garden entrance to a separate studio apartment, 11-foot ceilings, and original details.

The home’s formal entry is on the parlor floor via a harlequin-patterned marble foyer. A dramatic front room is framed by 11-foot ceilings, oversized windows, and an antique French mantel.

From the front room, restored pocket doors reveal a stunning center hall with an original carved wood mantelpiece. Through another set of massive pocket doors is a sun-filled formal dining room with space to seat 20. This room boasts a marble-mantel fireplace and overlooks the private garden oasis below. There is a powder room on this floor as well. An elegant staircase rises through all floors, and light falls from above from a skylight at the top.

On the garden floor, you’ll find a sprawling kitchen with traditional styling and up-to-the-minute convenience, including a massive breakfast bar/island, pinewood cabinetry, granite worktops, and chef-level appliances.

The kitchen opens onto the home’s 465-square-foot back garden for al fresco dining and entertaining. This floor also offers a separate studio apartment with its own entrance that would be perfect as an income-producing unit, staff quarters, or friends-and-family suite.

On the third floor, the spacious primary bedroom suite has retained the luxury of the original dual dressing rooms. Also found here is a stylish library with bespoke bookshelves and a period fireplace.

Three additional bedrooms can be found on the fourth floor, along with two full bathrooms, a study, and fabulous closet space. At the mansion’s pinnacle, discover a bedroom and a separate living room, with plenty of options. The home’s rooftop is also a blank canvas with the option of creating a custom roof deck.

The historic Hamilton Heights neighborhood is named after its equally historic resident, Alexander Hamilton. It’s one of the city’s loveliest enclaves while being within blocks of public transportation, parks, and much more.
