If you’re an old home lover, get ready to swoon. This Harlem townhouse at 465 West 141st Street has all of its historic details intact. Pretty much every room of the house will take you back to 1905, when the townhouse was built. Newer renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms also blend in seamlessly with the older detailing. It’s up on the market for a bold price, given that the property is located further north in Harlem, just beyond City College. The current owner bought it last year for $2.3 million, now it’s been listed for $2.995 million. After seeing the rest of the interior, you may just wish you could fork over the money right now…

The pictures pretty much speak for themselves–just check out that incredible living room. The listing calls it an “Edwardian parlor,” which sounds just extravagant enough. There’s an onyx fireplace, topped with the original oval mirror that’s covered with laurel leaves and vines. The walls are outfitted in cupids, cartouches and columns.

Located on the same floor as the “Edwardian parlor” is the mahogany-paneled library (with, of course, another fireplace). The library leads out to a cedar-decked terrace, offering an amazing place to read the books procured from your beautiful library. No, we’re not jealous.

The home also boasts its original mahogany staircase. The house is huge, with 4,500 square feet over four floors.

The kitchen, which was newly renovated, fits right in with the rest of the historic house. With the renovation comes fancy appliances and granite countertops. On one end of the kitchen, there’s a small garden patio to relax in. On the other end you have a modest dining room.

We’re also loving this renovated bathroom, which has 1920s period-designed tiles and a huge walk-in shower.

There are five bedrooms over 11 total rooms. The rear bedroom comes with its own fireplace…

…As well as the front bedroom, which also has the benefit of big windows and lots of light. We’re finding it hard to pick out something not to like about this pad–beside the fact that it’s out of our price range!
