Soap Star Cameron Mathison Sells Turn-Key Harlem Brownstone for $3.3M

In September, 6sqft uncovered the listing for 136 West 130th Street, the brownstone owned by Emmy-nominated “All My Children” regular and current “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent Cameron Mathison and his wife, Vanessa. The couple bought the four-bedroom home for $1.2 million in 2004 after house hunting and falling in love with Harlem‘s “Sesame Street” vibe. It had already been through a substantial developer-led renovation, but Mathison finished up the job, creating an urban oasis that’s a mix of classic charm and contemporary fixes.

Though the Canadian actor told the Times in 2009 that he “envisioned being in this place forever,” the plans changed when the TV show moved studios to Los Angeles. That same year, the couple listed the four-story home for $2.7 million, followed by a price cut to $2.5 million in 2011. There were no takers, so they rented the property out for $6,900 a month, before re-listing it this past fall for $2.9 million. Despite moving back to NYC, Luxury Listings NYC reports that the soap opera heartthrob has now sold the residence for $3.3 million, pretty significantly over ask.

The 4,000-square-foot home has a modern steel floating staircases, exposed brick, two-zone radiator heating, three-zone central air, a security system and a full basement. Pictured above is the garden level, configured as a large, open space highlighted by the media room that comes complete with surround sound, a ceiling-mounted projector, and a high-def screen.

Off the media room is the landscaped garden/patio, which is perfect for warm-weather movie screenings. Aptly described as “zen,” it has a Mexican stone tile entrance, a waterfall, an irrigation system, an ipe wood deck and fence, planters and a central lighting system.

The parlor floor contains the kitchen and dining areas, as well as the main living area with its wood-burning fireplace and large, street-facing windows. The kitchen has high-end appliances, including a wine fridge, and there’s a deck off the dining room that comes with a grill and a spiral staircase leading down to the garden.

The second floor is dedicated to the master suite. Amenities here include built-in drawers and cabinets, a walk-in closet, an interior window soundproofing system, master bath with spa tub for two, and a home office with its own private deck overlooking the garden below.

The top floor is cleverly designed as a family space, with a central hall between bedrooms that functions as an all-purpose kids’ space. It has a large skylight and a custom shelving/storage/desk center. No word on if the Mathisons will stay in Harlem, but Cameron did a stint hosting the home renovation reality show “Game of Homes,” so he’s certainly suited to take on another fixer-upper.
