The quaint row houses of landmarked Sylvan Terrace are tucked away on one of the city’s “secret” streets in Washington Heights, which used to be the carriage drive to the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest house in Manhattan where General George Washington held a temporary headquarters during the Revolutionary War. Residences on the charming street rarely become available, but the three-bedroom at 14 Sylvan Terrace just hit the market for $1,589,000. With plenty of original details, including two fireplaces, pocket doors, and period hardwood floors, here’s a chance to experience “romance from another era,” as the listing describes.

The first stop on the parlor level is an inviting and bright living room, with a wood-burning fireplace, lots of natural light, and views of charming Sylvan Terrace. Pocket doors lead you into a more informal living area that connects to a lovely furnished deck equipped with electricity and water access.

On the ground floor level, you’ll find a fully-renovated kitchen open to a dining area. The smallest bedroom is on this floor and could make a great guest room or home office. There’s also a bathroom with a washer and dryer.
