Asking $1.895 million, this two-bedroom Harlem condominium penthouse at the building known as Strivers Lofts at 223 West 135th Street spans 1,700 square feet with the light and views you’d expect from the top floor. A bit more unexpected is the added perk in the form of a separate 200-square-foot home office with a powder room on the building’s ground floor. The penthouse has high ceilings, tall windows, and a large planted roof deck in a former light industrial building, which is now home to full-floor lofts.
A key-locked elevator brings you to the main level, where a sleek open kitchen offers state-of-the-art appliances, a vented range hood, and a huge center island.
A lofty living room has double-height ceilings, pale oak flooring, exposed brick and room for dining. Light is controlled with a full-height window system with linen blinds.
An architectural staircase rises to an upper living room and terraces. The south-facing terrace is furnished with modern planters and blessed with city skyline views. The building’s common roof deck can be accessed from the private terrace.
Also on the main/lower level are two light-filled bedrooms, two spacious baths and plenty of closet space. Off the kitchen is a windowed utility and laundry room with a full-sized washer and vented dryer. As mentioned, the apartment comes with an office space with a powder room (which can also be used as a storage space) on the building’s lower level.
The condominium gets its name from Strivers’ Row, located nearby from West 138th to West 139th Streets between Adam Clayton Powell and Frederick Douglass Boulevards. The celebrated Harlem enclave was home to prominent, wealthy African-American performers, artists, and professionals who lived in the area’s row of stately brick homes.
