The Upper Manhattan townhouse at 40 Hamilton Terrace is a rare example of a historic home that doesn’t need to be stripped of character to join the modern world. Asking $3,900,000, this Hamilton Heights home has Henri Fouchaux to thank for its graceful turn-of-the-century architecture. Within the 4,142-square-foot home, beautifully-detailed woodwork frames five bedrooms and six full baths, including a charming and turn-key garden apartment. An enchanted back garden adds the good fortune of outdoor living.

The home’s parlor floor is suitably grand, from its intricately carved foyer to traditional front and back parlors and a formal full dining room. Well-preserved decorative fireplaces, detailed woodworking, and original tiles frame a lively bohemian mix of colorful walls, rugs, and furnishings.

The combination is at its best in the colorful plant-filled kitchen, where a lavender wall contrasts with stainless steel appliances in a sun-filled extension. The kitchen opens onto a deck for al fresco dining. Below lies a beautifully landscaped garden with mature plantings and spaces created for outdoor living.

Upstairs is an elegant primary suite with a bay window, a dressing room, and a delightful sky-blue-hued bath. You’ll find another bedroom and bath on this floor.

On the home’s top floor are two more spacious bedrooms and baths, and a washer/dryer. Who wouldn’t look forward to a daily workout in this beautifully-detailed home gym?

On the garden floor, a separate one-bedroom apartment boasts spacious rooms, a renovated kitchen, and two baths. Lucky residents of this space also have access to the back garden.

The home sits on a historic block of a street named for Hamilton Grange, Alexander Hamilton’s former country house, which was built in 1802 on the hilltop of West 141st Street.
