16 West 130th Street - Harlem, New York
IN CONTRACT - Astor Row Townhouse. Welcome to one of the most historic and tranquil blocks in New York City. This landmarked row of unique townhouses, built in 1880, offers country living in vibrant central Harlem. The charm of these houses is evident when you turn onto the block and are amazed at the sight of a delightful row of brick houses with large wooden front porches, perhaps an apple tree or flowers in a front yard. Seldom do these semi-detached houses come to market. Number 16 Astor Row - 4 story, 20' wide with 22' bump outs, set upon on a 25-foot-wide lot, faces a stunning neo-gothic church built in 1873. The tranquil surroundings of the house are enhanced by a side garden, as well as the front and back garden. And upon entering this splendidly renovated home the charm continues with the wonderful symmetry and grand proportions of gorgeous rooms flooded by natural light. All the windows are wide and reach almost floor to ceiling. The living room/dining room/kitchen on the parlor floor flows with a clean elegance. Herringbone oak floors, chef's kitchen, custom cabinetry traditional and modern well blended. The garden level offers a large recreation room which flows out into the landscaped garden. Upstairs the master bedroom is flanked by a large master bath with a free standing tub and rain shower. Again, bountiful space, a large walk-in closet. Plus, a top floor entertainment space with coffered ceiling, wet bar. Four bedrooms. Five bathrooms, all with subtle triple mint tile work. Central air, washer/dryer. Just around the corner from this idyllic setting, you will find the Red Rooster, Restaurant Row and the soon to open, Whole Foods.
