Washington Heights Townhouse: An Urban Oasis + Smart Income.

Come home to a quintessential New York City neighborhood, rich in history and culture. Spread out and relax in the 3-bdrm/3.5 bath owner’s triplex with wood-burning fireplace and large private garden. Enter through double doors on the garden level. The open kitchen with 14’ long stone counter, stainless appliances and tons of cabinets connects the open dining area to the open living room with double doors out to the garden. A bedroom fits comfortably in the back extension and overlooks the garden and patio.

Up a handsome staircase, the parlour floor features two large bedrooms, both with high ceilings and en suite baths. The master bedroom in the back overlooks the garden and its bathroom includes both a classic clawfoot tub and glass-walled shower, a floor-to-ceiling bank of storage cabinets, and a convenient washer/dryer located under the long marble counter. The front bedroom overlooks West 161 Street through a large picture window and has its own second separate entrance through the public hallway.

The lowest level of the triplex has a large extra bedroom/recreation space with a window, natural light and a full bath. This floor also has a half bath, lots of storage, and the utility and meter rooms.

While the triplex is move-in ready and will be delivered vacant, there are still lots of opportunities to add your ideas and personal touches.

The two spacious 1-bdrm floor-thru apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors can provide a nice monthly income stream of $4K+ to help with the mortgage. Apt 2 has a study/small 2nd bedroom in the extension. Apt 3 has a terrace overlooking the treetops off the living room. Both apartments have high ceilings. The tenants separately control and pay for their own heat and hot water.

This 3-family limestone & brownstone Washington Heights townhouse rubs elbows with nearby Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan’s oldest surviving house, charming Sylvan Terrace, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, the Audubon Ballroom and many nearby restaurants, wine bars and shops to discover.
