Harlem Townhouse With Original Details Now Wants $3.2M

New, 31 comments


This single-family Central Harlem townhouse is now back on the market asking $3.2 million, almost a year after it was listed for almost $3M and then PriceChopped to $2.67M before vanishing from sight. Although there's been no apparent upgrades made to the house to merit the new price hike, 345 West 121st Street does fall in the 10027 zip code, the priciest of Harlem locales. (There's also the record-breaking market for Manhattan sales.) The 3,700-square-foot four bedroom townhouse comes with much of its original details intact, including mahogany wood door frames and moldings, those giant turn-of-the-century mirrors, and plenty of chandeliers. And for any fireplace fanatic, this place has seven—albeit switched over to gas- rather than wood-burning. The kitchen looks nicely appointed, and the landscaped backyard isn't too shabby either.

The floorplan is a bit quirky: the master bathroom is Jack-and-Jill with the other bedroom on the third floor, and one of the fourth-floor bedrooms appears to be only accessible through a closet. Also, the home office does lack windows to the outside world—perhaps a workspace for the easily distracted? Sorely missed in the listing pics is any sign of the two full or two half baths, but if the updated kitchen is any indicator, potential buyers need not worry.
