Woodsy Harlem Rug Emporium-Slash-Townhouse Wants $2.5M


This two-family townhouse chock full of rugs and tapestries, one block east of Morningside Park, wants $2.5 million for the whole building, which currently accommodates two separate rental units. The ground-floor apartment at 122nd Street and Manhattan Avenue has one bedroom with a walk-in closet, one bathroom, and an open kitchen and living room. This unit has exclusive access to the building's basement, where there is a laundry facility. The second unit, pictured, boasts soaring ceilings and three floors. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom triplex, starting on the second floor, has three fireplaces, two top-floor skylights, and plenty of old and new woodwork spread throughout. The triplex has exclusive access to the building's garden via a spiral staircase.

This airy and open home, a possible single-family conversion, comes with a relatively modest asking price in a neighborhood on the rise. The building can be delivered vacant. If the new owner chooses to unseat the triplex's current occupants, maybe they can negotiate a deal for a few of those patchwork adornments.
