$3M Harlem Townhouse Boasts Old-School Elevator, Backyard

New, 6 comments

A George Pelham-designed townhouse on West 122nd Street hit the market this week, and it's got a lot going for it. Considering it was built in 1887, the Queen Anne-style facade is well-preserved, and there's an abundance of exposed brick and some other historic details. The electrical and other systems have all been updated, and such a renovation is probably why the seller is trying to get away with asking $2,995,000. The home has been on and off the market since 2010, though, with the price ping-ponging up and down each time it's listed, so who knows. An owner's triplex takes up the cellar and the first two stories, with two rental units on the third and fourth floors. Bonus: a throwback elevator with sliding gate for the triplex, and some fanciful (if not period-appropriate) bathroom tile and fixtures.
