Harlem 'Manor' With 'Chic Parisian Garret' Wants $4.95 Million

New, 10 comments


Wow, this house. A five-story home in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood of Harlem, the property at 326 Convent Avenue spans more than 5,300 square feet and includes the following details: front doors from the 18th century; a multitude of fireplaces; dark wood detailing up the wazoo; stained glass windows; a private backyard, and coffered ceilings of every style. Plus, the fifth-floor, which the brokerbabble dubs a "chic Parisian garret" has charming sloped ceilings and exposed brick. There are four bedrooms, three parlors (how very Downton Abbey), and 3.5 baths; of the latter, the one with the intricate mosaics and enormous oval tub really grabs the attention. It sold after asking $1.9M in 2007, so it's clear that a pretty extravagant renovation has taken place between then and now. But is it worth nearly $5 million?
