Two years ago, this Hamilton Heights townhouse at 465 West 141st Street was one of Manhattan's ten least expensive. It no longer carries that distinction despite its stay on the market because the 4,500-square-foot house is now asking $2.995 million, or $600,000 more than in 2013. The listing says that the townhouse off of Amsterdam Avenue has "all its period details," which include an onyx fireplace in the second-floor parlor "crowned by the original oval mirror covered with laurel leaves and vines." Other carved intricacies like "cupids, cartouches and columns" line the room. A third floor en suite bathroom has "original wooden cabinets carved with open work leaves and flowers" as well as an original stained glass window. The townhouse has its fair share of more modern touches too, like an updated kitchen with a Viking stove, Bosch dishwasher, and a garbage disposal.
