A sprawling townhouse located in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem has sold for close to $5 million, setting a record for the most expensive townhouse sold in the neighborhood. Harlem Bespoke first reported on the development, and Curbed confirmed with the listing agent, Tamara Marotta from Douglas Elliman, that the sale is in fact the priciest townhouse sold in Harlem.
The five-story townhouse features 5,300 square feet of space. The house has some remarkably unique features like 18th Century front doors, Herringbone French oak floors throughout the house, pewter counter tops in the kitchen and hand-carved mosaic tiles in the bathroom connected to the master bedroom. This bathroom also features a stunning, oval shaped bathtub.
The townhouse has a total of four bedrooms, three parlors, and 3.5 bathrooms, and the high ceilings and three fireplaces are definitely a plus as well.
The townhouse was listed on the market almost a year ago for $4.95 million. Marotta from Douglas Elliman wouldn't say how much the home sold for, but the fact that it sold for just under $5 million means it likely matched or bettered the asking price. The townhouse previously sold for $1.7 million back in 2007.
One of previous, priciest townhouse sales in the neighborhood was an 8,000 square foot home that Neil Patrick Harris purchased in 2013 for just under $4 million.
