Overlooking the sprawling Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem this five-bedroom townhouse on West 120th Street is currently the most expensive townhouse on the market in the neighborhood save for a multi-family building on East 129th Street that’s asking $5.9 million.

The townhouse on West 120th Street was recently renovated and is spread out over four floors. In addition to the five-bedrooms the home comes with 2.5 bathrooms, and space for a home office.

The most captivating feature in this house by far is the skylight atop the metal staircase that fills this townhouse with light. Some of the other standout features here include four, wood-burning fireplaces, radiant heated floors, soaring ceilings, a kitchen that comes with a wrap-around island, and a master bathroom with a soaking tub and a separate glass stall shower.

If the park across the street is not your cup of tea, this townhouse offers its own outdoor space. One of the bedrooms has a deck attached to it, and there’s a garden on the ground floor. The townhouse is currently configured as a two-family home, but is being marketed as a single-family house.

It’s current owner purchased the townhouse in 2010 for $1.65 million when it was asking $1.9 million, and they’ve significantly upped the ask as they look to move away.
