Maya Angelou's Historic Harlem Brownstone Is Off The Market

The four-story townhouse was listed in January for $5.1 million

The Harlem brownstone that was once home to the late poet, Maya Angelou, is now in contract, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The five-bedroom townhouse first went on the market for just over $5 million back January, and in subsequent months the price came down to $4.595 million.

The sales agent on the property declined to disclose the contract price, but if it went into contract for somewhere near its asking price, it would still make it one of the priciest deals in the neighborhood.

Angelou hired architect Marc Anderson to execute a gut renovation of the four-story building after she purchased it in the early 2000s. That renovation helped restore some of the historic features of this early 20th century house like the fireplaces, the oak front doors, and the staircase banisters.
