Located right across from the historic Morris-Jumel Mansion

Located right across from the historic Morris-Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights, and on one of New York City’s most charming, and hidden streets, this two-bedroom, turn-key townhouse at 16 Sylvan Terrace is now on the market for $1.7 million.

Part of the Jumel Terrace Historic District, the three-story townhouse is a confluence of the traditional and modern, according to the brokerbable, with the townhouse having been renovated to reflect the feel of the 1880s, when a number of the townhouses on the street were built, but it is also fitted with several modern amenities.

These include Bosch appliances in the kitchen, radiant heating on the first floor, an audio/video intercom, and zoned air conditioning and heating. The kitchen is located on the first floor and part of it can also be used as a home office or a third bedroom. A parlor and dining room are located on the second, and the two bedrooms are located on the third floor, which also comes with a pretty skylight.

Like other hidden streets in the city, offerings on Sylvan Terrace are rare — a house at 19 Sylvan Terrace was available in February this year for $1.68 million, but has since sold.
