Hamilton Heights may not be one of the places that immediately come to mind when mentioning the trendy or “hot spots” of Manhattan but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be. The neighborhood has a lot going for it, and it’s also home to loads of historic homes filled with charm and character. This stunning townhouse at 346 Convent Avenue is definitely one of them.
Designed by William Mowbray and built in 1886, this seemingly narrow home manages to offer roughly 4,500 square feet of space (according to the listing description) and aims to make the most of it. Currently situated as a multi-family unit, there is a total of six bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms, but it can easily be converted back into a single-family residence.
Plenty of details keep the home in touch with its 19th century days, but modern updates weren’t overlooked either. For instance, the parlor floor still maintains its fireplace (alas, it’s only decorative), inlaid wood floors, high ceilings, and huge bay windows while the kitchen combines a decorative fireplace with an open eat-in kitchen and its new appliances.
On the upper levels, many of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms in as well as generous closet space and even more decorative fireplaces. Judging from the floorplan, the backyard isn’t super expansive but still offers a fair amount of room to roam.
How much does it all cost? $3.295 million is the magic number.
