For $1.575M, a quaint townhouse on hidden Sylvan Terrace

A vintage charmer

A Sylvan Terrace townhouse for sale is kind of like a real estate unicorn: they pop up pretty rarely, and we always get excited when they do appear.

But this particular home, at 19 Sylvan Terrace, has actually been on the market for some time; it first listed in February of last year, albeit with photos that didn’t do the charming corner townhouse any favors. Now, it’s back with a new broker—Corcoran has the listing this time around—and a new, lower price tag of $1.575 million.

And yes, there are new photos: This time, they actually make the interiors of the circa-1883 home look as lovely as its exterior, which—like the other Sylvan Terrace houses—is outfitted in cream clapboard with brown and green accents.

It’s a two-family townhouse, with a large, renovated studio on the ground floor (with its own entry point), and a two-bedroom duplex above that; there’s also a small back garden, which is more like a patio per the photos. Decorative elements like built-in bookshelves and exposed brick add to the charm of this place.

The listing also notes that No. 19 is at the northeastern end of the hidden street, so it’s close to the historic Morris-Jumel Mansion, itself one of Manhattan’s most underrated gems.
