Here at Curbed NY HQ, we love a good Sylvan Terrace townhouse; homes on the hidden Washington Heights street rarely hit the market, so when they do, we tend to take notice.
And as of today, one of those houses, at 11 Sylvan Terrace (near the middle of the block, though slightly closer to the neighboring Morris-Jumel Mansion), is up for grabs—it’s listed with Stribling’s Lori Glick and Cortney Appelbaum for $1.625 million. (That’s in line with prices for other Sylvan Terrace houses that have listed recently.)
This particular home has benefited from a modern renovation, though many of its historic characteristics have been kept intact. The original joists, which have been left open, and exposed brick are preserved in the kitchen/dining area (located on the garden floor, and accessible via the house’s tiny hobbit door), along with a curving staircase connecting the upper floors.
But it was also “architecturally designed,” per the listing, with an open layout in the common areas, new bathrooms, new mechanicals, and more. It’s a single-family home with two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a tiny office, and a wee little garden, among its other features.
