Harlem Bespoke:  Everyone has been wondering about what has been happening with Settepani at the corner of 120th Street on Lenox and it now appears that some major progress is happening on the exterior.  Green decorative foliage has suddenly become and addition to the local family-owned eatery which definitely portends an opening happening very soon.  Settepani has been around for almost 2 decades and was one of the first finer dining businesses to open uptown but had been closed since the beginning of the year.  We hear that some dramatic changes have happened within and the new look of eatery will make it a destination spot for years to come.  Check out our past post for more on Settepani: LINK

Harlem Bespoke: Some of the most detailed townhouses to be found uptown are located within the Mount Morris Park Historic District and we noted one listing that had an extraordinary interior example not seen elsewhere. Number 4 West 122nd Street is currently on the market for the asking of $4.2 million and the above photo reveals that one of the parlor fireplaces (to the far right) has an intricate series of ornate columns supporting a miniature roof.  It is unclear if any of these fireplaces actually work but the pure visual Victorian drama is something quite spectacular.

As previously mentioned, this grand Mount Morris Park home has a majority of original details intact within and is also in the coveted single-family layout but some of the interior probably needs a touchup to get things up to date.  Whole Foods and the express trains on Lenox are just 3 blocks away which makes this historic location especially desirable.   More photos and broker information on Streeteasy: LINK
