☞ DWELL: 239 West 123rd Street Brownstone
For under a million, the brownstone at 239 West 123rd Street between FDB/8th Avenue and ACP/7th Avenue might be the perfect match for those searching in the borders of South Harlem and Morningside Heights. Apparently the house has many original details intact and the owner has started a partial renovation on the parlor floor. By the looks of it, the place might not be considered habitable since there are plywood boards up instead of windows so renovation loans might be an issue for those buyers who can not pay for the property in cash. The asking price is $950K so it might do well with a bit of haircut to make it more attractive since its been on the market for a couple of months now. The location, by the way, is excellent with the ever changing FDB corridor and Morningside Park close by and the A,B,C,D and 2,3 express trains close by at 125th Street.
