☞ DWELL: 401 Manhattan Avenue off Market

The Met's Victorian Curator's house on 401 Manhattan Avenue was listed as being in contract last week, but today it has been removed from the market. Usually when the deal comes through, the brokers are more than happy to have the listing marked as SOLD but that is not the case with the charming single family home in South Harlem. We have been keeping our eye out on the $1.59 million brownstone since it went on the market five months ago and thought it surely would get some sort of offer that would work out for the seller. The house is on a small lot with not much of a back yard, but the location is only a block away from Morningside Park and the B,C train at 116th Street. So what gives?

  1. This will sell when matched with the right buyer who appreciates this beautifully restored house and who is ready to make this their home. The seller may wish to include some of the furnishings as they where carefully collected over time for these rooms and may not work as well elsewhere.

  2. What's up with Wild Olive Market? Details, anyone?

  3. The home looks beautiful but I keep hearing that there is a lot of blatant drug dealing around 116 and the park. Someone was murdered just this past Saturday. Maybe the buyer got cold feet. Something really needs to be done about the drug dealing - it has the potential to slow down commercial and residential progress up here.
