☞ DWELL: 221 West 138th Street Townhouse

The landmark Strivers' Row on 138th Street (between FDB/8th Avenue and ACP/7th Avenue) has another house recently placed on the market. Number 221 West 138th Street is a corner building, 20 x 56 foot wide (on a 30 x 99 foot lot!), has that former-carriage yard-side-parking set up and is currently asking for $1.49 million. Overall, the two-family house has 3,894 square foot of space, 5 bedrooms, two baths, a half bath and a legal commercial ground floor space. The block is peaceful and tree-lined with a couple of restaurants that have recently opened on the ACP/7th Avenue side in the past years but not too much is happening as far as amenities. The B,C train at 135th Street and St. Nicholas Park is a good 5 minute walk away. Facade photo by Ulysses
