☞ DWELL: 156 West 132nd Street Townhouse
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, August 29th, 1:00 PM-3:00 PM. There was a narrow open lot a couple of years back at 156 West 132nd Street, between ACP/7th and Lenox, but today, a new brownstone building sits on the formerly abandoned site. The new 3-story, 2,340 square foot townhouse is not entirely historically accurate but trying to get a 2-family building (two 2-bedroom duplexes) out of a 12 foot wide building must provided a lot of design challenges. The interior has pretty moderate grade finishes but actually done in a non offensive way. The only questionable design choice would be the exposed gas meters at the front and the less than accurate entrance door. Location wise, it's only 3 blocks to the Lenox 2,3 express train at 135th Street (as recently noted) but the block still has that one shell to the left side of the building. The asking price is currently at $999K. Thoughts?
