☞ DWELL: 116 West 118th Street Townhouse

Up on the market since last month, the townhouse at 116 West 118th Street has some great details inside and out.  The 20 foot wide, limestone building is divided up into a 3-family SRO layout and has about 5,200 square foot total.  An initial asking price is about $1.4 million but what's unclear is the condition of the kitchens and bathrooms.  Seeing that there are not any photos to be had, they probably need some work. Location wise, the block is tree-lined and is nicely intact with an array of barrel front brownstones. Although technically not part of the Mt. Morris Park Historic District, this particular block is just on the perimeter and the housing stock is comparable to the landmark areas. The 2,3 express in only 2 blocks away at 116th Street and some great cafes are just around the corner. Has anyone seen the rest of this house?

  2. I've called the broker twice, and emailed, but he hasn't returned my calls... I wonder if this is seriously for sale.

  3. No CofO. Assume $250K just to get a cofo, thats assuming everything is to code. Unfortunately, the inspectors will probably need to open the walls to check. I you need to rebuild the systems, it could cost $1M. Price indicates the latter.
