☞ DWELL: 235 West 136th Street Brownstone

The 16 foot wide townhouse at 235 West 136th Street has been on the market a couple of weeks and the SRO status building has some good and bad things going for it.  First of all, the block between FDB/8th Avenue and ACP/7th Avenue at this part of the village is definitely quite charming.  All of the townhouses are intact and not really a shell in sight. Also, subway access is only an avenue and a half over in either direction at 135th Street and there's even a Certificate of Non Harassment in place.  So the big issue here would be converting this chopped up building (that doesn't have any interior photos to show) into a single or 2-family home.  As far as amenities, the general area still doesn't have too much going on so it's a purely residential block.  At the initial asking of $995K, it will be interesting to see what the townhouse finally goes for.  Thoughts on an SRO at this price range?

  1. Too much. Maybe $750k? But would need to see the interior to know. An SRO interior probably requires more than some wall relocations...
