☞ DWELL: 470 West 148th Street Townhouse

OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, February 27th, 1:30PM-3:00 PM. The townhouse at 470 West 148th Street (between Amsterdam and Convent) has been on the market for a couple of years now and maybe 2011 will finally sell this west Harlem home. It's basically the left half of the building in the top photo so the 12.5 foot width is quite narrow and is meant only for a single family to reside in. There's about 2,752 square foot of space overall with some details intact but when the house was first up for about $1.4 million in 2009, nothing really happened.  Prices were lowered that year until it was pulled off the market at $999K for most of 2010.  It's now back and the price is starting at $995K at this part of Hamilton Heights that has enough charm to it but not too much going on in the immediate block.  The express train is a couple of blocks east so traveling about seems to be okay for this one.

  1. My partner and I put on an offer on this place for 850 around July of 2009. Thank god they didn’t except it, as I am quite happy where we ended up, but I have always wondered what happened to the place. Someone tried to fix this place up but did everything incorrectly. Terrible tile job, pieced together wood work. The stairs look nice in pictures but in person it’s a different story. There listing agent said they had hired someone to do repairs but they had to let him go because of his poor craftsmanship. Our contractor said it would take between 350 and 400k to fix this place up. I do remember really liking the garden and the original kitchen tiles. I think if they ever lower the price to something more reasonable this could make somebody a nice home.
