☞ DWELL: Langston Hughes House Still on Market
LINK. At 20 foot wide, the townhouse has generous proportions and retains a lot of its original details. Some major issues would be the chopped up nature of the SRO status building (is there a Certificate of Non Harassment?) and the fact that the infrastructure will need a complete overhaul since everything is severely old or below grade.
In 2010, the house switched hands from an obscure broker to one just slightly less so but buyers are either not into the new price tag or just can't find the listing. There hasn't been any contract action since Sotheby's took over the property last summer but the new price of $1 million seems to have attracted some interest. We actually have received a couple request to see the house sent to our inbox since the listing is apparently difficult to locate. So maybe 2011 will be a better year for the landmark home and here's the direct link to the Sotheby's listing for those who are looking: LINK.
