☞ DWELL: 115 West 119th Street Brownstone

The renovated house at 115 West 119th Street has been reappearing on the market for the past couple of years and has arrived again as of last month with an asking of $2.195 million (the house was set at $2.65 million in 2008).  We saw this 18 foot wide home a couple of years back at the Mount Morris Park Historic District House Tour and it had very contemporary finishing to the kitchen and lighting but the plasterwork and wood was all intact on the walls.

The top two rental floors are apparently going for a combined total rent roll of $5,100 total each month which is separate from the lower owner's duplex. Square footage is somewhere around 3,122 but the old estimates do not often include the lower level. The one caveat here is checking up on the C of O which appears to be a little vague. Boutique shops are around the corner on Lenox and the express trains are a short walk away. More details at the broker site: LINK


  1. I was never a fan of the mini over window awnings, but they look very effective on the neighboring property.

  2. The awnings are very classic, even though today they're unpopular. Look at the photos from the 1920s and 30s. Every building in Harlem had window awnings. It's what the buildings were meant to look like.

  3. Pre-airconditioning.
