☞ DWELL: 10 Sylvan Terrace

OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, September 18th, By Appointment.  The Washington Heights historic street of Sylvan Terrace is just north of Harlem but is worth taking a look at because its unique architecture. Number 10 Sylvan Terrace was on the market last year for the asking of $895K but now has been reduced to $799K.  The single family homes are on a private Belgian stone street that faces the Morris Jumel Mansion.  Interior photos after the jump.

The houses are all on relatively modest at 19.5 foot wide but on more shallow lots than the standard townhouse. This building is apparently a 2-family but there is only 1,425 square foot altogether. There's still not too much happening at the heights but the train station is just a couple of blocks away.  Appointments and more details at the broker site: LINK

  1. I live on Sylvan Terrace. #10 is a 1 family home. The Morris Jumel Mansion, The Malcolm Shabazz cultural center and the resturants on Broadway are in walking distance. These beautiful infromative locations and the variety of locations to eat and have a glass of wine are the "happenings" going on. Our neighborhood is changing for the better, and is more affordable to reside then lower and central Harlem. It took lower and central Harlem over 30 years to get it together, hopefully it won't take the Heights that long, but change is here. Also, the subway "C" line is less then 100 feet away at 161st Street, and buses downtown are the M2, M3, M100 & 101. The M4 & M5 run on Broadway. FYI
