Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
The house at 470 West 148th Street has been on and off the market for the past couple of years but went into contract this past July. This single-family abode takes up the left half of the building and the 12.5 foot wide property was initially listed at $1.4 million. Prices were lowered over the following years until the Hamilton Heights townhouse went into contract at $957K. So what was the final selling price of this narrow building in West Harlem?
With 2,752 square foot of space overall and a few restored details intact, the property located between Amsterdam and Convent Avenue is in a purely residential block but has a touch of charm. Express trains are not to far over towards the east so getting around is not too much of a problem. At the end of the day, the house sold for a total of $915K after deal finally closed last month.
