☞ DWELL: 887 St. Nicholas Avenue Townhouse

OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, October 16th, 1:00 PM-3:00 PM.  The mansard semi-detached house at 887 St. Nicholas Avenue has always been one of the more unique properties on the upper reaches of Harlem and it appears to have been a fraternity house at some point in time.  A worn exterior rich in detail hints to the condition of the interior for this 3-family building.  So what should one expect for the $1.595 asking price? More photos after the jump.

At 22 foot wide, the building just north of 154th Street has generous proportions and reportedly 4,576 square foot of space. Most of the details appears to be intact but the exterior and interior will definitely need a major renovation to get everything updated once more.  The building is actually in the Sugar Hill Landmark District and many of its neighbors have distinct architecture. With that said, the property itself faces a lot that will have a children's museum on it one day but not much is going on with the site currently. More photos and information via Streeteasy: LINK
