There's not a lot going on with open houses this weekend but an interesting listing has just appeared on the market. The former home of Ralph Ellison at 749 St. Nicholas Avenue and 147th Street has now gone up for sale at the asking price of $1.9 million. This townhouse is the center building of a trio that appears to have been designed by the same architect but the Ellison house seems to have lost the bay window portion at some point in time. Apparently the multi-family building has quite a few units in it which the broker fails to clarify and the property is 19-foot-wide in total. A gut renovation of the interior came about a few years ago but everything is pretty much renter grade based on what we can tell from photos. More details and photos can be found on Streeteasy: LINK
