The Wall Street Journal has an article on a West Harlem townhouse up for sale and how the current owner renovated the interior with family living in mind. Number 626 West 147th Street was purchased by a downtown finance executive who wanted to move away from her Battery Park home after September 11th back in 2001. Purchasing the house for $600K, the homeowner raised her son in the townhouse and currently lives in the space with her mother. About $1.3 million was spent in restoring the building which has a marble bathroom modeled after the ones found at Claridge's in London. The townhouse is going for $1.875 million now which is just about breaking even for the owner who is moving back to Long Island to be closer with family since her son has moved out of the house: LINK.
