☞ DWELL: 123 West 118th Street Townhouse

OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, September 30th, 2:00PM-4:00PM.  There's not too many new houses showing on the market this weekend but the 20-foot-wide limestone townhouse at 123 West 118th Street is definitely worth revisiting for those who value original details.  Almost everything seems to be intact in the roughly 5,000-square-foot, 3-family home but it appears it all needs to have a few updates. Fortunately all of the wood does not have paint on it and the bathroom is one of the most complete ones we have seen Harlem (the bath floors are obviously not original and we would probably just replace them with marble hex tiles).  There's quite a bit of work that needs to be done here for the asking price of $2.695 million but the Mount Morris Historic District is one of the best neighborhoods in Harlem when it comes to architecture, shop proximity and express transportation.

  1. Saw it earlier in the summer. Way, way overpriced -- needs at least $1M worth of work. Owner still has many many many decades worth of belongings in the house so it's tough to appreciate that it's 5000sf or to envision the renovation.

  2. Beautiful block. I swing by it when running errands.
