Number 357 West 121st Street went on the market this past spring and closed in August at the highest record sale of 2012 for Harlem. The 16-foot-wide, 2-family home has a solid South Harlem location that is right around the corner from Morningside Park, close to the FDB retail corridor and a short walk distance to the express trains at 125th Street. Renovated interiors that update the infrastructure but keep the character of the original home probably helped find the right buyer also. According to public records, the house sold over the asking price of $2.85 million and finally closed for a cool $3 million. Unless another brownstone sale closes in the next couple of weeks, number 357 West 121st Street will keep the title as the highest selling townhouse for the year.
