Number 461 West 143rd Street had a contract out whithin 3 weeks when the Hamilton Heights townhouse arrived on the market in Spring and now has closed for the exact asking price of $3.1 million.  This is now then the current record for West Harlem and the fact that it is located in beautiful historic district right below Sugar Hill probably made a big difference along with all of the original details inside.  The former record in The Heights was at $2.625 million by 529 West 142nd Street which was set in 2013.

Hamilton Heights is really catching up with what South Harlem homes are selling for because the restorations look more contextual and have a lot of original details which are important to the upper tier brownstone buyer.  The word is out also that many better business are opening up around the 140s because of more affordable rents and also lack of competition.  Any location in West Harlem that is around a 5 minute walk to the express train at 145th Street also benefits because those lines get one to midtown within 10 minutes or so.  More interior photos on the broker site: LINK


  1. Wow, hard to believe. Gorgeous house, this area around Convent is stunning. Prices have shot up a lot in just the last few years.

  2. Still a great deal to the buyer when you think about how much space they are getting in a neighborhood with some really great spots and new ones opening every day. I think 3.5mm plus could easily be pushed for a 20 foot wide brownstone with the back extension in Mt Morris or Hamilton Heights provided a high end contextual renovation with original detail
