Number 401 Manhattan Avenue by 117th Street arrived on the market this past September for just under $2.8 million and now has been reduced to $2.495 million.  The single-family home that was restored by the Victorian curator of the MET before a new owner purchased the townhouse back in 2010 still has the original color scheme which is more historically accurate than the white walls found more frequently in modern townhouses.  With two working fireplaces, original details and a whole lot of charm, this jewel box of a home really stands out amongst the bland interiors in a typical listing.  The location of the 18-foot-wide house is also right by the FDB commercial corridor, Morningside Park and the 116th Street subway stop.  With all that said, the basement and garden areas are still bit lackluster but should be a pretty easy fix.  More on the broker site: LINK
