DWELL: MAYA ANGELOU'S HARLEM HOME
Mount Morris Park Historic District and Marcus Samuelsson is one of the nearby neighbors. This 20-foot wide townhouse is more ornate than most on the facade with dramatically detailed bay windows. Whole Foods is also finishing up by the express subway station just a few blocks away but how does everything look within the gut renovated interior?
Brick arches in the finished basement along with several decorative fireplaces allude to the history of the interior but the rest is pretty straightforward with modern, mint condition upgrades including central air. There is even an elevator within and a functioning dumbwaiter to make things easy to get up and down the various floors. Most home buyers renovate the kitchen and baths to their taste so those areas are probably the ones that will be updated first once the house has been purchase. With great bones, history and a prime location by Whole Foods, this landmark might just beat out the current record holder up on Convent Avenue.
