☞ DWELL: The Langston Hughes House

Harlem Bespoke was able to get some interior shots of the Langston Hughes House today during the first open house for this historic estate. The well worn door with the gold number 20 greeted visitors in the foyer and the carved stairwell that followed intimated the details to be discovered inside. All the original plaster moulding on the walls and ceilings are intact along with several marble fireplaces. There are many water closets, one master bath with the original clawfoot tub and not much of any kitchen since the house was converted into an SRO in the past but the layouts seems intact as originally planned. At 1.2 million, it seem like a great opportunity for the right buyer especially since there's probably room to negotiate. The brownstone is located on a tree-lined block on 127th Street, right off of 5th Avenue and a short distance from the 2,3 train on 125th Street and 135th Street. Click on images to enlarge.
