☞ DWELL: Highest Priced Harlem Home for 2012

Number 181 Lenox Avenue has been on the market since last November for the increased asking price of $3.99 million. This 25-foot wide landmark corner townhouse at Lenox and 119th Street used to be the Indigo Arms bed and breakfast but is technically a 3-famiy townhouse with reportedly 8,500 square foot of space. That's basically $470 per square foot for a renovated building but buyers do not seem to be interested at this price tag since townhouse sales in Harlem have only reached the $3 million mark this past year.  With that said, this is an unusually large house with a vacant ground floor storefront in a convenient historic district so this might eventually be a record breaker in the future.  More details on Streeteasy: LINK


  1. It is a HUGE building.

  2. And it's on the corner so it has light on three sides... no idea if the price is likely to be met, though.
