$2,895,000 253 West 138th Street, New York, NY 10030
Welcome to 253 West 138th Street, a 20 foot wide Georgian-style townhouse ideally located in the heart of the St. Nicholas Historic District, also known as Strivers' Row. Very rarely do corner, triple-exposure homes come to market on the renowned block, frequently referred to as the best block in Harlem.
This colonial revival style home was designed by the late Bruce Price and Clarence S. Luce in 1891. The turn of the century townhouse is currently positioned as a multi-family asset. It consists of five free market rentals with two studios, two one-bedrooms and one two bedroom, all of which are currently held on flexible lease terms in order to accommodate future redevelopment opportunities. The home was recently renovated and benefits from all new systems throughout, but there is still long-term potential for a new owner to add value.
This property is ideally located just a short walk from the 2/3 subway line on Lenox Avenue and the C and B subway lines on Saint Nicholas Avenue, offering you the opportunity to access Midtown Manhattan effortlessly. In the heart of central Harlem, Strivers' Row remains as one of the most desirable places to purchase uptown. This property benefits from its proximity to major academic institutions, such as Columbia University and its Manhattanville Expansion Project and City College of New York.
Inquire for investor set up. Please verify square footage with architect. This is a co-listing with B6 Real Estate Advisors.
