Completed in 1890 for one of Manhattan’s most distinctive townhouse rows, this Tudor Revival has preserved much of its original interior detail, with newly renovated wood floors freshly laid throughout the primary bedroom level. Standing 20' wide and rising five stories from garden-to-roof, 327 Convent Avenue is ready to comfortably host all your people in style. The uncommonly deep landscaped front garden is a quiet transition from sidewalk to the broad, quarter-turn stoop. The parlor floor includes living room, formal dining room with open kitchen, full bathroom, and central gallery at the foot of an impressive sky-lit stair. 11-foot ceilings, original parquet floors with mahogany inlay, foldaway window shutters, and massive pocket doors remain throughout. On the garden level, a stand-alone apartment opens to the sunny backyard, with a spacious laundry & storage room adjacent to the front under-stoop entrance. A brand new wood floor has just been laid throughout the home’s entire third level. The townhouse’s impressive inheritance of original woodwork completes the third floor, with original window woodwork, moldings, and carved mantlepieces. Striking floor-to-ceiling cabinetry is re-hung in the dual-primary bedroom’s connected dressing rooms. The fourth floor was more recently updated with a three bedrooms, full bathroom, laundry closet, the topmost of the home’s six fireplaces, and a full kitchen. The fifth floor "sunroom" is currently a bright bedroom suite with door-way roof access, perfectly prepared for a stunning deck in the future. Designed by Adolph Houk with a striking Tudor-style pitched roofline and half-timbered façade, the residence stands within the Hamilton Heights Historic District; around the corner from the Hamilton Grange mansion and City College's fairytale gothic stonework. The leafy, hill-top neighborhood has a relaxed, almost "college-town" feel, packed with energetic restaurants, cafes, and convenient amenities. With its impressive size, extensive 19th century detail, fresh updates, and unexpectedly contemporary rooftop penthouse, no. 327 offers a rare opportunity to create a timeless 21st Century home on one of Manhattan’s most historic blocks.
