Mt. Morris Park West Townhouse, Estate of the Day
Today's home is one of the most expensive townhouses in New York City's Harlem area. The five-story residence was built in 1889 by James E. Ware who also designed the Osborn co-op on West 57th Street. The 25-foot-wide home has seven bedrooms, nine fireplaces and two kitchens (one on the first floor and one on the fifth floor). The bottom two floors are shared living space, the middle two floors are given over to bedrooms and the top floor has a large great room and dining area. For outdoor space it has a back yard and a large roof terrace. The home has been beautifully restored maintaining the dark wood moldings, original fireplaces and wainscoting. This home has been listed at $7.995 million since last fall, a number that some of Curbed's commenters think is far too high. What say you?
