Designed and constructed in 1885 by one of the most prominent rowhouse architects, John C. Burn, 113 West 122nd Street is a handsome Neo-Grec brownstone in the heart of the Mount Morris Park Historic District. The tall wide stoop is flanked by two impressive newel posts at the base, and at the top, an entryway adorned by two columns framing an original solid mahogany door (crafted in 1882 and in outstanding condition). The front-facing windows feature bracketed brownstone lintels and sills with incised details. At twenty-feet (20 ) wide, this home offers comfortable living spaces for each of the three (3) apartments within. PARLOR, GROUND, and SUB BASEMENT The owner s unit (Unit 1) is accessed on the parlor floor through the main entryway. This loft-like level has ceilings at 11 2 and is a perfect place to entertain. The open kitchen features a large island with a breakfast bar. There is a Wolf 6-burner cooktop with downdraft ventilation that brings the air to the outside. The stainless steel refrigerator is by Fisher & Paykel and a very quiet dishwasher by Bosch. The large dining area can sit 10-12 guests comfortably, while the living room s two oversized windows face onto West 122nd Street bring in southern sunlight all day long. Off of the kitchen, a door leads you to the large back deck and a staircase that leads you to the private garden. There is also a powder room on the parlor floor as well. Downstairs, there is a guest bedroom facing south, a full bathroom in the hallway, and an en-suite master bedroom facing the garden. The entire ground floor has plenty of closet space and direct access to the sub-basement which features a windowed library/den, walk-in-closets, storage, and a laundry room, all dedicated to Unit 1. Outside, the current owners have created a beautiful sanctuary garden with large planters, in-laid stone work, and all types of plants and flowers including evergreens, crape myrtles, hibiscus, lilies and raspberry canes. It is also not uncommon to see bluebirds, cardinals, and orioles stop by for a morning tweet! This garden is also very unique because on the adjoining property line to the back, sits one of the nicest community gardens in Harlem which recently underwent a full renovation. Needless to say, the back of the house gets tons of light, open sky, and privacy. THIRD FLOOR In the common hall, there is a washer-dryer which is for use of the two rental apartments. Unit 2 is a floor-through, one-bedroom apartment with 10 3 ceilings, an open kitchen, separate dining area, large bathroom, and a great deal of storage. Translucent shoji-inspired glass panels allow natural light to fill the living space. FOURTH FLOOR Unit 3 is a slightly larger floor-through apartment with 10 9 ceilings, an open kitchen, separate dining area, a dedicated home office nook, and two (2) bedrooms. All apartments are free-market and can be delivered vacant or occupied. MORE INFO The building was originally gut-renovated in 2001 and all mechanicals, plumbing, and wiring were modernized. In 2013, it was converted to a three-family under the guidance of Robert Arthur King, FAIA. The common staircase is made of steel, and the front, back, and top of the home are all insulated. There is sound-proofing between Units 1 and 2. Certificate of Occupancy on file with the Department of Buildings. This is an exciting opportunity for end-users and investors alike, to get one of the widest homes on one of the best blocks in the neighborhood. Call today for a private tour.
