This gorgeous 2-family home is your perfect opportunity to own a piece of history on the hot, up-and-coming Harlem "Strivers' Row."

Built in 1899 by David H. King, Jr., original details abound throughout the home. The wood staircase, 4 fireplaces, 2 skylights, wood floors and high ceilings are intrinsic details in the Strivers' Row homes designed in 1891 by Bruce Price and Clarence S. Luce.

The main home has 3 floors, with 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths on the upper 2 floors. The master suite on the second floor (currently used as a media room) has a fireplace, marble tiled bath with spa shower and skylight. The main floor has a living room and sitting room, both with fireplaces, a den or dining room and kitchen. There are 2 decks, an upper and lower, off the back of the kitchen, just right for grilling, entertaining and dining al fresco. The upper deck also has a privacy fence, perfect for a romantic evening.

The apartment/maid's quarters on the ground floor has a separate front-entrance from the main home. It has 1 bedroom with an office, living room, kitchen and bathroom. There is also an entrance to a back patio under the lower deck of the main home.

To top it all off, there is your own 2-car garage at the back entrance to the home! This is very rare and highly desired!

The home in total has approximately 3,640 sq.ft. The lot size is 17 x 99. This elegant diamond in the rough is your ideal chance to get in before it too becomes out of reach.
