A newly revamped townhouse with an ultra-sleek look

Share this Article

Thanks to a recent renovation, this East Harlem townhouse has an especially fresh and gleaming look. The triplex is listed by Douglas Elliman at $3 million, which is pushing it for the neighborhood—other nearby homes don’t crack the $3 mil mark. But buyers seeking the sleek ambiance that the revamped interiors deliver may be tempted regardless. 

On the main floor, you’ll find an open plan living/dining room with glossy blonde wood floors and a fireplace set in a black marble façade. There’s recessed lighting as well, plus both south- and north-facing windows to bathe the space in sunlight. And the living room opens onto a 1,300 square foot roof deck—although it’s not pictured here, so it may not be photo-ready yet (or looking a bit rough).

The open kitchen includes an island with Caesar stone countertops, and is decked out with the high-quality appliances one might expect from a new renovation, like a Wolf range and Miele dishwasher.

On the top floor, the master bedroom boasts an en-suite bath with a custom vanity and deep soaking tub, plus a separate, glassed-in shower. A second bedroom, while sizable, may be better suited as a home office, as it appears a bit short on closet space.

At the ground level, you’ll find a third bedroom and second bathroom; neither are pictured here, so potential buyers should investigate further.  An interesting component of the space is the massive garage off the second bedroom: Here, you’ll find a washer and dryer, and with 58-feet-by-22-feet of space, there’s potential for conversion to a screening or rec room. Or it could be used for that rarest of things in Manhattan: parking.

This all comes with the additional amenities of Bose surround sound throughout the house, security cameras, and an electronic skylight system—as well as a price tag that’s a touch hefty for the neighborhood.
