Description
TIMELESS CONVENT TOWNHOUSE. It is said that an old home has a story to tell but keep in mind, it always welcomes a new chapter. Our stunning 4-story, 19 foot wide Renaissance Revival brick and brownstone townhouse is ideally located in the Hamilton Heights Historic District. There's 4160 square feet of interior living space in which to create your dream home, with 4+ Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, 8 fireplaces and a private patio. While legally a 2-family, it's always been occupied by one family, with only a few owners since 1984 when it was built by the famous team of Neville & Bragge. Authentic architectural details include meticulously preserved fireplace mantels, inlaid oak parquet and floors, oversize pocket doors, 10 and 11-foot high ceilings, and delicately decorated original plaster ceilings. Original moldings, intricate cabinetry, decorative wainscotting, and oversized windows throughout add to the character and appeal of this special home. 1st floor: Informal, garden-level entry leads to a front dining room, originally for staff, joined to the kitchen in the rear via a butler's pantry. The kitchen has a large pantry, original wall standing cabinets and a walk-in cedar closet. The serving pantry and dumbwaiter were typical of the period, an essential connection between kitchen and dining area upstairs. The dumbwaiter rises all the way to the top floor. Double-glass doors lead out to a private garden patio with built-in planters and good sunlight from the west. 2nd floor: Formal entry welcomes you into a grand foyer and Parlor, preserved in every detail. As noted in Michael Henry Adam's Harlem Lost and Found ..."352 Convent's foyer exhibits particularly appealing qualities of the architects work: spiraling baroque balusters complement the robust newel post with its bulbous finial. Daintily cusped, the Near East-inspired spindle work archway is an effective means for delineating the more private areas of the house, complete with a convenient stand and lidded seat for putting on and storing overshoes, the towering coat tree has its original double hooks. Still more rare is the original pendant lantern reflected into infinity by mirrors in the hall and parlor". 11' ceilings. Original wooden sliding pocket doors separate the foyer from the hallway and the library in the rear. Both grand rooms have original tiled and wooden crowned decorative fireplaces and 11' ceilings. The enfilade of rooms were originally used for family and guest entertainment purposes and could closed off or opened as needed. 3rd floor: Bedrooms, features two grand rooms connected by private dressing rooms, and a private bath in the rear with its' own decorative fireplace and stained glass windows. 10' ceilings. 4th floor: 2 more bedrooms with personal sinks in the closets, and 2 home office/study or den rooms. Both bathrooms have sky lights. There's a roof deck over the house extension below that could be utilized with proper decking. 10' ceilings. Cellar: 7'6' foot ceilings and could be finished for recreational use, currently operational for mechanicals, storage and laundry. Convent Avenue is one of the most beautiful, tranquil, quiet and picturesque streets in Hamilton Heights in a landmarked neighborhood with deep-rooted history and style.
