Welcome to 128 W 138th St, also known as Holstein Court! Built in 1929 and first known as Liberty Hall, it was later acquired and developed as a residential building by Casper Holstein, a legendary Harlem gambling king and Harlem Renaissance philanthropist, who was dubbed "Harlem's Favorite Hero" by the NY Times for his many generous contributions to artistic and educational causes, in New York and the world beyond.Today, Holstein Court is an excellently managed, maintained and financially sound HDFC co-operative, with a live-in super, renovated elevator and laundry room, and an elegant lobby and outdoor community courtyard.
SPECIAL NOTE: even with today's rising mortgage rates - due to Holstein Ct's location in a "moderate income zone" and special programs for first-time homebuyers - there IS the possibility for SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER MORTGAGE RATES than what you may be seeing in the news. Please check in for additional information! (At this point, we return to the regularly scheduled program)...Apartment 6E is on the top floor, facing north, with excellent light and neighborhood and skyline views. Fully and beautifully renovated, it's a very comfortable and livable space, featuring a modern kitchen with new appliances and excellent cabinet space, open to the dining area and living room.The elegant marble and windowed bathroom is off the center hallway, leading to the large bedroom. Plenty of room for a queen-sized bed (currently in place!), and with more intelligently designed closet space than in many apartments twice its size.Located next-door to the historic Abyssinian Baptist Church, Holstein Court is close to St. Nicholas Park, City College, the B,C and 2,3 subways, Harlem Hospital, the Schomburg Center, the Harlem YMCA fitness center, and iconic Harlem favorites like Red Rooster, Ponty Bistro, Harlem Hops, and the 125th shopping corridor, as well.Due to its HDFC designation, Holstein Court is subject to 120% AMI income restrictions and must be your primary residence. 2022 income caps are $112,080 for one person, $128,160 for two.
