Welcome to an exceptionally rare corner landmark limestone at 381 Convent Avenue. This Romanesque Revival townhouse was designed by Henri Fouchaux and built in 1893 by John M Cahill. Situated on the gold coast of historic Hamilton Heights, this 3,200 square ft 4 story beauty is a legal two family being utilized as a one family.
When entering the home on the parlor floor through the foyer you are taken by the massive double parlor with decorative fireplaces that boast high ceilings and wide windows allowing for eastern & southern exposure with bay windows on both sides. The central stairs split the house beautifully, highlighting multiple exposures in most of the bedrooms, living spaces and kitchen.
The central stair leads you down into the eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, bathroom and garden and up to the living quarters where you will find the master bedroom and (4) more bedrooms, 2 full baths and washer/ dryer room.
The property boasts 5 decorative fireplaces and a skylight which provides wonderful natural light above the stairs. On the market for the first time in almost 2 decades, this home represents a rare opportunity to purchase a unique limestone with a private intimate lush garden.
Located near the A, B, C, D and 1 trains as well as Riverbank State Park, Jackie Robinson Park and a host of restaurants and shops along trendy W. 145th Street. Showings by appointment only.
