Located in the Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Historic District adjacent to Convent Avenue, this townhouse is a perfect property for a residential buyer with vision or a well-informed investor.
Built in 1890 by John Leo, this Queen Anne five-floor (plus cellar) townhome retains its original faade but internally is currently a shell, and thus is ready for creative vision. While the current Certificate of Occupancy is for a 9-Family property, there are already NYC Department of Buildings-approved plans in place for conversion of the house to an elegant Two-Family home comprising an Owner 3-bedroom quadruplex with roof deck and Parlor level deck, and an income-producing Garden apartment.
419 W 146th St is situated in a desirable area which includes Columbia University, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, City College and the Hamilton Grange National Memorial. For outdoor recreation, the property is adjacent to Riverside Park, Jackie Robinson Park and St. Nicholas Park. The house is also ideally located for shopping at the 145th St and St. Nicholas Avenue commercial centers. The 145th St subway station is a block away, and is served by the A, B, C and D local and express trains to midtown Manhattan.
Please note that this is NOT an SRO property, and as such obtaining permits for renovation will be straightforward. Please also note that this house has a distinctive and elegant exterior - the buyer will have a unique opportunity to create a wonderful residential home, or an income-producing rental investment property.
We recommend that potential buyers bring their architect and contractor when visiting. The Interior and roof of the property will require renovation. This house has outstanding potential.
