Make your dreams come true...Imagine your townhouse home on a secret street of historic row houses where the past meets the present. This amazing 3 story, 2 Bed, 2 bath home is in move in condition with private outdoor space. It has been thoughtfully reimaged with the modern conveniences for today's living with stylish renovated finishes that allows you a perfect setting for casual living with elegant intimate entertaining. Sylvan Terrace is one of New York City's hidden secrets. Twenty wood framed 19th century row houses line the street. It was originally the carriage drive to the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest home in Manhattan. Some fun facts, General George Washington used this house as his temporary headquarters during the Revolutionary War and more recently, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote part of his award winning musical, Hamilton, here. From the attractive street stoop, you enter the more formal of the two entertaining spaces; both spaces invite use for luxurious living, entertaining, and relaxation. At the parlor level, you are welcomed with nearly 11 ft ceilings and stained glass doors into a side by side warm and bright entertaining area. Separated by beautiful pocket doors, you enjoy a formal living room and library/media room, plus a full bath in the hallway. For more casual living, the garden level is down a lovely mahogany staircase or you may enter directly into your home from under the stoop. The open concept living offers you the opportunity to enjoy gathering time in a generously sized gourmet kitchen.
