Historic Harlem Mansion in the famed Mount Morris Park Historic District designed by James E. Ware is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to live in 8,000 square feet of NYC real estate teaming with rich, ornate design and cultural significance. Built in 1888 with recent restorations, the home reflects the old-world craftsmanship and charm of a renaissance period blended with modern features in all the right places. A grand 25’ wide entrance welcomes you into the most spacious and elegant living environments. Experience nostalgia and beauty in the main living room from the exquisite design of 16’-high molded ceilings and intricate wood flooring, and feel a sense of pride as you invite your guests into a similarly adorned dining room displaying coffered ceilings and tall windows that overlook the brick-paved lower garden. This charming courtyard flows into the recently renovated kitchen with its abundance of counter space and state-of-the-art appliances in which to prepare lavish meals or break bread with family and friends in its intimate, cozy sunlit en-suite parlor. Comprising a generous 10 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 half-baths, wood-burning fireplaces galore, the main ensuite features its own walk-in closet, dressing room, and large wood-burning fireplace. The uppermost floor with the fully-equipped kitchen acts as a separate unit making this property the perfect setting for either a single family or for extended corporate stays from out of town, or can even be ideal for an embassy. A brief stroll to Lenox Avenue and beyond takes you to unique storefronts, fabulous cafes and restaurants, a Wholefoods supermarket, and many parks, as well as to iconic places frequented by artists and activists who embodied the spirit of the “Harlem Renaissance.” This exquisite, spacious one-of-a-kind home is a rare find in the heart of Harlem’s most historic district.
