Enjoy the summer in a lovingly restored Harlem family Brownstone in one of the most sought after locations in Manhattan’s Mount Morris Historic District. The parlor floor features an open floor plan and is full of original architectural details and modern amenities, with a living room, dining room, and a large open-concept fully equiped chef's kitchen with adjacent pantry / laundry room and powder room. The kitchen opens up onto a south facing garden / backyard area, perfect for outdoor dining on the back deck. Grill on the propane Weber grill or just enjoy sitting in the quiet garden in the heart of the city. The second floor features a large, south-facing main bedroom with a king sized bed and large walk-in closet. The ensuite bath has a large pre war era tub and shower. Down the hall on this floor is a beautiful bay windowed family room looking out on the tree-lined brownstone block. The family room also has a full bathroom, a piano, desk, and smart television. The third floor is filled with light that floods in from three large skylights, and has two smaller children’s bedrooms, one with a full sized bed and the other with bunk beds. Both rooms feature garden and rooftop views from their windows. Down the hall is another bathroom with a clawfoot tub, and also a large playroom perfect for families with children. This room additionally could easily be used as another bedroom. The house is centrally located for you to enjoy the very best of summer in New York City. Just one block from Marcus Garvey Park, a summer park scene filled with grassy lawns, and music, dance and theater performances at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater all summer long. Another favorite summer activity is swimming in the recently renovated Marcus Garvey outdoor city pool inside this park. Three blocks in the other direction, nestled right below Columbia University campus, is Morningside Park. Enjoy one of the three newly built playgrounds, basketball courts, soccer and baseball fields or just go and watch turtles and geese in the pond. Ten blocks south and you are in Central Park at the Harlem Meir. The house is also surrounded by amazing restaurants with outdoor dining, independent coffee shops, artisanal ice cream parlors and bakeries on Lenox Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. There are many grocery options, including a Whole Foods just 5 blocks away on 125th Street.
