The uppermost reaches of Upper Manhattan may have only recently come onto the radar of many New Yorkers, but its rich history dates back to before the Revolutionary War. Washington Heights is home to Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest house in the borough and a National Historic Landmark as well as a New York City landmark inside and out. It was built in 1765 by Roger Morris, a British officer who served on the Executive Council of the Province of New York. General George Washington used the house as temporary headquarters after the Battle of Long Island in 1776, and other visitors have included John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and John Quincy Adams. Centuries later, local luminary Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote part of the Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton there.
French merchant Stephen Jumel remodeled the mansion with a Federal-style entrance and Empire-style interiors following his 1810 purchase, and a 1945 renovation and refurnishing was its last significant update. Indeed, the 1970 designation of the Jumel Terrace Historic District keeps this historic stretch looking much as it did centuries ago. The mansion’s grounds were subdivided in 1882 to form a stretch of houses and a carriage path known as Sylvan Terrace, and Landmarks would later restore the historic rowhouses. A stone’s throw away, a three-story townhouse at 422 West 160th Street dates back to 1910, and its historic exterior remains beautifully preserved in the wake of a meticulous expansion and gut renovation to condos. The converted building has been named Jumel Mansion Condominiums in honor of its historic setting, and sales have just launched on the apartments within.
The apartments comprise a pair of two-bedroom units, a two-bedroom garden apartment with private backyard, and a one-bedroom penthouse with a private terrace. All units feature high ceilings, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, split system heating and air conditioning, video intercom, and in-unit Electrolux washer/dryer. Gourmet kitchens are outfitted with KitchenAid appliances, stylish cabinetry, white quartzite countertops, and breakfast bars. The bedrooms have views of Morris-Jumel Mansion, and closets outfitted with custom shelving systems may render the basement storage superfluous.
The Morris-Jumel Mansion is not the only local history close to Jumel Mansion Condos; Paul Robeson’s residence, another New York City landmark, is a few doors away. It also benefits from having Coogan’s Bluff at the end of the street, the 163rd Street subway station a few blocks north, and Broadway’s extensive restaurant offerings a short walk away.
Listings range from $879K to $999K with an average price of $960 per square foot. According to CityRealty listings, this puts Jumel Mansion Condos slightly above Washington Heights’ median price of $881 per square foot for two-bedroom condos. An offering plan with a $3.7 million price was filed at the end of 2018.
