This renovated, over 20 ft wide wood frame townhouse at 11 Sylvan Terrace is only one of twenty landmarked homes as part of the Jumel Terrace Historic District. With extremely low carrying costs, this home can be perfect for a primary resident or investor. The past meets the present in this architecturally designed, beautifully renovated historic row house.

The home is 3 stories with a small private outdoor space that has been thoughtfully reimagined. There are 6 room, 2+ bedrooms, 2 1 ⁄ 2 baths, an open concept living space on the parlor floor and tons of charm. As you ascend the 11-step stoop to the front entrance, you’ll be captivated by the classic yellow clapboard exterior, complete with wooden shutters and bracketed eaves. Inside, the house exudes timeless character and charm, featuring original architectural details that have been meticulously preserved.

A wooden banister, skylight, curved entryways, exposed beams and exposed brick, plus natural hardwood floors throughout are some of the many desirable details. The kitchen is farm-style chic and generously sized. There is an open ceiling cut out and private herb garden making the space naturally well lit. Beautiful stained white oak hardwood floors and plenty of natural light flow throughout the home’s lofty layout.

Special highlights include, bathrooms on every floor, exposed brick and original joists, soaring ceiling heights, original 9’ entry doors, ceiling fans, vented washer/dryer, and stainless steel appliances. Sylvan Terrace is one of New York City’s hidden secrets. 20, wood framed 19th century row houses line the street that was originally the carriage drive to the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest home in Manhattan. General George Washington used this house as his temporary headquarters during the Revolutionary War and more recently, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote part of the award winning musical Hamilton here. This home is moments from the C train, a few blocks from the 1 train as well as near several bus lines.

This location is close to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, City College and many great shops and restaurants.
