Neil Patrick Harris’s 2013 $4 million property purchase once held the title of the most expensive townhouse sold in Harlem, New York. Now, this fully-renovated and restored Hamilton Heights property at 326 Convent Avenue, which was sold for $4,950,000, is the new title holder in town.
A “house of grand proportions,” this single-family townhouse houses over 5,300 square feet throughout five floors. One floor boasts an open living room, a dining room, and a chef’s kitchen that has pewter counter tops and triple mint appliances, while on another floor, there is a grand foyer; a breathtaking master suite that has a bathroom with a large spa, featuring hand-carved mosaic tile work, a free standing bath, and a rain shower; a huge walk-in closet; and a sitting room. Not only does the top floor have sweeping views of Convent Avenue, but it also has two bedrooms, a sitting room, two bathrooms, and a home office.
With the vibe of a European manor, the townhouse features 18th century doors that offer a welcomed blast from the past. There is also a garden level, which can be rented out or used as a rec room, with an extra bedroom, five fireplaces, two laundry rooms, a winding staircase with subtle limestone accents, Herringbone French oak floors, high ceilings, landscaped front and back gardens, stained glass windows, and a shaft for elevator installation within this home, offering high-end, modern living and located near the subway and trending new restaurants.
