Description

MORE THAN A HAVEN IN HARLEM

Rarely is there a home with as much volume, scale, and provenance as 32 Mount Morris Park West.

With 6 levels of living, this monumental, 24-foot wide and park-facing townhouse boasts five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two powder rooms across 7,000 interior square feet, as well as a full primary suite/floor, guest (or investment) apartment on the garden level, and over 2,000 square feet of landscaped outdoor space.

Originally built in 1888 by John Dwight--the baking soda pioneer and owner of Arm and Hammer Co.--Number 32 Mount Morris Park West was intended for his daughter, Clara, and her husband, General Alexander Phoenix Ketchum, who served under Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War.

The owner/designer took great care in their meticulous restoration of this extraordinary mansion, preserving much of the original detail while also modernizing the home for contemporary living. A generous elevator services all floors of the home--including the basement--while a multi-zone Central HVAC system and nine working fireplaces offer comfort and warmth.

Sitting along the eastern border of the verdant Marcus Garvey Park in the Mount Morris Historic District of Manhattan, Number 32's façade is grand and inviting with its large, classic stoop and baronial front doors. Floor after floor, this incredible home offers security, sanctuary and sophisticated living in the center of Manhattan's dynamic Harlem neighborhood:

PARLOR FLOOR

With nearly 13-foot ceilings and a majestic, original staircase, this lofty floor welcomes you into the heart of the home with a formal dining area, comfortable family room, and an airy and bright eat-in chef's kitchen. With an imported granite slab center island, working fireplace and a French door-ensconced breakfast nook--that opens up to a gracious terrace overlooking the lush garden, replete with a Maple and Dogwood tree--the kitchen is an architectural dream with top-of-the-line appliances and a separate butler's pantry.

SECOND FLOOR

Two original cast iron columns and a fireplace, ~ 11-foot ceilings, and a beautiful library alcove add character and scale to a more formal living room on this floor, with lovely park views outside three extra-tall windows. This level also boasts a generous guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom and fireplace, as well as a perfectly appointed and windowed powder room.

THIRD FLOOR

The third floor offers over 11-foot ceilings and a nearly 1,300 square-foot, full-floor primary suite with three distinctive rooms: an unparalleled spa-level bathroom with double sinks and vanities, a cast iron and ceramic tub centered in front of a working fireplace, separate water closet, and a windowed steam shower with privacy screen; a fully customized, walk-in closet with a midnight bar; and a primary bedroom with an original fireplace and French doors opening to the back. A large windowed laundry room with double washer/dryer completes the floor.

FOURTH FLOOR

Two additional and substantial bedrooms with original fireplaces and dedicated, windowed bathrooms complete this upper floor, along with a galley kitchen in the middle that leads up to the fifth-floor bonus level.

FIFTH FLOOR

Unlike any townhouse rooftop in the city, the owner outfitted an impressive and bright glass-enclosed gym/solarium in the center of this floor for an indoor/outdoor flow where the front-facing, decked terrace offers the perfect, landscaped roof with city and tree-top park views, and a rear terrace is home to a barbecue grill for alfresco dining and entertaining.

GARDEN/RENTAL FLOOR

A fully restored garden-level apartment with an open kitchen, primary bathroom and additional basement bonus room--with a separate powder room--is perfect for visiting family and friends, a staff residence, or for additional income. A separate, fully-finished corridor on this level provides additional building storage and access to the ~1,000 square foot private garden sanctuary.

The undesirable dog owner community doesn’t really mingle so not much to worry about. But outside of that super diverse groups that interact all the time. "
