Property Description

Cushman & Wakefield has been retained on an exclusive basis to arrange for the sale of 460 West 141st Street, a charming 4 story Beaux-Arts townhouse with a 4 story extension located on the south side of West 141st Street. The house is located within the heart of Hamilton Heights’ Historic District just a short stroll from both City College and St. Nicholas Park.

460 West 141st Street was constructed circa 1905 as one in a row of twelve alternating, red and off-white roman brick, houses spanning 452-474. The house’s beautiful brick façade and short stoop have been preserved along with the north facing views overlooking a quaint stretch of West 141st Street which creates the feel of community onto itself. Present ownership has meticulously maintained the property inside and out for over 25 years preserving a significant amount of detail including fireplaces with mantels, beautiful wainscoting and floors, the original wooden staircase, and a grand entrance with an ornate foyer. Features of the house include high ceilings, rich detail, roof top solar panels and sun drenched outdoor spaces protected by the low-rise nature of the surrounding townhouses to the north and south.

The house was converted to Class A apartments pursuant to a temporary Certificate of Occupancy in 2002 and is presently configured as a large open living space with a full kitchen and dining room on the ground floor and 5 apartments on the 2nd through 4th floors. The apartments consist of 4 large front-back units with en-suite bathrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors and a floor through on the 4th floor. Each of the front-back apartments are connected via a shared door which can easily be opened to restore the house to 4 floor through apartments. Both the ground and second floor rear apartments have access to private, south facing, outdoor spaces and purchasers could seek to add a 3rd space on the roof.

The cellar, which is large with tall ceilings, currently serves as a combination of mechanical space, storage and a laundry room. Purchasers could easily recapture the cellar to increase the property’s usable space either as recreation space connected to a ground floor apartment or a finished basement in a single family home. In addition, the property possesses approximately 1,260 square feet of excess air-rights which could be used to add a partial 5th floor. Any plans for use of the excess air-rights will be subject to Landmarks Preservation Commission approval as the property lies within the Hamilton Heights Historic District.

460 West 141st Street’s distinct architectural character and tranquil location present a unique opportunity that will appeal to an array of purchasers interested in acquiring a well preserved townhouse. Purchasers will have the flexibly of operating the house as an investment property, creating a spacious owner’s unit while deriving supplemental income from the remaining rentals, or undertaking a conversion to a spectacular single family home. The property will be sold on an as-is, where-is basis.

*Ownership is in the process of receiving an updated Certificate of Non-Harassment (CNH). The prior CNH expired in December of 2016.
